Morrison has been playing with the injury since May, and obviously has been in discomfort since then.
Morrison is batting .230/.308/.399,with 11 home runs and 36 RBI through 93 games.
Morrison had surgery on the same me back in December to repair a tear in his patella tendon
An MRI in May showed a new tear in the tendon from a suture, made in that surgery.
“From what I was told, there’s a suture that was made to keep the patella tendon together, and because I tried to ramp up activity so much it opened back up,” Morrison said
the likelihood of shutting Morrison down for the remainder of the year is strong, given the fact that the Marlins are in sell mode and regrouping and restructuring the team.
