Bold Prediction No. 4
Logan Morrison is the Brewers “Unsung Hero”
It’s no secret that Logan Morrison has arrived at Brewers Summer Camp in the best shape of his life. He played extremely well back in spring and he’s continuing to play well now. He’s dropped weight, added muscle, and trained against guys like Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander during the break.
With the DH addition and added roster spots through the first month of the season, Morrison is a good bet to make the initial roster. As a left-handed power bat, Morrison is in fantastic position to thrive with the Brewers.
While Morrison likely won’t be an everyday starter, he could fill a role similar to Jesus Aguilar in 2017 as a first base only defensive player that provides thump off the bench or as a DH. Defensively, Morrison is limited to one position, which hurts his ability to be an everyday player on this roster, especially since his position already has a starter in Justin Smoak.
Still, whenever Morrison does get his chances at the plate, I think he’s going to make the most of it, coming up with some big home runs and some timely hits.
Since he’s most likely to be a part-time player, Morrison’s contributions aren’t going to be widely recognized, thus he will earn the Brewers “Unsung Hero” title in 2020. The big time guys like Yelich, Keston Hiura, and Brandon Woodruff will all get the widespread recognition for their contributions to the team. Morrison will be the unsung hero, providing a big impact in a smaller amount of playing time that most TV baseball analysts won’t talk about.
Morrison is also going to become a fan favorite amongst the Brewers fan base. He’s already well on his way there with his social media posts and general fun demeanor. In case you haven’t noticed over the past few years, the Brewers have had a number of fun personality guys that contribute to the culture of this organization and that just make the team so much fun to watch.
