SEATTLE -- Outfielder/designated hitter Logan Morrison had hoped to be out on a Minor League rehab stint by now and zeroing in on a return to the Mariners, but the 26-year-old reinjured his right hamstring last week while trying to run and isn't sure now on the timeframe for his recovery.

Morrison went on the 15-day disabled list on April 15 after hitting .150 (3-for-20) in his first eight games. He was acquired from the Marlins in December in a trade for reliever Carter Capps.

Morrison said he hurt the hamstring again shortly after the Mariners headed out on their last road trip.

"It was getting better, but I was running the bases and felt it pull again, so I'm kind of back to where we were," Morrison said Thursday. "I'm in the pool and walking the treadmill and stuff like that. So I'm progressing again and hopefully soon I'll be back to running and after that back out there playing. It's been a while."

Morrison said he was still only running at about 70 percent speed when he reinjured his leg.

"We did an MRI and it actually was worse than originally diagnosed," Morrison said. "But it'll be alright, eventually."

Morrison had 23 home runs and 72 RBIs for the Marlins in 123 games in 2011, but played just 93 games in '12 and 85 in '13 while dealing with a pair of knee surgeries.
