(9/15/14) Giants outfielder Michael Morse, who is nursing a strained oblique, is still a day or two away from returning to action, according to the Bay Area News Group.

|Michael Morse not quite ready for batting practice |

(9/14/14) Michael Morse, who has not played since Aug. 31 due to a strained oblique, was out of the Giants' starting lineup against the Dodgers on Sunday as expected, and it may be awhile longer before he see game action. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Morse may not take batting practice until Tuesday.
|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.
