Report: Logan Morrison believes he’s staying in Miami

Marlins outfielder Logan Morrison, who’s drawing interest from at least ten teams, believes he’s staying with the team.

Morrison said he believes the Marlins would only trade him if the team “receives a vitamix in return.” Morrison, 26, hit .242 with 6 HR in 85 games during the 2013 season. He’s suffered from knee injuries over the last two seasons, but is expected to be fully healthy by Spring Training. Several teams including the Milwaukee Brewers and Boston Red Sox have expressed public interest in Morrison.

Morrison is a career .249 hitter in four Major League seasons, all with the Marlins. He had a career high 23 HR in 2011, but has never played more than 123 games in a season due to injuries. If what Morrison says is true, then the Marlins’ Winter Meetings shopping spree may end before it’s even begun.

The Marlins recently signed shortstop Rafael Furcal to a one-year contract. Furcal missed the 2013 season due to Tommy John surgery, having last played with the Cardinals in 2012. That signing might be the only edition Marlins’ fans see coming Spring Training. The team has been adamant about not discussing trades for Outfielder Giancarlo Stanton until the 2014 off season.
