Earlier on Thursday, Marlins outfielder Logan Morrison was spotted wearing a fresh cast on his left foot, and it appeared likely that he would land on the disabled list. Now it's a certainty, and I'll just let Morrison tell you why in his own words:
Breaking news: sprained ligament in my foot out 2 to 4 weeks. Suck on that. Told u fantasy people not to pick me up
A sprained foot ligament obviously isn't any kind of severe injury with a high risk of recurrence, and Morrison will be just fine when he's healed, but for now this throws a wrench into the Marlins' plans. Stupid MRI machines.
Morrison's best-case scenario is that the cast comes off on Monday, after which he can resume baseball activities. Until he's able to return to the Marlins, Scott Cousins and Emilio Bonifacio should benefit. Of course, what's good news for Scott Cousins and Emilio Bonifacio is usually bad news for whoever is giving them jobs. Morrison will be missed.
