Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle tweets that the Giants have considered free agent Mike Morse to fill their left field vacancy, but they think they can do a better job making a trade. Schulman added that he would not be surprised if the team made a trade over the upcoming winter meetings.

Morse spent most of the 2013 season with the Mariners, posting a .693 OPS in 307 trips to the plate. He missed over a month of time between mid-June and the end of July with a strained right quadriceps. On August 30, the Mariners traded him to the Orioles who were gearing up for a run at the AL Wild Card. However, he suffered from pain in his wrist and wasn’t able to contribute offensively. In October, he underwent surgery to repair bone spurs in his right wrist. Morse will turn 32 years old in March.

      I don’t like Morse lumbering around an outfield.

        He is a liability in the field. Outfield, first base, he was poor at either. His bat is excellent, but his health is a major concern. Plenty of better options out there.

    I would take a chance if the giants play him at first he’s got more pop then belt but he is a injury risk

    Corey Hart might come cheap as a reclamation project – low risk, high reward.

    I would jizz my pants if the Giants got Brett Gardner. Sabean needs to get the Yankees GM on the phone to make it happen!
