Futures Game Diary: Bottom 2nd

Marlins 1st base prospect Logan Morrison leads off the inning with a single. Morrison has great strike zone discipline and a ton of power. However, his swing mechanics do not take full advantage of his prodigious pop, as it lacks loft. He could be a Kevin Youkillis type of hitter, but right now he's looking more like Nick Johnson. Lo-Mo also shares Nick Johnson's predisposition for injury. With Gaby Sanchez looking solid at first base for Florida, Morrison may be trade bait in a year or two. If his swing is tweaked and power develops, Sanchez would likely go.

The innings ends quickly...time to move one
