|Michael Morse downplays calf injury |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(3/9/14) Giants outfielder Michael Morse doesn't believe his calf injury is serious, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Morse will not play Sunday due to the injury. When asked about his calf, Morse said the injury was "nothing." He should return to action in a few days. Morse hit .215/.270/.381 in 312 at-bats last year.

|Michael Morse goes hitless in three at-bats Friday |

(3/1/14) Giants outfielder Michael Morse went 0 for 3 in Friday's 4-3 win over the Brewers, making him 0 for 5 over the team's first two spring games.
Morse underwent surgery on his wrist in October but declared himself at 100 percent at the beginning of camp. He's looking to rebound in 2014 after cratering with a .215/.270/.381 line in 312 at-bats last season.

(2/17/14) Giants outfielder Michael Morse, who underwent wrist surgery in October, said he is 100 percent. He said the surgery solved the problem that plagued him last season.
Morse said he underwent a simple procedure, and he was swinging a fungo bat a week later and was hitting in the batting cage within a month.
|Michael Morse not intimidated by new park |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(2/4/14) Giants outfielder Michael Morse is not intimidated by AT&T park, according to the Mercury News.
"To me, it's a ballpark -- just like every other ballpark," Morse said. "It plays the way it plays, and I don't think about stuff like that." Morse added that he tries to look on the bright side. He said a big park gives players the opportunity to hit the ball in the gaps and "run for days."
AT&T park is one of the hardest places to hit a home run, according to StatCorner.com. It has a park factor of 64 for lefties and 74 for righties. A park that plays neutral would have a park factor of 100, so home runs are tough to come by near the bay.
Morse slumped through an injury-riddled season last year. He hit just .215/.270/.381 in 312 at-bats.
|Michael Morse finished an injury-shortened 2013 season on a sour note, hitting just .103 over 29 at-bats in his final 12 games, after being traded from the Mariners to the Orioles. This came after 76 games with Seattle, where he hit .226 with 13 home runs. Morse signed with the Giants this offseason, returning to the National League -- where he hit .295 with an .889 OPS over 840 at-bats in a three-season Nationals stint. While he's projected as a starter, Morse still carries some risk -- he's only had more than 450 at-bats once in his career, and has gone over 20 home runs just once, as well. In Morse's favor? While postseason wrist surgery may cause some rust as he enters 2014, it could also explain the offensive sputtering in 2013 (assuming he was dealing with wrist pain all season). Morse is a bit of an injury and (on a lower level) performance risk, but there's a great deal of upside here, and drafters not paying attention to his injuries last season may dismiss him as a fragile flash in the pan. Morse makes for a nice end-game selection in the later rounds of most drafts.
