Michael Morse needs to be owned
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

In case you haven't caught on yet, Michael Morse is too valuable to leave on the waiver wire.

It has less to do with his .350 batting average so far (because most any player has the capacity to do that over a two-week span) than what he did three years ago for the Nationals. In what was his last healthy season, he hit .303 with 31 homers and a .910 OPS.

And he's given no reason to believe he's any less than that in two years since. In fact, he hit .291 with 18 homers in what amounts to two-thirds of a season the following year. And last year for the Mariners, he hit six homers in his first 38 at-bats before hand, quadriceps and wrist injuries derailed his season.

Morse's hot start only reaffirms how good he can be when playing at full capacity. Even if you can't make use of him yourself, you can't let a player with his potential fall into the wrong hands.

For additional context, check out our rest-of-season rankings, where Morse is now one of my top 50 outfielders.

Michael Morse goes hitless in return to lineup Friday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Giants outfielder Michael Morse went 0 for 2 in Friday's 3-0 win over the A's.

It was Morse's first Cactus League game since March 12 due to a calf strain. He's 4 for 19 with three walks this spring.

Michael Morse gets through minor-league game
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Giants outfielder Michael Morse was able to play six innings in a minor-league game Thursday, and he appears close to returning to Cactus League action from a calf injury.

"Great. Awesome. I didn't feel a thing," he told the San Francisco Chronicle after appearing in the game.  

Morse homered and was able to play in the field in the game, and told the Chronicle he expects to be in the lineup against the Athletics Friday.
