Seven Teams Interested In Logan Morrison

Yesterday it was reported that the Marlins have informed interested parties that Logan Morrison will be traded in the near future. Miami has already inked Garrett Jones to a two-year, $7.75MM contract, suggesting that Morrison's time with the Fish is coming to a close. You can catch up on all of yesterday's Morrison rumors here, and we'll run down Tuesday's crop of LoMo rumors in this post…

  • Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the PiratesBrewers and Mariners have been the most active in pursuit of Morrison (on Twitter).

Earlier Updates

  • Morrison is "one of five or six" outfield options being considered by the Orioles, tweets's Brittany Ghiroli.
  • Regarding the Brewers' connection to Morrison, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that the team wouldn't pull the trigger on a trade until they knew what Corey Hart's plans were. The Brewers hope to have an answer from Hart soon, he adds, Haudricourt believes that Milwaukee has let Hart know how far it is willing to stretch to bring him back, and at this point, it's a matter of waiting for him to accept or decline. Should Hart decline, Haudricourt sees a trade for a first baseman as the likely outcome (Twitter links).
  • Seven teams are interested in Morrison, according to Juan C. Rodriguez of the Miami Sun-Sentinel, who spoke to an executive that has shown interest in Morrison (Twitter link).
  • The Marlins will eventually move Morrison, but a deal may not take place at the Winter Meetings, according to's Joe Frisaro.

I love Morrison and his potential. He would be, in my opinion the best option to bat 4th, after McCutchen for the Pirates. He has plenty of power with the short porch in right field and will drive in a ton of RBI with Marte, Walker, McCutchen, and Polanco at some point, in front of him. I could see maybe a .270/.330/.450 with 25 HR and 90 RBI from him. I think the Pirates would rather have Loney. A similar contract to Russell Martin should be able to get him, and the Marlins would want Relief Pitching and a Third Baseman for Morrison. Probably Justin Wilson and someone like Wyatt Mathisen (who can move to third due to injury and depth in the organization) or Stetson Allie. I do not think the Marlins would take that deal, making Loney the fit on Pittsburgh.

I’d be fine with a LoMo to Pirates deal, but only as a bench player. Not sure I feel comfortable with him as a starter. Maybe as a platoon at first with Gaby…maybe
