Latest Update Morrison back in Sunday's lineup Sun Aug, 24, 10:40 AM
Has great size and plenty of run-producing ability. Can play both first base and the corner outfield positions. Is quite patient for a power hitter.
Flaws: : His home-run ability is not overwhelming, so he needs to cut down on his strikeout totals to maximize output. Is not refined as an outfielder.
Morrison was just dealing with a 24-hour stomach bug. Nothing more. He's fine today and back at first base for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.Analyst: Howard Bender
#LoMoBePukin' What are you gonna do? The guy's sick. His absence from the lineup probably isn't killing anyone's fantasy team anyway. And if it is, what are you gonna do? The guy's sick.Analyst: Howard Bender
Morrison has now hit safely in nine of his last 10 games, which has him slashing .333 with one home run, six RBI and nine runs scored in the month of August. However, even with his recent performance he is still slashing just .231/.285/.361 with six home runs and 24 RBI through 216 at-bats, making him a fringe fantasy option outside of AL-only formats.Analyst: Matthew Beck
The home run was Morrison's sixth of the year. It's been a disappointing season for the first baseman as he's battled injury and performed poorly when healthy. His 23 home-run-season in 2011 (just 123 games) was three years ago. He's played 232 games in the past three seasons, hitting precisely 23 home runs in that time. Ugh. Analyst: Spencer Silva
