Daily Futures: Two for the show
A Single Short of Something SpecialLogan Morrison, 1b, Florida Marlins (Triple-A New Orleans)
Monday's stats: 3-for-5, 2B, 3B, HR (1), 2 R, 3 RBI
Morrison might have lost the Florida big league first base job to Gaby Sanchez this spring, but he's still the team's man of the future at that position. He's taken the temporary setback well, just missing a cycle Monday night while grounding out in his final at-bat of the game. Now 7-for-19 with three walks in five games for the Zephyrs, Morrison has a major league ready approach and swing; he'll just need to wait a bit for the opportunity.
To keep reading this -- there are concerns about No. 2 pick Dustin Ackley already, and the Phillies (who are just aflush with talent) have a NEW stud -- you must be an ESPN Insider.
