Morrison is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Dodgers, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Morrison, who is struggling mightily to the tune of a dismal .094 average on the season, will once again take a seat with the left-handed Scott Kazmir taking the mound. Steve Pearce will draw the start at first base in his stead and bat cleanup.

Morrison is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Steve Pearce will man first base and bat cleanup with a left-hander in J.A. Happ toeing the rubber for Toronto. Morrison has logged just six at-bats against southpaws this season, and his exposure to lefties will remain limited with manager Kevin Cash deploying a strict platoon at the position.

Morrison went 1-for-2 with a walk in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Orioles.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It wasn't exactly an offensive explosion, but by Morrison's 2016 standards, it came close. The struggling infielder was able to get his batting average into triple figures for the first time all season, underscoring the extent of his struggles. The 28-year-old has at least begun to show signs of emerging from his season-long malaise, having now hit safely in four straight games, with two doubles during that span. Morrison continues searching for his first homer and RBI of the season, and has whiffed 24 times over just 56 at-bats. He hit out of the six-hole on Wednesday for the second straight game, and is likely to remain in the latter half of the order for the time being given his lack of production to date.

Morrison is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Orioles, Bill Chastain of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Morrison has gotten off to a dismal start to the season, as he currently has a .080 average, and has sat three of the last five games, but he appears to still have a grip on a starting role. He'll slide down to sixth in the lineup Tuesday and handle the first base duties.

Morrison is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Yankees, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

This comes as little surprise, as the Rays are facing a lefty in CC Sabathia and Morrison has made just one start against a lefty this season. Steve Pearce will man first base and bat sixth.

Morrison is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Red Sox, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Morrison has just six at-bats against left-handed pitching and will unsurprisingly get a day off against Boston's David Price. With just two singles through 40 at-bats, Morrison may soon start to lose playing time against right-handers, as well. Steve Pearce will start Thursday's game at first base.

Morrison is not currently in danger of losing his starting spot despite considerable early-season struggles at the plate, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Manager Kevin Cash made the comments before Wednesday's loss to the Red Sox in overall reference to the various struggling players throughout the Rays lineup, saying it wouldn't be justified "to make drastic" changes in the lineup this early into the season. Notably, Morrison then went 0-for-3 Wednesday, bringing his stat line to a minuscule .050/.050/.116 over his first 40 at-bats of the season.

Morrison is out of the lineup Friday against the White Sox, Steve Carney of 620 WDAE reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The first baseman has just two hits in 29 at-bats on the season, and with dominant lefthander Chris Sale on the bump for the White Sox, Friday presents an ideal opportunity to take Morrison out of the lineup. Veteran Steve Pearce will start in Morrison's place and bat fourth.
