Brewers among teams expected to be interested in Logan Morrison

The Marlins have yet to have contract talks with Morrison, who is arbitration-eligible.

The Miami Marlins have yet to hold contract discussions with Logan Morrison, according to a major league source. Morrison is arbitration-eligible, and will either be tendered a contract or non-tendered by the Marlins by Monday's midnight deadline.

The source noted that there is a slight chance that the Marlins non-tender Morrison on Monday, but a trade involving the 26-year old is considered the more likely scenario. The Milwaukee Brewers are among the teams who are expected to pursue Morrison in trade talks, and the Colorado Rockies, Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays could also jump in to fill their first base needs, according to the source.

As Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com first reported last month, the Marlins were receiving "significant interest" in Morrison at the GM Meetings. With first base options like Corey Hart, Mike Napoli, Justin Morneau and James Loney remaining available on the free agent market, teams will likely wait to let those chips fall before making a deal for a player like Morrison.

The Brewers, who remain interested in signing Hart, are rumored to be checking in on every available first baseman, according to the source. Initial reports indicated that they were not interested in Napoli, Morneau or Loney, but Hart's strong market and potential for a two-year deal may have changed the game for them. Milwaukee also discussed a trade for Mets' first baseman Ike Davis earlier in the offseason, according to Andy Martino of the New York Daily News.
