Michael Morse has been out since May with a strained quadriceps, but the Mariners outfielder is rehabbing in the minors and just about ready to come off the disabled list.

Interim manager Robby Thompson described Morse as “champing at the bit” to return and Greg Johns of reports that Morse could be back in the lineup as soon as this weekend.

Morse got off to a big start before cooling off considerably, hitting .251 with 11 homers and a .767 OPS in 56 games overall before going on the DL. Acquired from the Nationals in January as part of a big three-team deal with the A’s, he’s an impending free agent making $6.75 million.

    He is a very dangerous slugger when healthy.

    I have this funny feeling that this offseason he’s going to be going back to the Nats.

      As a Nats fan, I love the idea. But it would really require Rizzo to admit that he called it wrong this year.

        Yeah, but you know how stubborn Rizzo is. Seems any GM in DC is that way to be honest…especially Rizzo and McPhee.

    I doubt that would apply. It wasn’t a mistake to trade to get back a former top 100 prospect, and minor leaguer who’s become their best LH reliever in a trade for a guy who’s already missed 50 games. If they get him back next year, it’ll just be money.

    Because some players can never be mentioned without reference to them using steroids, I feel like we should be consistent and mention that Morse was busted for using steroids back in 2005.
