Logan Morrison injury: Marlins 1B aiming for mid-May return

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Marlins first baseman Logan Morrison is aiming for a mid-May return.

Miami Marlins first baseman Logan Morrison is set to start the season on the disabled list as he continues to recover from knee surgery. He's expected to resume baseball-related activities soon, and told Manny Navarro of The Miami Herald that he is now aiming for a mid-May return.

It's been a "frustrating" experience for Morrison, but he's excited to take the next step in his recovery. He's slated to start running the field next week, and he's up to "90 percent on the anti-gravity treadmill," according to Navarro. He is also expected to start throwing and fielding ground balls at some point next week.

Morrison realizes that he'll stay in extended spring training when the regular season begins, and he'll ultimately get his plate appearances in with the team's minor league affiliates. He's been excited by his progression, but Navarro notes that the slow nature of the recovery process has the 25-year-old visibly frustrated.

Morrison hit .230/.308/.399 with 15 doubles and 11 home runs over 334 plate appearances for the Marlins last season. He's spent the past three years with the club and owns a career batting line of .250/.339/.442.
