Marlins set to activate 1B Michael Morse
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/4/15) Marlins first baseman Michael Morse, who has been sidelined for seven weeks with finger and back issues, will finally come off the disabled list in time for the Sunday game against the host Cubs, per MLB.com.

Marlins 1B Michael Morse goes 1 for 3 in rehab game Friday

|(7/4/15) Marlins first baseman Michael Morse played in his first rehab game on Friday, going 1 for 3 with a walk and a strikeout for Class A Jupiter. Morse is recovering from a sprained finger and a back injury. He could return as early as Saturday against the Cubs, though the Marlins have not made any official announcement at this point.
Marlins' Michael Morse going back out on rehab assignment Friday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/3/15) Marlins first baseman Michael Morse is going to play at least one more rehab game with Class A Jupiter on Friday before the team decides if he is ready to come off the 15-day disabled list.
Morse was progressing in his rehab from a right index finger sprain before tweaking his back this week.
"He tweaked his back, we think, very minor," manager Dan Jennings said, per MLB.com. "But we need him to test it so we can see exactly where he is. So he could be here in the next day or two."
Justin Bour's emergence in Morse's absence has the team thinking about using Morse at other positions upon his return.
"When we put this roster together this winter, one of the things we talked about was the versatility of players and the willingness to have guys who can play first, play third, play left," Jennings said. "You've got guys who can move around, and you get the best bats or best matchups in the lineup on any given day. We will look at that. That's what our intentions are, and we'll see how we'll proceed."
Marlins' Morse recalled from rehab assignment due to back injury
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/30/15) The Marlins recalled first baseman Michael Morse from his rehab assignment with Triple-A New Orleans after suffering a back injury, according to The Miami Herald.
Manager Dan Jennings said it was a mild back tweak, and Morse will likely be back during a three-game series against the Cubs, which starts Friday.
Morse has been on the 15-day disabled list since late May due to a right finger sprain. He has spent 10 games on a rehab assignment between New Orleans and Double-A Jacksonville. He hit .265 (9 for 34) with one double, one home run, four RBI, four runs, three walks and 16 strikeouts.
Report: Marlins 1B could return from disabled list within week
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(6/27/15) Marlins first baseman Michael Morse could be on his way back from the 15-day disabled list within the week, per Joe Frisaro of MLB.com.
Morse, who is rehabbing a finger injury, struggled in his first rehab game last week. He went 0 for 5 with three strikeouts.
|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.
