Logan Morrison recalled; Dewayne Wise DFA'd

New, comments

The Marlins have recalled Logan Morrison from Triple-A NOLA.


Logan Morrison will be back in a Marlins uniform when the club plays a doubleheader Wednesday against the Reds.

The 23-year-old outfielder tweeted at 6:23 p.m Tuesday night.: "6pm flight to FLL. The Boogeyman is back!"

Morrison, who was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans following a 3-0 loss to the Giants on August 13, was hitting .249 with 17 homers and 60 RBIs in 95 games with the Marlins this season.


Apparently the Marlins thought that LoMo had been punished enough, or maybe, the offense really needed another bat. But, as far as the tweet goes, LoMo has deleted it. Maybe his time in the Marlins reeducation camp has taught him something, but I doubt it will stick. And to be honest, I kinda hope it doesn't. Nothing wrong with being outspoken, he just needs to learn to pick his spots.

In order to make room for him on the 25-man roster, Dewayne Wise was DFA'd and I have no doubt Wise will clear waivers.

LoMo is expected to start both games today, which is fine, and as it should be. However, there is a greater concern and that is what happens to Bryan Petersen's playing time. Hopefully the Marlins will make him the "every day" center fielder and Mike Cameron will become the fourth outfielder. Cameron has no longterm future with the Marlins and he isn't exactly tearing it up at the plate. His slash stats since joining the team are .212/.305/.365. On the other hand, Petersen may have a future with the Marlins and now is the time to explore the possibility.
