Logan Morrison will miss the next six to eight weeks of the season after fracturing his right wrist while playing first base on Friday for Double-A Jacksonville, according to BA correspondent Mike Berardino:
Morrison brought his glove hand, the right hand, into the baseline to fetch an errant throw and got it caught on the baserunner as he sped by.
"We were hoping it was just a bruise, but the MRI showed it was an emulsion fracture," (Marlins vice president of scouting and player develoment Jim) Fleming said. "It’s not a big deal. It’s in a splint right now and they’re debating whether to cast it or not."
Morrison, 21, hit .332/.402/.494 in 130 games last year in the high Class A Florida State League, then went on to dominate in the Arizona Fall League. Morrison is Florida’s No. 3 prospect behind center fielder Cameron Maybin and right fielder Mike Stanton, and is the No. 18 prospect in all of baseball.
