Brewers' Morrison: 'I'm a borderline All-Star' when healthy

If there's anyone who still has shares of Logan Morrison stock, it's Morrison himself.

"When I'm healthy, I'm a borderline All-Star," Morrison said, according to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com. "I'm healthy now. I don't see why that would change. I'm another year older, another year wiser."

Morrison, 32, is in camp with the Milwaukee Brewers on a minor-league deal, looking to earn a spot on the big-league roster come Opening Day.

Though he's never appeared in an All-Star Game - and he's combined to hit .187 in 124 games over the last two campaigns - Morrison isn't that far removed from a career-best season.

In 2017, Morrison slashed .246/.353/.516 with 38 home runs (fifth-most in the AL) and 85 RBIs over 149 games with the Tampa Bay Rays.

Morrison hit home runs in consecutive days this weekend, including a three-run bomb Sunday. It remains to be seen if Milwaukee has room for him with Ryan Braun and Justin Smoak expected to split time at first base. If Morrison doesn't break camp with the Brewers, don't expect him to stick around waiting.

"I hope I get (an) opportunity to show what I can do," Morrison said. "And if it's not here in the big leagues, somewhere else. I'm not a Triple-A player. I proved that last year and (in) years past. So I'm not going to Triple-A. We'll figure out what happens."
