Here are a few Marlins health updates from manager Mike Redmond on Monday before the Fish kickoff a three-game set here at Petco Park against the Padres. > The time has finally come for Logan Morrison. Redmond said the first baseman will begin playing in extended spring training games Tuesday. Morrison, who had knee surgery this off-season, hasn't played in a game since July 28. "He's been able to run the bases and do his stuff," Redmond said. "He's ready for some game action. He'll be able to go out there and start getting some at-bats." > Barring a surprise development expect the Marlins to make a move to send second baseman Donovan Solano to the disabled list. Redmond said Solano can field, but can't hit because of an intercostal strain. > Catcher Jeff Mathis, who missed just about all of spring training with a fractured right clavicle, will be moving up to Double A Jacksonville on Tuesday according to Redmond. Mathis played in his fourth game in Single A Jupiter Monday night. He's gone 4-for-14 with four RBI since returning to game action. Despite his promotion, Redmond said the Marlins don't really have a time frame for Mathis' return.
