The 2018 Boston Red Sox lineup should look like this

ST. PETERSBURG, FL – AUGUST 20: Logan Morrison /

6. 1B Logan Morrison

On most other teams, a hitter like Logan Morrison would not be batting 6th in the order. The 2018 Boston Red Sox will not be like most other teams.

Eric Hosmer and Carlos Santana are the two top free agent first basemen available, while Morrison is a second-tier player. With the addition of J.D. Martinez though, Morrison makes the most sense for Boston. He can add power to the lineup in the bottom half of the order and will be a great compliment to the other players already on the roster.

Last season, Logan Morrison hit a career-high 38 home runs. Don’t expect that from him again. It’s a lot more likely that LoMo drops back a bit, but that’s not a terrible thing. He could still end up hitting 15 to 25 homers in 2018, and from a #6 hitter, you likely wouldn’t find a better player in the league.

Morrison is also a very capable first baseman. He has a career .995 fielding percentage from first, with 23 errors on 4,442 chances.
