Logan Morrison “felt a pop” in his foot Tuesday and an MRI exam revealed a sprained ligament that’s expected to keep him out for 2-4 weeks.

Morrison reacted to the news on Twitter, further solidifying his status as the best-tweeting MLB player:

Breaking news: sprained ligament in my foot out 2 to 4 weeks. Suck on that. Told u fantasy people not to pick me up.

As if that wasn’t endearing enough, he painted pinstripes on his cast to blend into the Marlins’ uniform:

Prior to the injury Morrison hit .327 with four homers and a 1.061 OPS in 15 games, building on a very impressive rookie half-season that saw him bat .283 with an .837 OPS in 62 games. Emilio Bonafacio replaced him in left field yesterday, which is a dramatic dropoff offensively.
