• O's add Morse in waiver deal with Mariners

    Summary of 5 articles · Updated Aug 31, 2013
    Morse started the season well in his return to the Mariners, the team for which he had his Major League debut in 2005. Their scenarios are different Morse, for instance, is four years older and just because Davis found his groove that doesn't mean Morse will. Morse is a free agent at the end of the season, so the Orioles are responsible for roughly $1.25 million of his remaining contract. Morse, who is coming off a strained quadriceps injury, posted a disappointing .226//283/.410 line in just 76 games with the Mariners and said he's fully recovered from that and an earlier broken finger. If there are some kind of magical beans that the Baltimore Orioles fed Chris Davis to change him from an underachieving slugger into one of the most feared hitters in baseball, it's time to order up some for Michael Morse. "Baltimore-DC area is a great area. It's a good baseball area. There are a lot of fans. To me, it's always been good. I'm just happy to be back."
