Twins To Sign DH Logan Morrison

Morrison is a left-handed hitting first baseman and designated hitter. He played some outfield earlier in his career. He is a big man who was always touted for his power potential. As a 29-year-old, he broke out with easily the best year of his career. He hit .246/.353/.516 (.868) with 22 doubles, 38 homers and 85 RBI for the Tampa Bay Rays.
Morrison will likely get a lot of at bats as the Twins Designated Hitter, though he can also spell Joe Mauer from time to time at first base. His best defensive position is clearly DH, though.
The question for you all is this... was his 2017 power showing an anomaly, or was it a sign of things to come?
Tom wondered what if Morrison made sense for the Twins.
