Logan Morrison

Postby MaudDib » Mon Nov 17, 2008 7:20 pm

Does anyone know what the future looks like for this guy. He tore it up last season but was that a hitters league? He doesn't have the best lefty/righty splits. Florida does have a history of moving guys pretty quick so if he keeps up what he is doing than he could see some MLB time. Also he played at Maple Woods College which can also claim Albert Pujols. Any chance this isn't a coincedence?

Everywhere I've read loves his future. He's pegged as a high average hitter with lots of patience. The question is if he's a 20+ HR guy or a 30+ HR guy.

I think with Morrison he has proved he has 20 homerun power and could hit 30 homeruns in his prime as he drives the ball to the opposite field very well. I think he should hit around or above .300 with good OBP's and 20-30 homerun power depending upon his luck that particular year. He is no Pujols but he should be a very good player very soon. ;-D

actually the FSL is a big time pitchers league, not to mention morrisons home park is one of the best pitchers parks in the league...thats the good...the bad is that he had an unsustainable .377 BABIP, so i dont think the .332 avg is a great indicator, but he does have good bb/k rates and more power than his statistics show...by comparison, his slg was .494 in the FSL and his slg was .688 in AFL...he wont see mlb in 09, if anyone in the marlins system jumps up to play 1B in the bigs it would probably be gaby sanchez, who won the southern league mvp

Jimpage pretty much nailed most of what I would say. Marlins will most likely let him have a full season in the minors next year in AA and maybe some AAA time depending on how he fairs. He doesn't have much standing in his way, so he could be full time 1B starting end next year/beginning of 2010. Also he defiantly has 30+ hr power, that's never been in doubt, more so his AVG has been but he has made improvements in that area (though he obviously won't keep up his gaudy BABIP from last year).

Before his big season this year I was reading that scouts felt he was a 30 hr .300 hitter. I snagged him in one of the last rounds of my dynasty prospect draft last year and will certainly enjoy seeing him mash his way to the Marlins first base in 2010.

Here is something I found on rotowire today:

"Morrison, who's been invited to attend spring training with the big club, could get a look in left field, the Miami Herald reports.

Morrison isn't likely to be able to handle the position defensively, but the Marlins have a habit of keeping their options open with their prospects. The important thing here is that the club seems to be fast-tracking Morrison, which could mean a late 2009 big league debut if his bat holds up at Double-A."
