Fantasy Impact: Following his rough start, Morrison was able to pick things up at the plate. However, he's been slumping of late, and it would make sense that the wrist issue is at least somewhat to blame. He's posted an OPS south of .700 on the season, which isn't very useful from a fantasy 1B.

Logan Morrison went 2-for-4 in the Rays 4-1 loss to the Red Sox on Saturday afternoon.

Fantasy Impact: Morrison had an absolutely horrendous month of April that saw him comply a .100 batting average and 0 RBI, but has certainly been much better of late. Since May 1st, Morrison has a .275/.353/.459 line with 10 home runs, 31 runs scored, 31 RBI, and three stolen bases. He's certainly a candidate to be moved at the deadline as his contract is up after this season, and the Rays would like to see what they have in Oswaldo Arcia at first base. Morrison will head into the All-star break as a solid CI option in AL-Only, and deeper Mixed League formats.

Logan Morrison went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, and two runs scored against the Angels on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: In the fourth inning with nobody on, Morrison squared up a 2-1 change-up from opposing starter Nick Tropeano for his ninth home run of the season. The longball was his first of July, and first since June 18th. The impending free agent could be moved at some point in the near future, but will continue to only be useful in AL-Only formats for fantasy owners. He'll take a .237/.316/.379 line with nine home runs, 30 RBI, and four stolen bases into tomorrow's matchup against Tim Lincecum.

Logan Morrison went 4-for-9 with an RBI and two runs scored between both games of the Ray's double-header on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: After hitting .351 in May, Morrison's onslaught has started to wain. The five home runs this month is a plus, and he's consistently hitting in the middle of the Rays lineup, but that's not a prime situation to be in currently. This month he's hitting .236/.313/.461, which is much closer to what he's done for the season overall. He'll continue to be a CI option for AL-Only leagues, but those who were hoping for more will be disappointed.

Logan Morrison went 2-for-4 on Saturday, while adding one of the Rays four solo home runs as well.

Fantasy Impact: Morrison kicked off the Rays fourth inning with a solo home run to center off of Giants starter Albert Saurez. It was Saurez's third home run given up to the Rays at the time, and ended up being one-of-four on the evening. After Morrison turned his season around in the month of May/ beginning of June, things have started to slow down a bit. He only had two hits in-his-last 30 at-bats coming into today's game, and is hitting .226 for the month (.351 in May). The home run was his first since he hit four in three games against the Twins earlier this month, and eighth of the season. His current line sits at .235/.327/.388, but since May 7th he's hitting .297/.404/.492. Morrison will continue to be streaky, but is on pace to hit 20 home runs, steal 10 bases, and drive in 50. You could do worse at CI in AL-Only leagues.

Logan Morrison went 2-for-4 with a run scored in the Rays' 5-0 victory over the Astros.

Fantasy Impact: Morrison was only 1-for-16 over the last five games coming into today, making AL-Only owners who grabbed him earlier this month regret the decision. He's still been stinging the ball however, and continues to produce in the month of June (.268/.375/.634, four home runs, seven RBI, nine runs scored). Production will obviously be inconsistent with Morrison, but those that picked him up should consider him a top-25 option at first base the rest of the way.

Logan Morrison went 2-for-5 with another two home runs and three RBI to help lift the Rays over the Twins on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: The two home runs come a day after blasting two against these same Twins. Between Morrison and Evan Longoria, the two have combined to hit nine home runs in four games. Morrison's first blast came in the second inning off of starter Tyler Duffey to tie the game up at one. His second came in the fourth inning on a curve ball which he depostited opposite-field for his seventh home run of the season. Since his first homer on May 18th, Morrison has gone on to hit over .400 with all seven of his home runs, 16 RBI, 15 runs scored, and three stolen bases, bringing his season line to .258/.339/.426.

Logan Morrison continued his amazing hot streak on Saturday, going 2-for-5 with a two-run home run, and two runs scored to help lift the Rays over the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Morrison's fifth home run of the season came against Michael Tonkin in the seventh inning, and was his second in the last two games. We already saw Morrison hit .351/.455/.486 in May, but he's keeping it up in June thus far. So far he's gone 6-for-16 (.375) with two home runs and four RBI, pushing his line for the season up to .253/.337/.387. Morrison has been the fifth-best first baseman in fantasy over the last month, and while that won't continue, his progress has certainly made his AL-Only owners happy.

Logan Morrison went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo-homer out of the cleanup spot on Friday night, in helping the Rays top the Twins by a score of 4-2.

