It’s Hard Being A Marlins Fan – Logan Morrison Sent Back To The Minors…

MIAMI (AP)—Logan Morrison(notes) was stunned. He was headed back to the minors.

The Florida Marlins sent Morrison to Triple-A New Orleans and released veteran infielder Wes Helms(notes) after Saturday night’s 3-0 loss to the San Francisco Giants.

“Heartbroken, man, disappointed,” Morrison said. “I play through injury and this is how you get treated. It doesn’t seem very fair to me.”

Morrison went 0 for 3 with a walk Saturday night but had two hits in each of his previous two games. The 23-year-old outfielder is batting .249 with 17 homers and 60 RBIs on the year.

Morrison, who tied Texas’ Nelson Cruz(notes) for the major league lead with 26 RBIs in July, said his demotion was attributed to his batting average. But Morrison, one of the team’s most outspoken players, believes there are other reasons.

“I don’t know if that makes any sense to me or you guys,” Morrison said. “I asked for an explanation and the one I got was, ‘You are hitting. 240.’

“I think it was something else. I don’t even want to say it right now. I am just going to talk with my agent.”

Following the resignation of manager Edwin Rodriguez in June, Morrison was reprimanded by the team for comments he posted on his Twitter account.

Morrison said he feels “resentment” and “anger” over the decision.

He said Saturday he was called into a meeting with president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest and general manager Mike Hill. Neither was available to comment after the game.

The Marlins will announce the corresponding roster moves for Morrison and Helms before Sunday’s game.

  1. Are you kidding me?? The Marlins are nuts. I thought the O’s, my other favorite team were the most disfunctional team in MLB, but this takes the cake. Seems if you don’t agree with the owner 110% you get shipped out. It is hard to follow this team when they pull this crap. Even the announcers had a hard time trying to explain it today. This stinks on the level of the terrible Dan Uggla move. Maybe LoMo will get moved to a team that appreciates him. Yet we continue to put up with all of Hanley’s crap.
