According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, Mike Morse "strongly opposes being a designated hitter."

That could present some complications in the Nationals' trade talks with American League clubs. Morse is almost certain to be dealt at some point before the start of the 2013 regular season because Adam LaRoche is now locked in at first base and the Washington outfield is filled. ESPN's Jim Bowden reported Tuesday that 10-11 clubs have already expressed interest.
