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.

Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports that Rockies pitcher Tyler Anderson will undergo surgery on his left knee. It won’t be known until after the procedure if Anderson will be able to return at some point this season.

Anderson, 29, struggled over five starts this season, allowing 27 runs in 20 2/3 innings. He had been bothered by discomfort in his left knee since very early in the season. The Rockies demoted him to Triple-A Albuquerque earlier this month, but he hasn’t actually pitched for them due to the knee issue.

Jeff Hoffman is a candidate to take Anderson’s spot in the rotation. He has made one start in the majors this year and has otherwise pitched at Albuquerque.
