Marrero, a former first-round pick, hit .270 with 11 home runs and 59 RBI at Triple-A Syracuse last season, and he also appeared in eight games with the Nationals.
The two teams have been rumored to be talking about a deal for a while, but it was thought the Brewers were waiting to hear back from Corey Hart before acquiring a first baseman. Now that Hart has signed with the Mariners, the two teams are talking again. The Brewers are hesitant to part with pitcher Tyler Thornburg, which could be why the two sides can't come to an agreement.
"Jordan had a bit of a rough season just because, I think, more due to the dynamics of our club and the way we put it together. There really wasn't a spot for him to get consistent at-bats on our club," manager Walt Weiss said. "I thought it was really important that toward the end of the season we sent him out and he got to go down to Colorado Springs and catch. Then when he came back up, he got to catch some games late. We feel comfortable with him at that position. It is his natural position. He's comfortable back there."
The Mets have been trying to move Davis this offseason, hoping to open up first base for Lucas Duda, but general manager Sandy Alderson recently told The Star-Ledger that it isn't mandatory.
"Let me emphasize one thing: We're not in the business of giving players away," Alderson said.
Morse struggled last season, hitting just .215/.270/.381 in 312 at-bats between the Mariners and Orioles. Morse battled through wrist and thigh injuries for much of the season before undergoing surgery on his wrist in August. The 31-year-old is expected to be the team's left fielder next season.
Also, MLB.com reports that the Astros are pursuing relievers Jose Veras and Jesse Crain and swingman Chad Gaudin. An agreement with Veras, who saved 19 games for Houston in 2013 before getting traded to the Tigers, could be reached sometime on Wednesday.
The Marlins had been aggressively shopping Morrison since their recent signing of first baseman Garrett Jones. In 85 games, Morrison hit .242 with six home runs and 36 RBI in 2013.
Capps made 53 appearances for the Mariners this past season and went 3-3 with a 5.49 ERA and 66 strikeouts in 59 innings.
Morse has a history with manager Bo Porter. Porter was the third base coach in Washington when Morse played with the Nationals. The 31-year-old had his best seasons in Washington, and is looking to bounce back after a .215/.270/.381 slash line.
