Morrison (illness) will be back in the lineup for Friday's game in Boston, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Morrison was out of the starting lineup for the past two games while dealing with a stomach flu, but returns to the starting nine for Friday's series opener. The 30-year-old was able to make an appearance as a pinch hitter during Wednesday's game, and should be ready to go following an off day Thursday.

Morrison (illness) is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Twins, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

A case of the stomach flu will keep Morrison out of the lineup for a second straight contest, indirectly opening up a spot in the outfield for Mallex Smith with Corey Dickerson assuming DH duties. The Rays haven't offered any indication that Morrison's illness is more than a day-to-day concern, so expect him to rejoin the lineup at some point during Tampa Bay's three-game series with Boston over the weekend.

Morrison was scratched from Tuesday's lineup against the Twins due to a stomach issue, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lucas Duda will cover first base, pushing Corey Dickerson to DH and opening up a spot for Mallex Smith to start in left field. Consider Morrison day-to-day for now; the severity of the issue isn't clear at this point.

Morrison went 3-for-5 with two RBI from a run-scoring single and solo home run and also scored twice in Monday's 11-4 win over the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Morrison already has a pair of three-hit efforts over the first four games of September, as well as a trio of round trippers. It's simply an extension of the torrid pace he established as August wound down, as he'd gone 8-for-21 with four homers and eight RBI in the last five contests of the month. Morrison has posted career-best numbers in multiple categories this season, with his home runs (36) and slugging percentage (.538) two of the most impressive metrics.
