Looks like someone will have less time to tweet photos of himself with his celebrity fans during Marlins games.
Marlins outfielder Logan Morrison is expected to rejoin the team off the disabled list tomorrow, when the Fish start a weekend series against the Washington Nationals.
Morrison announced the expected move himself Wednesday night on Twitter, saying, "Attention DC; Hide ur wives & (hot) daughters. It looks like the Honey Badger will b back Fri."
Manager Edwin Rodriguez confirmed the decision this morning. Morrison played three rehab games with the Marlins' Single-A team in Jupiter this week, hitting a home run in his final game Wednesday.
Morrison has been out of action since he strained his left arch on April 19 in a game against the Pirates. Morrison wore a hard cast for a week (which he later auctioned for charity, netting $1,500 for the American Lung Association), then wore a protective boot before resuming play in this week's rehabilitation assignment.
The Marlins will be glad to have their left-fielder back. LoMo was hitting .327 with 4 home runs and a team-leading 1.061 OPS before the injury. His return could also free up Emilio Bonifacio to fill in for the injured Donnie Murphy at third base.
Additionally, the Marlins expect Javier Vazquez to rejoin the team on Friday after missing two games on bereavement leave.
