|(5/19/15) Struggling first baseman Michael Morse is in the Marlins' lineup for Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks. Morse, who was benched for Monday's contest, will bat seventh in the order for just the second time this season.
Morse has had a tough time at the plate all year, and has been held hitless over his last five games. Overall, he has just eight hits and one RBI in 40 at-bats this month.
Marlins 1B Justin Bour moved to cleanup in lineup
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/18/15) Marlins first baseman Justin Bour will bat fourth in the lineup on Monday against the Diamondbacks, the first time he has done so this year, the team announced.
Bour, who will make just his fifth start of the year, will replace Michael Morse at first. Marcell Ozuna, the normal cleanup hitter, will slide down to fifth.
"Putting Justin there, putting him in the four hole," manager Dan Jennings said to Fox Sports Florida. "Trying to create some left, right leverage in the lineup. Let's see what happens. As I told these guys. There are 13 position players that are going to be utilized. We'll get guys days off, we'll use the bench, we'll rest our regulars. We all need to be ready to contribute when the bell rings.
J.T. Realmuto also returns to the lineup on Monday after getting the day off Sunday.
The Marlins are currently the favorites (-122) against Arizona.
Marlins rest Mike Morse, Christian Yelich vs. southpaw Alex Wood
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/16/15) Marlins first baseman Michael Morse and left fielder Christian Yelich were given the day off against left-hander Alex Wood and the Braves on Saturday. Jeff Baker will take over at first base and bat fifth, while Ichiro Suzuki will bat sixth and play left field in Yelich's absence.
Morse has been held without a hit over his last 11 at-bats. He is hitting .214 on the year and is a .143 lifetime hitter against Wood.
Yelich is a lifetime .409 (9 for 22) hitter against the southpaw, but is hitting.160 (4 for 25) since returning from the disabled list.
Miami is favored (-125) at home against Atlanta, per VegasInsider.com.
Marlins 1B Michael Morse collects three hits on Monday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/12/15) Marlins first baseman Michael Morse seems to be emerging from an extensive slump at the plate. Morse, who was benched for a three-game stretch last week, picked up his first three-hit performance of the season in Monday's loss to the Dodgers. He now has six hits and an RBI over his last three games.
Morse is still hitting just .236 with two home runs on the season, but he has been a much better hitter in May than April during his career. Morse has a lifetime .313 batting average in May, compared to .243 in March/April.
|2014 Summary: Though Michael Morse's campaign was shortened by a late-season oblique injury, he had arguably his best season in three years for the Giants. Morse made a triumphant return from wrist surgery he underwent the previous fall and hit .279 with 16 home runs and 32 doubles. However, his power largely evaporated after a hot start, as he hit only five home runs over his final 75 games.|
Playing time status: For the second offseason in a row, Morse will hit the free agent market, but he should catch on somewhere as a regular outfielder or first baseman.
2015 Outlook: Morse showed that, at minimum, he can still hit for a decent average, and over the first two months of 2014, he showed he still has the potential to provide tremendous power. Given his recent trends of health issues and inconsistency, Morse has relegated himself to being an endgame option in five-outfielder mixed leagues.
