Report: Marlins, OF Michael Morse agree to two-year deal

Tuesday December 16th, 2014

The Miami Marlins and free-agent outfielder Michael Morse have agreed to a two-year, $16 million deal, reports Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal. The deal includes additional performance bonuses. 

In his first season in San Francisco, Morse hit .279 with 16 home runs and 61 RBI in 131 regular season games, but was hampered by a strained left oblique at the end of the season.

He batted .300 in 10 postseason games as the Giants won their third World Series title in the past five years.

Morse spent his first four MLB seasons with the Seattle Mariners and also played 76 games with the team in 2013 after being traded from the Baltimore Orioles. Morse also spent four seasons with the Washington Nationals, where he had his best season in 2011, hitting 31 home runs and driving in 95 runs in 146 games.

In nine seasons, Morse is a career .281 hitter with 99 home runs and 333 RBI.
