Morrison (forearm) made a successful return from the DL in Monday's victory over the Padres while serving as the DH, going 1-for-3 with an RBI double and driving in another run after being hit by a pitch. He also scored once.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran made a successful debut at his new position of DH, opening the scoring by getting plunked and driving in Kevin Kiermaier in the first, and then plating Matt Duffy in the eighth with a two-bagger. Morrison's new position is the end result of the musical chairs prompted by Duffy's ascension to the big league club following the conclusion of his rehab for an Achilles injury suffered while he was still with the Giants. Brad Miller has primarily taken Morrison's first base job, leaving the latter to focus solely on hitting for the time being.

Morrison (forearm) was activated from the disabled list Monday, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Morrison hit the DL in late July with tendinitis in hi forearm, but he'll return to the Rays after finishing up a rehab assignment over the weekend. The first baseman had been struggling -- 2-of-his-last-23 at the plate -- prior to hitting the DL, and he'll look to improve upon the .228/.324/.411 slash line he holds through 294 at-bats on the season. In order to free up a roster spot for Morrison, the Rays optioned Dylan Floro to Triple-A Durham.

Morrison was placed on the 15-day DL Friday with a forearm strain, Steve Carney of 620wdae reports.

EDGE Analysis

Morrison missed six games recently with forearm tendinitis and although he returned to play the Rays' last two games, it appears the injury has resurfaced and is forcing him to the disabled list. Steve Pearce figures to see increased playing time at first base during Morrison's absence.

Morrison is starting at first base and hitting sixth Wednesday against the Dodgers, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports.

EDGE Analysis

He was expected to return Wednesday, and that has come to fruition. Morrison made a pinch-hit appearance Tuesday after missing six games with forearm tendinitis. A former top prospect in the Marlins' system back in 2010, Morrison appears to be on the verge of washing out of MLB, as he has performed below replacement level (-0.1 fWAR) for the second year in a row.

Morrison (forearm) is expected to return to the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Morrison has been suffering from a right forearm tendinitis injury that has caused him to miss the past seven games. He is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game, but said that he could be available to pinch hit. The forearm/wrist injury wasn't severe enough to put Morrison on the disabled list, and the 28-year-old should be good to go for Wednesday's contest.

Morrison (wrist) is reportedly "feeling better" and could find himself back in the lineup on Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although there had been speculation he might make it back in the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the A's, manager Kevin Cash opted to leverage Monday's off day as a way to buy Morrison two extra days of rest. The veteran first baseman looks likely to return for the first of a two-game set against the Dodgers on Tuesday barring any unforeseen setbacks.

Morrison (wrist) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Athletics, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Rays will hold Morrison out for his sixth straight game while he battles a right wrist injury, enabling Steve Pearce to slot in at first base. With Tampa off the schedule Monday, Morrison will have a little extra time to help with his recovery, but it's still uncertain if he'll be available for Tuesday's series opener with the Dodgers.
