Seattle Mariners right fielder Logan Morrison was removed from Monday’s lineup against the Texas Rangers before the game even began. According to Greg Johns of MLB.com, it is being described as a tight right hamstring.
Morrison, who has had his fair share of injuries, was acquired by Seattle in the offseason for reliever Carter Capps. He has played in eight games thus far and is hitting .150 (3-for-20).
Morrison was in the starting lineup that was turned into the umpire crew as the official lineup, so it will look a little odd at the end of the game when you see Morrison’s line in the box score with all zeros across and Michael Saunders as a pinch hitter.
Speaking of Saunders, he is taking this opportunity and running with it. As of the top of the 6th, Saunders was 2-for-3 with a triple as the Mariners lead the Rangers 6-0 and were still threatening.
