RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

2016

Morrison has to be among the streakiest of players. He started cold last season, batting .149 with a .391 OPS through April 28 (19 games into the season). In his next 43 games, he scorched the ball to the tune of a .307 average and .876 OPS. Then it was back in the freezer for 56 games, batting .160 with a .551 OPS. In his final 28 games, he hit .266 with an .842 OPS. Ultimately, the cold streaks were longer and more intense than the hot steaks, resulting in career lows in AVG, OBP and OPS. In fact, his .685 OPS was the lowest in the majors among first basemen. On the positive side, he stayed healthy and played a career-high 146 games, the first time in four years and just the second time in his career that he's played more than 100 contests. He was traded in November to the Rays, who could use his left-handed pop (his 17 HR were his most since 2011). He could see more time at DH than first base.

2015

Morrison was in a new town last year after being traded to Seattle in the offseason, but his 2014 looked a lot like his final year in Miami. As in 2013, injuries continued to hamper Morrison, but when he was healthy, he proved that he can be a productive player. A hamstring injury in mid-April sidelined him until June, and then he struggled for the next month or so. But he found his stride toward the end of July and hit .313 with an .856 OPS in his last 54 games, taking over the everyday job at first base. His walk rate dropped to 6.6%, but he made good contact and did not strike out much either. Only 27, it would be nice to see what Morrison could do in a full season with good health. He'll get the chance this season to compete for the starting first-base job in spring training.

2014

Injuries continued to hamper Morrison in 2013, but when he was healthy, he proved that he can be a productive, if slightly mediocre, major league hitter. Though he was unable to regain the 20-homer power that he showed back in 2011, Morrison chipped in 36 RBI and scored 32 runs in 85 games. His inability to catch up with left-handed pitching stands out as he posted a meager .186 average against southpaws with all six of his 2013 home runs coming against right-handed hurlers. Morrison took positive steps with both his walk rate (11.8%) and strikeout rate (16.8%) last season, notably posting the lowest strikeout rate of his career. With a full -- and healthy -- offseason to prepare for the 2014 campaign, Morrison faces a critical time in his career with a chance to re-assert himself as a middle-of-the-order bat. Minor improvements in his contact rate against lefties would go along way toward moving Morrison's overall totals back to respectability and, while he's not a superstar, Morrison could be primed for a bounce-back season. The Mariners acquired him for reliever Carter Capps in December, opening up the possibility of regular DH duty to ease the strain on his troublesome knees.

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.
