Logan Morrison on the trade block
MLBtraderumors is reporting that Logan Morrison is going to be shopped at the winter meetings. He won't be a free agent until 2017 but has really underwhelmed these last few years after a pretty solid rookie season. Once upon a time he was a top 20 prospect and a darling of some people for his ability to work the count. But he's posted a 92 OPS+ the last two years while only playing in 178 games. He's probably best as a DH but can play a corner OF spot.
I can't imagine he'd cost a lot to get and he's still young enough (26 next year) to turn it around in a better environment. But I'm not sure that's us. He had that twitter war with management a few years ago which might not endear him to our FO and he's a LH power bat (ideally) so might not be suited for TF. Still, he's going into arbitration and the Marlins would probably be willing to trade him to save money. I don't think he'd cost a top prospect but maybe one or two in the 7-12 range.
