    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.

    This year’s annual free agents column has expanded to a top 150, though I’m writing up just the top 55 (it was going to be 50, but I couldn’t help myself). The rest are presented in a list. Not included are players whose contract options are sure to be exercised. Players are ranked based not…

    Aug 30, 2013, 2:50 PM EST

    Tampa Bay Rays' Dan Johnson hits a ninth inning home run with New York Yankees catcher Austin Romine at right during their American League MLB baseball game in St. Petersburg

    Shortly after adding a right-handed bat in Michael Morse the Orioles have added a left-handed bat in Dan Johnson, signing the veteran first baseman to a minor-league deal after he opted out of a deal with the Yankees. Johnson has spent all season playing at Triple-A for the Yankees, hitting .253 with 21 homers and…

  4. Orioles add righty power, get Michael Morse from Mariners

    Aug 30, 2013, 1:46 PM EST

    Michael Morse

    Baltimore wasn’t able to come to an agreement with Minnesota for Josh Willingham, but the Orioles have added a right-handed power hitter in acquiring Michael Morse from Seattle for Triple-A outfielder Xavier Avery. Morse, unlike Willingham, is an impending free agent, so the Mariners were perfectly willing to let him go following a very disappointing…

  5. Orioles claim Michael Morse off revocable waivers

    Last night we learned that the Orioles were awarded the claim on Twins left fielder Josh Willingham, giving them until Friday to work out a potential deal, and now they’ve claimed another right-handed bat.

  6. Jesus Montero’s future in doubt with 50-game ban

    Aug 5, 2013, 2:27 PM EST

    Jesus Montero

    Two years ago, one could have looked at the group of the 14 suspensed Biogenesis players — Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz, Jhonny Peralta, Everth Cabrera, Jesus Montero, Francisco Cervelli, Antonio Bastardo, Jordany Valdespin, Sergio Escalona, Fernando Martinez, Cesar Puello, Fautino De Los Santos and Jordan Norberto —  and concluded that, besides Braun, Montero…

  7. Winners and losers at the trade deadline

    Jul 31, 2013, 5:50 PM EST

    Jake Peavy

    Given how disappointing this afternoon’s trade deadline proved to be, it’s only fair that the annual winners and losers column is a little lopsided. Let’s get right to it: Winners Red Sox: I didn’t like the idea of Boston giving up top prospects for Jake Peavy because I just didn’t see him being a big…

  8. Pirates, Orioles likely to pass on Justin Morneau

    Jul 31, 2013, 1:51 PM EST

    Justin Morneau

    It sure sounds like Justin Morneau is more likely to be dealt in August than before Wednesday’s deadline. According to John Perotto of the Beaver County Times, the Pirates have “next-to-zero” interest in Morneau as they weigh an upgrade at first base or in right field. Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun is among those…

  9. Michael Morse is “very available”

    Jul 30, 2013, 6:31 PM EST

    morse getty

    Michael Morse just returned from a badly-strained right quadriceps muscle and he’s batting just .251 with a .313 on-base percentage in 56 games played this season. But he has good power and a market could develop for him at some point between now and Wednesday’s 4 p.m. ET trade deadline. According to Joel Sherman of…

  10. Mariners designate Jason Bay for assignment

    Jul 29, 2013, 2:14 PM EST

    In preparation for Michael Morse‘s expected return from the disabled list tomorrow the Mariners designated Jason Bay for assignment. Bay signed a one-year, $1 million deal with the Mariners after being released by the Mets and showed good power with 11 homers in 206 at-bats, but he also hit just .204 with a .691 OPS…

    Jul 29, 2013, 1:18 PM EST

    Michael Morse

    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.

    franklin gutierrez getty

    At long last, the Mariners have activated outfielder Franklin Gutierrez from the 60-day disabled list, reports Ryan Divish. Gutierrez had been sidelined since April 22 with a strained right hamstring, just the latest in a series of injuries that has cut into a majority of the 30-year-old’s playing time over the last three years. Since…

  14. Michael Morse strained his quad

    May 29, 2013, 11:33 AM EST

    Michael Morse

    Sabermetrics strikes again: Michael Morse left last night’s game with a strained right quad. Morse suffered the injury while rounding third base during the fourth inning. He was thrown out at the plate and was clearly grimacing as he finished his unsuccessful journey home. Morse is day-to-day, and is unlikely to join the Mariners in San…

    May 28, 2013, 6:25 AM EST

    Miami Marlins  v Tampa Bay Rays

    Rays 10, Marlins 6: Two three-run homers for Kelly Johnson. He also singled, doubled and stole a base. He has 24 RBI in 21 games in May. Six straight losses for the Marlins despite what was, for them anyway, an offensive outburst. Tigers 6, Pirates 5: While it was his second win in a row…

  17. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 29, 2013, 5:40 AM EST

    Russell Martin

    Pirates 9, Cardinals 0: Two homers for Russell Martin and a strong start from Jeff Locke. The Pirates — the Pittsburgh Pirates — are in first place in the National League Central. This goes with the Royals being in first place in the AL Central. I predicted each of these teams would be better this…

    Apr 26, 2013, 12:46 PM EST

    Michael Morse

    Michael Morse got off to a huge start for the Mariners, hitting .293 with six homers in his first 10 games, but then he fractured his right pinkie finger and has struggled since returning.

    Hisashi Iwakuma

    Pitching on his 32nd birthday, Hisashi Iwakuma outdueled Yu Darvish in a battle of Japanese starters Friday as the Mariners beat the Rangers 3-1. Darvish opened the bottom of the first by hitting Jason Bay with one out and then giving up three singles, putting the Rangers in the early 3-0 hole. He was stellar…

  20. Michael Morse could miss a week with fractured pinkie

    Apr 12, 2013, 3:29 AM EST

    Michael Morse

    The Mariners could be without one of the AL’s hottest hitters for a week after Michael Morse suffered a non-displaced fracture of his right pinkie finger during Thursday’s game against the Rangers. Morse, who is batting .293 with six homers, was hit on the hand by a Tanner Scheppers pitch in the eighth inning, but…

  22. Second game in reconfigured Safeco features eight homers

    Apr 10, 2013, 1:48 AM EST

    Michael Morse

    Yeah, but new walls or not, it’s hard to slow down offensive juggernauts like the Astros and Mariners possess. In the second game in Safeco since the walls were brought in, those two teams combined for eight homers in a 16-9 Houston victory. Here’s the list: Houston Chris Carter x2 Jose Altuve J.D. Martinez Marwin…

  23. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 5, 2013, 6:55 AM EST

    Aroldis Chapman and Dusty Baker

    Reds 5, Angels 4: Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton finally upped their averages north of .000 — each went 1 for 4 and drove in a couple — but not enough to matter. Aroldis Chapman came in to pitch the ninth against the top of the order. Mike Trout singled but then he got Aybar…

    Texas Rangers pitcher Darvish reacts after a hit by Houston Astros' Gonzalez goes through his legs in their MLB American League baseball game in Houston

    Rangers 7, Astros 0: Part of me feels like if the Rangers didn’t score all those runs in the eighth and ninth innings that Darvish would have been fresher and finished this thing off. Part of me feels like if he wasn’t facing the Astros that it would have been over in the sixth. But…

  25. Felix Hernandez gives John Jaso a Rolex

    Apr 2, 2013, 1:28 AM EST

    John Jaso

    Wanting to reward the guy who caught his perfect game against the Rays last year, Mariners starter Felix Hernandez sent A’s catcher John Jaso a Rolex before the two squared off Monday.