Fantasy Impact: We've already mentioned how much Morrison has improved recently, but now it's becoming consistent. He's now been moved to the clean-up spot in the Rays lineup, and has hits in 12 of-his-last 13 games, including three home runs, nine RBI, and two stolen bases in that time (third-best first baseman the last 15 days). He's not quite Mixed League worthy as of yet, but those in AL-Only formats should continue to ride the streak for as long as it goes.

Logan Morrison went 2-for-4 with a run and a walk on Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Morrison continues his torrid May. He has a hit in eight of-his-last nine games (.419) and has only had three games this month in which he's started and not got on base. His .343/.446/.486 line this month has brought his season stat line to .239/.329/.328, while his three home runs, three stolen bases, and 11 RBI over the last two weeks have made him the top first baseman during that time. Obviously, this output is not something fantasy owners can bank on, but he is a serviceable option at 1B/CI in AL-Only formats.

Logan Morrison went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI, and a run scored against the Yankees.

Fantasy Impact: Morrison has really turned things around in the month of May, and continues to produce. After not tallying an RBI, and only hitting .100 in April, Morrison has turned things around and put up a .349/.453/.508 line with three home runs, 11 RBI, two steals, and a 11/12 K:BB ratio. AL-only owners who took a shot on him can finally take a breath.

Logan Morrison went 3-for-4 with three RBI, including a two-run home run in the Rays 4-3 loss to the Marlins on Wednesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Well, things have changed quite a bit in recent days for Morrison. The home run tonight was off of Marlins starter Justin Nicolino in the sixth inning, when he swatted a 3-1 offering over the right field wall with a runner on to tie the game up at two. In the last two days, Morrison has six hits, which is the exact amount he accumulated in the whole month of April. Since May 16th, he has 15 hits in 32 at-bats (.468 BA) with three home runs, 10 RBI, and two stolen bases. Morrison is certainly worth a look in AL-Only leagues while he's hot, and could finally be turning a corner this year.

Logan Morrison went 3-for-3 with a walk, two runs scored, and a stolen base in the Rays' 4-3 victory over the Marlins on Tuesday afternoon.

Fantasy Impact: Morrison has hits in seven of his last eight games, with three of them being of the multi-hit variety. He's also tallied two home runs, two stolen bases, and all seven of his RBI during that time as well, pushing his batting average over the Mendoza line for the first time this season. For the month of May, he's hitting .340/.475/.468 while striking out only seven times, compared to 12 walks (25/4 K:BB ratio in April). With this current hot streak, Morrison should be considered for a speculative add in AL-only leagues as a CI/1B option. He did hit 17 home runs and steal eight bases last season with Mariners.

Logan Morrison went 1-for-2 with a run scored, an RBI, two walks, and a stolen base in the Rays 7-5 win over the Tigers on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: After an awful month of April where Morrison hit .100/.156/.133 with no home runs or RBI, he's finally started to heat up a bit. He's currently riding a four-game hitting streak, going 7-for-12 with his first home run, a stolen base, four runs scored, and his first four RBI of the season. He won't be viable for 12-team, or 15-team Mixed Leagues at any point this season, but could find a way to be productive in an AL-Only. Morrison should be in the lineup tomorrow against RHP Michael Fulmer.

Logan Morrison went 2-for-5 with a run and two RBI in the Rays 12-2 win over the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Morrison singled in the second inning, and would later score his second run of May, and fourth run of the season. In the third inning, he was able to earn his first RBI as a Ray and of the season when he grounded into a force play with two runners on, and would later grab his second hit and RBI of the evening in the fifth inning when he singled in Steve Pearce, with all of the damage coming off Marcus Stroman. Morrison has been losing playing time, and after starting the season in the two-hole, has found himself hitting seventh. He has zero home runs, and only two extra-base hits on the entire season in 90 at-bats, and is also hitting .144/.238/.167 as well. He may be heating up a bit, but he's got a long way to go before fantasy owners, even in AL-only formats, can take a look.

After not playing since last Sunday against the Blue Jays, Logan Morrison went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run in the Rays 4-2 victory over the Angels.

Fantasy Impact: Morrison's start to his Rays career has been absolutely dreadful, and it's starting to show in his playing time. The Rays had multiple days off this week, and faced two southpaws against the Dodgers in their last series, but regardless Morrison and his .094/.147/.125 line didn't even receive a pinch hit appearance. While he does have hits in four of-his-last eight games, he continues to strike out at an alarming rate, and at this point could be trying to survive being cut, rather than just losing playing time to Steve Pearce.

