(1090 The Fan) — When Logan Morrison was acquired form the Miami Marlins late last year, many were unsure what his role on the team would be with Corey Hart and Justin Smoak already on the roster.
Less than ten games into the season, we’re getting a better idea of what Morrison can bring to the club.
“It’s good to just be out in the field and being involved,” Morrison told the Sandmeyer Show when asked about how it felt playing right field — a position he wasn’t necessarily expected to play often after being acquired. “I don’t care where they put me just as long as I’m in the lineup.”
Morrison, 26, started off predominantly as a left fielder with the Marlins. In 2012, he started seeing a significant amount of time at first base (21 games) — the year after, he played 79 of his 85 games at first.
How Morrison has been recognized in the past few years has not been about what position he’s playing out on the field, however. Morrison’s Twitter presence (@CupOfLoMo) surpasses anyone in Major League Baseball. The Northshore High School (Slidell, LA) grad Tweets on an hourly — sometimes minute-by-minute — basis. It’s safe to say nearly 100% of the Tweets are humorous with an intent to induce a chuckle.
Listen to what else Morrison had to say about playing in several different spots as well as what life is like on the road with a smartphone in his hand.
