Marlins planning off days for Michael Morse to help avoid injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Marlins manager Mike Redmond said Wednesday he will give veteran first baseman Michael Morse days off throughout the season in an effort to keep him off the trainer's table, per The Miami Herald.

"That's definitely something we'll monitor with him -- his health," Redmond said. "Will there maybe be some extra days off for him? We'll see and monitor that as he goes. Really the important thing for him is to keep him on the field. He knows that and we know that.

"But the beauty of our bench is we have options. We have [Jeff Baker]. We have Don Kelly. We can play them if [Morse] needs a blow. Martin Prado too. These guys, they want to play every single day. But at the same time too we need to be smart because we need them for the whole season. Keeping these guys together, healthy and strong is important as well."

Morse is having a productive spring, batting .348 (16 for 46) with one double, four home runs and 14 RBI in 18 games. He also has five walks and 11 strikeouts.

Morse heads to Miami with a .281/.335/.473/.808 slash line over 10 seasons in the majors. He helped San Francisco to a World Series title in 2014, while batting .279 with a .475 slugging percentage, 16 home runs, 32 doubles and 61 RBI in 131 regular season games.

Giants chances of re-signing Michael Morse appear to be fading


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2014) It appears re-signing outfielder Michael Morse is becoming less likely of an option for the Giants, according to SFGate.com.

Giants assistant general manager Bobby Evans said the Giants remain in talks with Morse. However, he is getting a lot of interest from AL teams looking for a DH.

"He’s got interest from other suitors on a multiyear basis, and the market may ultimately sweep him away," Evans said.

The 32-year-old Morse spent the 2014 season with the World Series champs. He hit .279 with a .475 slugging percentage, .811 OPS, 16 home runs, 32 doubles and 61 RBI in 131 games.

Report: Orioles showing 'string interest' in OF Michael Morse


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Morse hit .279 with 16 home runs, 32 doubles and 61 RBI in 131 regular season games before winning a World Series title with the Giants. He had just six hits over 20 postseason at-bats.


Jocketty: Reds targeting Michael Morse, Norichika Aoki


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said Friday that his team will target outfielders Michael Morse and Norichika Aoki in free agency, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The Reds prefer to add to the offense via free agency rather than through a trade, and the outfield is a clear area of need, as none of the team's outfielders who logged at least 200 at-bats in 2014 was able to manage an OPS of .700 or better. A free-agent addition would presumably be brought in to man left field next to Billy Hamilton and Jay Bruce.

Morse helped the Giants to a World Series victory in 2014. He hit .279 with 16 home runs, 32 doubles and 61 RBI in 131 games during the regular season. In the playoffs, he hit .500 (2 for 4) in the NLCS against St. Louis, and then hit .250 (4 for 16) with four RBI in the World Series against the Royals. He missed the NLDS due to an oblique injury.
