Marlins | Logan Morrison aiming for May

Miami Marlins 1B Logan Morrison (knee) is hoping to return to the team in early to mid-May. The club could choose to put him on the 60-day disabled list, though, if they feel he'll be ready closer to June, which would open a spot on the 40-man roster. Morrison will start running on the field and taking ground balls next week, and he's been going at 90 percent intensity on an anti-gravity treadmill. He has also taken swings in the cages but has yet to take batting practice. Morrison will begin the year playing games in extended spring training.

Fantasy Tip: Morrison is an extremely risky selection, even late in drafts. He could easily miss half the season, and then there is the chance that his power is sapped in the second half as he adjusts to his new knee. He's now a part of one of the weakest lineups in baseball, too. There isn't much to like here in 2013.
