A modest proposal for the Tampa Bay Rays: Release Logan Morrison

April 11, 2017

Re-signing Logan Morrison, even to a one-year, $2.5 million deal, was a curious decision. The 29-year-old Morrison is a career .245/.325/.416 batter who plays indifferent defense at first base, and he hit .238/.319/.414 last year before a wrist injury ended his season. The Rays would be better off using 27-year-old Brad Miller who exploded for 30 homers last year while playing shortstop and first base, at the latter position and just releasing Morrison. If you're going to re-create the 2014 Seattle Mariners, you may as well play the best of the bunch.
