Prior to tonight's game against the San Diego Padres, the Rays have activated Logan Morrison off the disabled list and have optioned Dylan Floro to Triple-A Durham to clear the roster spot for Morrison.

Morrison has had a down-up-down year as he started off with one of the worst months of April in franchise history, but then began to turn it around as he went on a tear in May and it carried over for some of June. Since then however, he has regained his slump that he began the year with. He is also now currently without a position as the acquisition of Matt Duffy has forced Brad Miller over to first base, who has been playing just incredibly as of late. Logan Morrison so far in 2016 has slashed .228/.304/.371 with nine home runs over 329 plate appearances. He will become a free agent once the season concludes.

Morrison hit the disabled list after dealing with a sore forearm in late July, then may or may have not been made worse by his fantastic catch at Dodger Stadium where he fell into the stands to catch a foul pop-up.

Floro showed glimpses of potential, but did also show signs of struggle during his brief major league stint. He'll likely rejoin the team once September hits and rosters expand to 40-men instead of 25. He was adept at getting the groundball, which has been his calling card throughout the minors as he produced them 55% of the time over a small sample size. Floro ultimately ended up allowing eight runs -- seven earned -- on 23 hits (.434 BABIP) over 15 innings pitched.
