Marlins Marlins monitoring LoMo's health as camp nears

Aside from Logan Morrison, the Marlins should be relatively healthy when Spring Training gets under way.

In terms of injuries, Morrison's right knee is the biggest red flag facing the team. The 25-year-old, who is converting from left field to first base, will not be running at full strength when camp opens. He may be cleared to pick up the pace toward the end of the month.

Spring Training for Miami's pitchers and catchers begins on Feb. 12 at the Roger Dean Stadium complex in Jupiter, Fla. Full-squad workouts are set for Feb. 15.

Morrison is recovering from right knee surgery, which was performed by Dr. Richard Steadman in Vail, Colo., last September. It was the second procedure to the same knee in less than a year.

"The big thing is LoMo," Marlins president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest said. "I think we're all aware of kind of where he is. Although you never really know until he gets on his legs and gets out on the field."

The knee was an issue for Morrison since last Spring Training. He tried to play through it, but ended up missing most of the second half of the season.

Morrison spent most of the offseason rehabbing in Scottsdale, Ariz. He's also being examined by a Miami physician, Dr. Lee Kaplan.

"We're going to be patient," Beinfest said. "We'll wait for him to be back. We'll work with Dr. Steadman and Dr. Kaplan on anything that's going on with the knee."

Morrison was limited to 93 games a year ago, and he was never able to get into a consistent groove. His average suffered, as he finished at .230 with 11 homers and 36 RBIs. Although there is optimism Morrison will be healthy for much of the season, there is a chance he won't be ready for Opening Day.