Logan Morrison went 1-for-4 with a double and a stolen base in a victory against the Orioles on Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: The Rays were certainly expecting better from Morrison when they traded for him this off-season and have finally moved him down from the second spot in the lineup (sixth tonight). He's tallied hits in three straight games, and the extra-base hit is his second in the last three. While things will get better, he's a deep AL-only play at the moment.

Logan Morrison went 0-for-2 with a walk in the Rays' 5-3 loss to the Blue Jays on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: Morrison was acquired by the Rays this off-season in a deal that sent Nate Karns to Seattle. While he did have a solid Spring (.310 BA in 42 at-bats), he has started 0-for-6 in his first two games as a Ray. In addition, Morrison was replaced in the seventh by Steve Pearce after the Blue Jays sent southpaw Brett Cecil out to the mound. While he does not offer amazing upside, Morrison should log the majority of the playing time at first base this year, making him worthy of a roster spot in AL-Only leagues.

The Tampa Bay Rays acquired 1B/OF Logan Morrison, SS Brad Miller, and RHP Danny Farquhar in exchange for SP Nate Karns, OF Boog Powell, and LHP C.J. Riefenhauser.

Fantasy Impact: Morrison has had a very "roller coaster" type of career to this point. Coming from being a prized possession of the Marlins a couple years ago, to being traded for Carter Capps in 2014. Even though he only hit .225/.302/.383 in 2015, it did come with 17 home runs and a very respectable 15.9% strikeout rate. The Rays were in desperate need of lefthanded power, and they get a bit of that in this deal. There's also been rumblings that James Loney could be dealt this offseason as well, which if completed, would be a perfect situation for a Morrison/Richie Shaffer platoon situation at 1B with a few DH at-bats mixed in.

Fantasy Impact: Morrison has provided decent power this season, and his average has improved in September. He is a lower-tier option at first base, but seems like a decent bet to hit at least one more home run this season.

Pinch-hitting in the eight inning, Logan Morrison walked and later scored a run. In the ninth, Logan Morrison had two runners on when he belted home run 15 on the season to bust the game wide open at 8-3.

Fantasy Impact: Logan Morrison always has the ability to blast the big home run in the right spot, but he'll likely be losing some playing time in September due to some of the Mariners' call-ups.

Logan Morrison got the start at first base and went 1-for-4 at the plate with a two-run home run in the fourth inning off of Oakland starter Jesse Chavez, The Mariners came back to beat the Athletics 6-5.

Fantasy Impact: Morrison, who was recently activated off of the DL, hit his first home run since his return for Seattle. Morrison's numbers have slipped in the second half of the season, as he owns a .159 BA with 20 strikeouts in his last 30 games. Morrison should be left alone in all formats.

Fantasy Impact: Morrison has struggled mightily this year and, with the productivity of both Jesus Montero and Mark Trumbo, there is likely no rush to bring back the left-handed first baseman. Morrison should not be on your roster at the moment under almost any circumstance.

Logan Morrison went 3-for-5 with three singles, two runs, and a RBI against the Giants on Monday night. He also struckout once and stole a base in the game.

Fantasy Impact: LoMo has been cruising so far in June, batting .327 with two homers and a stolen base. The three-hit effort on Monday night was his fifth multi-hit game of the month. Keep Morrison active in deeper mixed and AL-Only leagues.

The Mariners stretched their lead to 6-0 on Wednesday night on Logan Morrison’s two-run double in the fourth inning. Morrison propelled the Seattle Mariners to a 9-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field.

Fantasy Impact: Morrison is currently riding a 16-game hitting streak, and is 22 for 68 (.349 BA) during that span. If you are looking for corner infield help, Morrison could help you while he continues to rake.

Logan Morrison went 1-for-3 with a strikeout and a solo home run in the seventh inning off of Angels starter Matt Shoemaker, as the Mariners beat LA 3-2.

Fantasy Impact: Morrison has been hot recently, hitting three home runs in his last four games. After starting the season on a cold-streak, it looks like Logan might be breaking out of his slump with this recent power surge. He has increased his batting average from .149 on April 28th to .222 in a span of one week. Keep an eye on Morrison, he can be a solid value play in daily leagues at the least.

Logan Morrison went 0-for-2 drawing one walk and scoring a run in the Mariners 3-2 victory over the Astros.

Fantasy Impact: Morrison has struggled to start the year, carrying a batting average of .176 and OBP of .236. Not numbers you want a player on your fantasy team to own. Unless Morrison gets hot, and playing time becomes regular, he should stay on the waiver wire in most leagues.
