Latest Update McClendon says Morrison in line for full-time duty at 1B Wed Dec, 10, 09:22 PM
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 appeared in 99 games for the Mariners last season with 79 of those coming at first base as he found himself in a timeshare with Justin Smoak, Corey Hart and at times Kendrys Morales. Morrison hit .262 with 41 runs, 11 home runs and 38 RBI last year.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Morrison is now 9-for-25 (.360 BA) with five extra-base hits (2 HR), five RBI and four runs scored over his last seven games as he continues to be a solid contributor in the middle of the Mariners lineup. However, he is still hitting just .259 with 11 home runs and 38 RBI through 332 at-bats, which is nothing special.Analyst: Matthew Beck
Morrison is batting .317 in September and continued his hot hitting on Thursday afternoon. He now has 11 home runs and 37 RBIs on the season and will look to finish the season strong this weekend against the Angels.Analyst: David Kerr
Morrison is now 8-for-16 with two home runs and four RBI over his last six games as he tries to salvage what is left of a lost season. When in the starting lineup on a regular basis Morrison has shown the ability to be a solid deep league contributor, but at this point in the year it is hard to make him an add regardless of how he is currently hitting the ball.
