RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Morrison hit .310 in April before sputtering through the summer and eventually being forced to the DL with a knee injury that required September surgery. The balky knee is the same one that gave him trouble down the stretch in 2011, although the team is optimistic that he will be ready for spring training. Morrison's third season spanned just 93 games and generated a paltry .230/.308/.388 over 292 at-bats, but he managed to hit 11 homers in limited action, one season after popping 23 long balls in just 121 games. His plate discipline is trending in the wrong direction as his walk rate has dipped from 14.3 percent in 2010 to 10.3 and 9.3 percent the last two seasons. With health, and possibly a change of scenery, he still has some untapped potential.

2012

Morrison got off to a hot start but things rapidly cooled down for him after some nagging foot and knee injuries, and he actually got demoted in August for what most observers assume were off-field conflicts with management (although the front office denied it at the time). The rift seems to be repaired now and Morrison had offseason knee surgery to try and alleviate the nagging injuries. Assuming all systems are go he'll enter 2012 as the only left-handed power source in an improving Marlins lineup. If he can regain his plate discipline while maintaining the pop he discovered last season, he'll be in line for some very nice fantasy numbers.

2011

Called up to replace Chris Coghlan in left field when Coghlan got hurt, Morrison came reasonably close to replicating Coghlan's 2009 Rookie of the Year performance, getting on base at an amazing clip thanks to an elevated BABIP and solid walk rate. Morrison's sweet lefty swing gives him a good chance of maintaining that batting average, however, and he should see some of his doubles and triples clear the fences before long, although he'll probably never be a big home run threat. The big question in the short term is what position he will play. He's below average in left field and could be a plus defender at first base, but Gaby Sanchez is doing his best to convince the club that he's the Marlins' long-term solution at first. Wherever he plays though, Morrison will hit.

2010

A broken hand cost Morrison some precious development time, but he still looked like a future star when he was in the lineup. His BB/K rate was ridiculous, doubly so for a 21-year-old at Double-A, and while his power numbers regressed, the hand injury is the most likely culprit there. He'll start the season off at Triple-A New Orleans, and if he shows a little bit of pop don't be surprised if he finishes the year as the Marlins' starting first baseman.

2009

After a couple of unremarkable years in Rookie ball to begin his pro career Morrison began to take off in 2007, and his upward trajectory continued last season. A modest home run total is no embarrassment for a 20-year-old hitting at High-A Jupiter, and Morrison seems to be developing a very nice, well-rounded offensive arsenal. If he continues to progress at Double-A this season, Gaby Sanchez's window to establish himself as the Marlins' first baseman of the future will slam shut in a hurry.
