Logan Morrison 1B/DH SEA 6 Days

Morrison, who hasn't played 100 games in a season since 2011 because of injuries, hired a trainer this year to help keep him healthy, the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Morrison lost much of last season to a hamstring injury. He finally got back to form in late July, hitting .313 with an .856 OPS in his last 54 games. First base is his this year with no competition in spring training. He seems like a safe bet to be productive if he stays healthy.

Morrison will start at first base this season as the Mariners did not address the position in free agency, the Seattle Times reports.Morrison's was effective last season when he played, but health has been his biggest obstacles in recent years. He has not played more than 99 games in any of the last three seasons. The Mariners can play Dustin Ackley, Brad Miller or Willie Bloomquist at first when Morrison needs a rest, but they don't have a long-term answer should Morrison get injured again.

Morrison agreed to a one-year, $2.725 million contract with the Mariners on Friday, Mike Perchick of WAPT reports.

Morrison finished 2014 with a solid batting line (.262/.315/.420), adding 11 home runs over 99 games and 365 plate appearances with the Mariners. His walkout rate dropped dramatically in 2014 (from 11.4 percent to 6.6 percent), which led to a lower overall on-base percentage. However, he figures to be the undisputed starting first baseman for the Mariners heading into 2015, which could lead to a lot more at-bats if he can remain healthy.

Morrison is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rangers.

The return of Corey Hart from the disabled list earlier in the week appears to have cost Morrison playing time, as he'll sit for the third time in seven games Sunday. He was in the lineup for each of the previous three games, but did little to make his case for more at-bats, going just 1-for-9 during that time.

Morrison is out of the lineup Thursday, the fourth time in five games he's been on the bench, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

With the Mariners facing left-handers each of the last two days, Morrison has given way to Corey Hart in the lineup. The two players could form something of a platoon in September, as the Mariners look to maximize their offensive potential.
