Spring training position battles
A daily rundown of the MLB battles for playing time this March and April
Florida Marlins: First Base
Morrison drives in three while Florida awaits Blalock's decision: Logan Morrison, who's competing with fellow prospect Gaby Sanchez for the first base job, set the bar by starting the Marlins' Thursday opener and collecting three RBIs, including a two-run triple, according to MLB.com.
Meanwhile, free agent Hank Blalock is reportedly choosing between the Marlins and the Rays, tweets Jon Heyman. Neither destination would guarantee a starting spot for the former Rangers infielder, but Florida would give him a more direct route to playing time, possibly at the expense of Morrison or Sanchez.
