No Logan Morrison: Marlins Reportedly Trade Him to the Mariners

Chicago Cubs Rumors, MLB News and Rumors

mariners logoToday’s Logan Morrison rumor probably popped up as discussions reached the level needed to actually pull something off. But that something is a deal with the Mariners, not the Cubs.


At the same time they reportedly signed Corey Hart to a one-year deal, the Mariners picked up another power bat with questions about his ability to play a defensive position. Clark Spencer reports that the Marlins sent Morrison to the Mariners for 23-year-old righty Carter Capps.

Capps is already a big league arm, throwing 59 innings out of the Mariners’ pen last year. He was bit hard by the long-ball and a sky-high BABIP, and, if those things normalize, he could be a solid reliever. He struck out 24.4% of the guys he faced last year, while walking just 8.5%. This is a pretty solid return for the Marlins, suggesting the price on Morrison wasn’t a giveaway.

On to the next option.
