Marlins' Logan Morrison to undergo "routine" knee surgery

     Logan Morrison slammed into one too many outfield walls last season. The result: Morrison is scheduled to undergo "routine" surgery on his right knee on Monday, according to the outfielder's agent, Fred Wray.

     "Nothing major," Wray said. "Kind of a routine scope. They'll clean whatever needs to be cleaned up. They say he'll be back on a bike in a week and be ready for spring training."

     Morrison injured his knee in two separate collisions into the outfield wall last season. He also suffered a gaping wound near the knee when teammate Emilio Bonifacio spiked him accidently while chasing after a pop fly. As a result, Morrison has been bothered by lingering tendinitis, Wray said.

     Surgery is to be performed by Dr. Lee Kaplan, the Marlins' team physician.

     "It was something that had been bothering him," Wray said. "He didn't feel 100 percent, so they're going to go ahead and scope it. Sounds like a better-safe-than-sorry thing. This is not major."
