MIAMI -- Marlins manager Mike Redmond reiterated the team's intention to have Logan Morrison play out the length of his rehab assignment to give the first baseman more at-bats before returning to the Majors.

Position players can spend up to 20 days on rehab assignments.

Morrison underwent offseason surgery on his right knee and has not played with Miami since last July.

Morrison's rehab assignment, which began with Class A Jupiter on May 20, will end in time for him to make his debut on June 9.

However, the Marlins will be playing the Mets in the final contest of a six-game road trip that day, likely pushing back Morrison's return to June 10 against the Brewers at Marlins Park.

The first baseman is currently rehabbing with Double-A Jacksonville.
