Michael Morse designated for assignment

The Pirates have designated 1B/OF Michael Morse for assignment.

Fantasy Impact

Morse won a bench role with the team this spring but failed to collect a hit in his first eight at-bats of the regular season. Even if he returns to the majors this season, it will likely be in a reserve/platoon role.

Michael Morse is 2-for-2 in loss

The Milwaukee Brewers continue their dominance over Pittsburgh, but Michael Morse went 2-for-2 as he replaced Pedro Alvarez in last night's loss. Morse had a triple and a double while scoring a run.

Fantasy Impact

Morse has not played enough to be viable in fantasy leagues, but consider he batted .303 in August and tacked on another 2-for-2 evening last night. Monitor the struggles of Pedro Alvarez with the bat. Morse may receive more playing time down the stretch.

Michael Morse goes 2-for-3 in loss to Giants

The Pirates fell to the San Francisco Giants on Friday by the score of 6-4. Three Pirates had two hits in the loss, including Michael Morse. He doubled, walked and scored two runs and is now batting .228 for the season.

Fantasy Impact

Morse has only nine extra-base hits in 180 at-bats. He's struck out 60 times and has a woeful .620 OPS, compared to his career average of .795. Morse is not seeing much playing time, and generally is not producing when he does.

Michael Morse goes 0-for-3 in Pirates win

The Pittsburgh Pirates were able to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in extra innings off of the bat of Pedro Alvarez. Gerrit Cole also pitched a solid six innings to keep the Pirates in the game.

Fantasy Impact

Michael Morse went 0-for-3 on Friday night against the Dodgers. Morse is only batting .212 on the season, which is one of the lowest on the team. Morse will be a platoon guy with Travis Ishikawa and Pedro Alvarez. Whoever is playing best will get the starts at first base, so Morse is a valid fantasy option.

Michael Morse traded to Dodgers in huge deal

Michael Morse, who has been playing some outfield and first base for the Marlins, was acquired by the Dodgers on Wednesday night in a huge three-team deal with the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Impact

This move is likely detrimental to Michael Morse's fantasy value, as Adrian Gonzalez is a clearly superior first baseman (to most of MLB, not just Morse) and the Dodgers outfield is already crowded with Yasiel Puig, Carl Crawford, Joc Pederson and Scott Van Slyke. It is assumed that Morse will likely be a power bat off of the bench.
