White Sox: Three Possible Designated Hitter Options for 2018
Logan Morrison put together his best all-around year with the Tampa Bay Rays in 2017. The 30-year-old hit a career-high 38 home runs with 85 RBIs. Morrison provides left-handed power which the Sox need for this upcoming season.
However, Morrison hasn’t hit higher than .247 in a season in which he appeared in more than 120 games. Last year, Morrison hit .246/.353/.516 for the Rays. His 38 home runs were the most he’s hit since 2011 with the Florida Marlins. That year he hit 23 home runs in 123 games for the Marlins.
Morrison has yet to play consecutive seasons of more than 140 games in his career. In 2017, he appeared in a career-high 149 games. However, this was coming after a season in which he only appeared in107 games for Tampa Bay in 2016. If the Sox sign Morrison, they would need him to play more than 140 games in order for the team to have success from the DH spot in the lineup.
