Michael Morse 1B/LF.. SF 4 Days

Morse went 3-for-3 with two runs scored in the Giants' 5-2 win over the Phillies on Sunday.

It seems Morse has found a groove at the plate, as he's 6-for-6 in his last two games. He currently owns a five-game hit streak that has boosted his average to .286 on the season. He has 14 hits in his past nine games.

Morse went 3-for-3 with a double, a triple, a run scored, and an RBI in Saturday's win over the Phillies.

After what felt like a month-long cold streak, Morse is beginning to heat up at the plate in the month of August. He is slashing .333/.415/.528 in 36 August at-bats. Morse is a very streaky hitter, so now would be a good time to get back on his bandwagon if he is available in your league.

Morse went 1-for-3 with a run scored and three RBI, as he cranked his 16th homer (410 feet) out of the park on Friday against the Phillies.

It was only Morse's second homer since July 5, which puts almost all of his power production for the Giants before the All-Star break. Morse has stayed fairly consistent otherwise, with his batting average hovering around the .275 mark since the end of June.

Morse (toe) is back in the Giants' lineup Tuesday against the White Sox, Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Morse was limited to pinch-hit duties Sunday due to an infected ingrown toenail, but evidently he's regained enough mobility to where he can return to the field. Although he has homered against Tuesday's starter Chris Sale, Morse has also fanned four times in six career at-bats against him.

Morse was scratched from Sunday's lineup with an infected ingrown toenail, Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Morse is hobbled as a result of the issue, but he will be available to pinch hit in the series finale against Kansas City. It's not entirely clear when he may be able to return to the field, but look for Gregor Blanco to play left field in the interim, with Adam Duvall and Travis Ishikawa splitting time at first.

Morse has been scratched from Sunday's lineup.

A reason has not been provided by the team, but the timing suggests an injury is in play. Gregor Blanco will man left field in his absence with Adam Duvall moving up to the five-hole in the order.

Morse went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Friday's loss to the Royals.

Morse had been given a couple days off earlier in the week to rest and clear his head; he has gone 5-for-11 with a run scored and three RBI in three games since then. After a strong start to the season, Morse really fell off the table in the month of July (.233/.275/.337). He is known to be a streaky hitter, so his month-long slump comes as no surprise, but his owners are hoping that he is beginning to turn things back around. With Brandon Belt (concussion) landing on the DL again, Morse will continue to see regular playing time at first base for the foreseeable future.

Morse is expected to return to the lineup Wednesday, Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Manager Bruce Bochy clarified prior to Tuesday's game that Morse is fine physically, he just wanted to give the 32-year-old two straight days of rest. Juan C. Perez is making his second straight start Tuesday, but it sounds like Morse's role is relatively safe for the time being.

Morse remains out of the Giants' lineup Tuesday against the Brewers, Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Juan C. Perez will draw another start in left field, as Morse sits for a second straight day. There has been no word of an injury to Morse, so it seems manager Bruce Bochy is just more inclined to go with the better defender in Perez at the moment. Morse has chipped in just two homers since June 6, so he's done little to negate his struggles in the field.
