FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that the Astros are in “serious discussions” with free agent Michael Morse. If he goes to Houston, he’ll be reunited with Bo Porter, who was the third base coach during his time with the Nationals.

Morse, who turns 32 in March, batted .215/.270/.381 with 13 home runs and 27 RBI over 88 games this past season between the Mariners and Orioles. He missed time with a quad injury and a left wrist injury which required surgery after the season, so the Astros are presumably looking at him as a buy-low option for first base/DH.

ESPN’s Buster Olney reported earlier this week that Morse is looking for a one-year deal in the range of $7-8 million. The Giants and Rockies are among the other teams who have reportedly expressed interest this offseason.

    What a shame for Mickey M to have his stock fall so quickly because of injury just two years after he finally proved he could hit if given the chance. Love to see him bouce back, but with his age and injury history that seems doubtful.

    Kind of like how nobody cares about your bottom feeding Muts?
