Hitters to sit in Week 17


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/20/2014) If you're planning to start Derek Norris, Michael Morse, Aaron Hill, Nolan Arenado, Brad Miller or Desmond Jennings in Fantasy Week 17 (July 21-27), you might want to read the latest Start and Sit Hitters.

Michael Morse enjoying best numbers since 2011


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Morse has almost exactly the same amount of bats as he had with two teams last year, but while he hit just .215/.270/.381 with 13 home runs in 312 at-bats, he's seen much better overall production this year thanks in large part to a spike in BABIP (.254 in 2013, .324 this year). With a good second half, Morse could approach his .303 batting average and 31 home runs from his career-best 2011 season.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"I really like watching him hit, especially [from] on deck," said Morse. "His approach is kind of similar to mine -- trying to stay up the middle [or hit] the other way [to right field]. Sometimes pitchers tend to pitch him the way they pitch me. So I've been having fun hitting behind Buster."

Michael Morse expected back Saturday

He was sidelined due to a bit of hamstring tightness that bothered him in the previous game, though manager Bruce Bochy told MLB.com he expects him back in the lineup Saturday. 

Michael Morse needs to be owned


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/15/2014) In case you haven't caught on yet, Michael Morse is too valuable to leave on the waiver wire.

It has less to do with his .350 batting average so far (because most any player has the capacity to do that over a two-week span) than what he did three years ago for the Nationals. In what was his last healthy season, he hit .303 with 31 homers and a .910 OPS.

And he's given no reason to believe he's any less than that in two years since. In fact, he hit .291 with 18 homers in what amounts to two-thirds of a season the following year. And last year for the Mariners, he hit six homers in his first 38 at-bats before hand, quadriceps and wrist injuries derailed his season.

Morse's hot start only reaffirms how good he can be when playing at full capacity. Even if you can't make use of him yourself, you can't let a player with his potential fall into the wrong hands.

For additional context, check out our rest-of-season rankings, where Morse is now one of my top 50 outfielders.

Morse is hitting .391 through his first eight games with the Giants. He has driven in seven runs and scored 5 more, with a 1.049 OPS.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
