With the emergence of Rhys Hoskins and Tommy Joseph likely being on his way out for the same reason, the Phillies have no reason to pursue Logan Morrison. After a surprisingly productive 2017 campaign, Morrison will also draw interest from teams looking for a power bat in the middle of the lineup.
As of right now, that isn’t an area of necessity as the Phillies prepare for the 2018 conquest. Additionally with Morrison coming off a season in which he hit 38 home runs and drove in 85 RBI’s he is going to demand big time money in free agency.
Morrison has also been rather inconsistent before last season, with it being his first season since 2011 that he has hit over 20 home runs. His average has fluctuated along with it, never being higher than .262.
To put it simply, the Phillies should not be in contention for a big bat at a corner infield spot, especially one who has not been consistently productive.
