Six months of uncertainty for Logan Morrison
- Updated: August 29, 2012
Logan Morrison will undergo a second knee surgery on September 5th to repair his patellar tendon. Morrison has added more fuel to a disappointing season that the organization wants to forget.
Earlier this month Morrison was put in the 60-day disable list and basically ending his season.
Coming into the 2012 season Morrison was already recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery and was being limited throughout the season. His performance at the plate suffered a great deal but did show signs of life and what he can do for the team offensively if he was healthy.
Bottom line Morrison was never healthy this entire season and the game of baseball you need your legs to have a future and be productive.
The future of Morrison is in serious jeopardy. The 6ft 3in 250lbs man is about go into surgery in a little over a week and the recovery time is a heavy six months. Drawing no setbacks Morrison should be ready right the beginning of Spring Training in 2013.
This is it for Morrison, I’m willing to believe that Morrison will be in the Marlins roster come next year but then again will have to limited due to his surgery. If Morrison has another injury look for his name to come up for serious trade moves.
Another factor that should be considered is his position in the outfield. Marlins ballpark has a big outfield and a man with two surgeries shouldn’t be put in position with constant running, sudden breaks and cuts. A move to the infield must be addressed during the offseason.
Morrison’s move to the infield causes a ripple affect. Carlos Lee is currently the first baseman and it’s not certain if the Marlins will be willing to resign him.
Morrison is still young and has plenty of years ahead of him but after each surgery you can cut five years from his professional career.
Next year is going to be interesting not only for Morrison’s career but also the direction the Marlins take in order to improve from a disappointing one.
Dr. Richard Steadman will perform the surgery according to Michael Jong from fishstripes.com. Dr. Steadman is on of the top knee specialist in the country.
If he stays healthy that just makes the Marlins a better and deeper team.
