Marlins Injury Update: Bryan Morris done for season

By on 9/20/2014 10:30:00 AM

The Miami Marlins lost the Washington Nationals on Friday by the score of 3-2. The loss dropped the Marlins to 74-79 on the season, third in the National League East. With seven games left in the season the Marlins have an outside chance of reaching the .500 mark. They'll have to do so without the services of reliever Bryan Morris, who is done for the season with a lingering groin issue.

I reported on August 30 that Morris left a game against the Los Angeles Angels a few days earlier with an apparent hip injury.  It turned out the injury was a groin strain which has limited him ever since.

An update on Morris, as reported by Joe Frisaro of, is that he has officially but shut down for the rest of the season. Morris has made just four appearances since August 23 and his last on September 9 in Milwaukee.

Manager Mike Redmond appreciated what Morris did for the Marlins after coming over from the Pirates, but needs to get Morris healthy for next season.
"He did a great job for us coming over here from Pittsburgh, really stabilizing our bullpen and giving us another big arm down there. We owe a lot of our success in the second half of the season to him and that bullpen. It's been a big part and will play a big part going forward."
Morris, in his third Major League season, is a combined 8-1 with a 1.82 ERA in 60 games with the Pirates and Marlins. He's allowed 58 hits and walked 24 in 64 1/3 innings, while striking out 50. Morris has a career record of 13-8 with a 2.61 ERA in 120 games.
