Marlins | First basemen rehabbing

Miami Marlins 1B Casey Kotchman (hamstring) has been running and is close to going on a rehab assignment in the next few days. 1B Logan Morrison (knee) played first base for five innings in extended spring training Tuesday, May 14.

Fantasy Tip: Kotchman is expected to return before Morrison, and Kotchman should become the every day first baseman until Morrison makes his way back. Morrison doesn't have many at-bats in extended spring training right now, so he'll likely spend at least another 20 days getting up to speed. Morrison is a mixed league commodity if he's healthy, but there's no guarantee that the power he displayed before his knee injury will come back full bore.
