Logan Morrison (head) is in Monday's lineup against the Padres.

Morrison left Sunday's game after he hit the wall of the Mariners' dugout with his bat and a piece broke off and hit him in the forehead. He suffered a cut as a result, but fortunately the silly incident won't keep him out of the lineup.

Logan Morrison was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Rangers due to a cut on his forehead.

The injury doesn't appear to be serious and he should be able to return to the lineup in a day or two. John Buck, making his first career appearance at the position, took his place at first base.

Mariners activated OF Logan Morrison from the 15-day disabled list.

Morrison is starting at first base for the Mariners on Wednesday night and could see regular starts there until Justin Smoak (quad) returns. Morrison was batting .150 with a .377 OPS in eight games before suffering a severe right hamstring strain in mid-April. He is not a good fantasy option.

Logan Morrison (hamstring) could begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.

LoMo admitted to still not feeling 100 percent when he ran the bases during a simulated game Tuesday. However, he did some more running Wednesday and will be cleared to start the rehab assignment if he recovers well. Morrison has been sidlined since mid-April with a strained right hamstring.

Logan Morrison (hamstring) is still not ready to begin a rehab assignment.

Morrison batted against James Paxton (lat) and Taijuan Walker (shoulder) during their simulated games Tuesday, but he remained less than 100 percent while running the bases. He won't be allowed to begin a rehab assignment until he's running full-out with no issues. "It's just (a matter) of getting back at it," he said, "and trying to remember - it's weird to say this - how to run. You just kind of feel uncoordinated when you haven't done it in a while. It's a little different when you go from the elliptical and then try to sprint outside. I'm trying to get the feel back."

Logan Morrison (hamstring) is expected to begin a rehab assignment this week.

LoMo has been taking batting practice and running the bases in recent days and on Saturday participated in a simulated game. He seems likely to be activated from the disabled list before the end of the month. "I think he's close," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said. "He's swinging the bat pretty decent. He doesn't seem to be restricted on the basepaths. He's moving as slow as ever."
