Logan Morrison is currently on the 15-day disabled list with a knee injury, but the Marlins outfielder doesn't expect to return this season.

Logan Morrison wasn't having a great 2012 season -- hitting just .230 in 93 games -- but now it appears a knee injury will keep him from returning at all. Morrison doesn't expect to return to the Miami Marlins this season, according to a report in the Palm Beach Post.

He was originally placed on the disabled list on July 29 with inflammation in his right knee. The injury requires surgery, which Morrison has to wait to have. The reason for the delay is to allow the swelling in the knee to subside.

"If you're doing surgery and there's swelling in the knee, it makes it hard," Morrison said. "It creates more scar tissue. He wants to wait and let that go down and get it as healthy as possible before doing surgery."

Morrison was hitting just .230 with 11 home runs in his second full season in the Major Leagues. His .707 OPS was down significantly from the .798 he posted in 2011.
