Morse will undergo an MRI on his left hip Tuesday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Morse suffered a hip injury during batting practice Monday, which subsequently caused him to be scratched from the lineup. As a result, the Giants will send him for an MRI to obtain more information on the ailment. Consider him day-to-day for now, with Joaquin Arias and Travis Ishikawa representing potential candidates to take his place at first if he has to miss additional time.

Morse was scratched from Monday's game against the Rockies after suffering a hip injury during batting practice, Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area reports.
Something seemed amiss when Morse was immediately removed from the lineup when the Rockies and Giants resumed a suspended game from May 22 earlier in the day, and we now know the reason behind it. He'll be considered day-to-day, and will be replaced at first base by Joaquin Arias.

Morse went 1-for-3 with a run scored and a two-run double in Saturday's win over the Brewers.
Morse delivered a clutch hit in the fourth to put the streaking Giants ahead of the Brewers. While the power hasn't been there this month (one home run in 75 at-bats), he has been showing increased patience (20:8 K:BB) and has driven in the same amount of RBI in August (11) that he did in both June and July combined. Morse can be a frustrating player to own given his streakiness, but the overall product (.281, 16 home runs, 60 RBI) has been solid this season.

Morse is out of the lineup Thursday against the Rockies, Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Morse is still batting .280 with a respectable .337 on-base percentage for the season, but his power numbers are tailed off precipitously since early June. He's produced just one homer in August, and will simply get the day off Thursday after starting each of the last 14 games.

Morse went 0-for-2 with a RBI in Thursday's regularly scheduled game against the Cubs.
Morse was replaced in the field in the bottom of the seventh inning, which is a common occurrence. While it's not ideal that Morse often loses at-bats late in games, he's been swinging a hot bat as of late, hitting .429/.512/.657 in the last 14 days. The veteran slugger has hit just two homers since July 5, but he's more than capable of going on a power binge at any point.

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.
