Logan Morrison shared the good news through his personal Twitter feed:

Morrison is about five months removed from surgery to repair a torn patella tendon in his right knee. He also underwent surgery on that same knee before the start of what became a disappointing 2012 campaign.
LoMo’s agent told Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald that his client should be ready to join the Marlins’ lineup around April 15. If the eccentric 25-year-old can avoid setbacks, that’s a reasonable target date.
