LoMo arriving for series finale at New York

NEW YORK — Logan Morrison’s return to the Marlins is coming a day earlier than initially planned.

With a couple of Miami players hobbled, the organization has decided to bring Morrison in for Sunday’s series finale against the Mets at Citi Field.

On rehab assignment with Double-A Jacksonville, Morrison had one at-bat on Saturday night before being pulled from the game in Birmingham, Ala.

Morrison is heading to New York in time for Sunday’s afternoon game.

It was an exhausting Saturday for the Marlins, who outlasted the Mets, 2-1, in 20 innings.

Chris Coghlan, who was replaced during the game, has been dealing with a sore calf muscle. And Casey Kotchman, recently reinstated from the 60-day disabled list, is a banged up. Kotchman was out for two months with a strained left hamstring.

There is a chance one or both could be headed for the disabled list.

Morrison, who had right knee surgery last September, opened the season on the 60-day disabled list. His 20-day rehab assignment stint ended on Saturday.

The Marlins had been planning on reinstating Morrison on Monday, when the team opens a three-game set with the Brewers at Marlins Park.
