RotoWire News: Morrison is a candidate to be part of a leadoff platoon this coming season, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. "We're trying to narrow (it down),'' manager Kevin Cash said. "I don't think we have, as it stands right now, a defined leadoff guy. We're trying a couple different options. ... We're still trying to work through do we have a guy versus left and a guy versus right." (3/17/2017)

Profile: Morrison ended the year as a league-average offensive player, which seemed impossible after he began the year going 2 for his first 44. That arctic cold streak was followed by a torrid May before he settled back in to be the guy he has been most seasons. He changed his approach with Tampa Bay to become more of a pull hitter and attempted to sacrifice contact for power, but he did not achieve enough of the desired results with the aggressive power approach. A wrist injury in early September ended his season, but he will receive another opportunity with the Rays after re-signing with them in February. (Jason Collette)

The Quick Opinion: Morrison's new pull-heavy and contact-be-damned approach did not work in 2016, but he will get another chance with Tampa Bay. Fantasy owners can't get too excited considering his pitcher-friendly home park and lack of recent success, however.
