The Orioles continue to attempt to bring in a hitter, claiming Seattle Mariners outfielder-first baseman Michael Morse off trade waivers after doing the same with Minnesota Twins outfielder Josh Willingham on Wednesday, according to industry sources. That doesn't mean the Orioles have landed either right-handed power hitter -- at least not yet. Once a player is claimed on revocable, trade waivers, the clubs have 48 hours to work out a deal -- that would be until Friday at noon on Willingham and Friday or Saturday for Morse, depending on when he was officially claimed.

Outfielder Michael Morse, who finished the season hitless in his last 10 games with the Orioles, will undergo surgery Wednesday to fix a bone outgrowth in his left wrist, according to an industry source. Dr. Richard Berger of the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota will perform the arthroscopic surgery, which will shave the bone. The source said Morse should be able to begin using the wrist again in four weeks and should be back to baseball activities in six to eight weeks, so the pending free agent should be a full go by the start of spring training.

Orioles outfielder Michael Morse was hitless in his three at-bats Wednesday night and is now 0-for-15 since singling in the second inning on Sept. 3 in Cleveland. He is 0-for-13 as an Oriole at Camden Yards. Morse said he wasn't overly concerned, and neither was his manager. “Mike, he's been good, I'd just like to see him get some return for how much he wants to contribute,” Buck Showalter said before Wednesday's game. “Sometimes that can get in the way a little bit … We need him. He's been a good addition; just hasn't played out completely yet.” Looking for another right-handed power bat, the Orioles acquired Morse on Aug. 30 from the Seattle Mariners for minor league outfielder Xavier Avery.

There were incredibly long lines at Camden Yards before gates opened this morning for the final game of the season. The first 25,000 fans 15 and over will get a Chris Davis bobblehead. Davis was selected for a bobblehead by the fans earlier in the season. Before the game, Davis will be given the annual Most Valuable Oriole award. “I love what he's done defensively and how he's handled all the attention,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “It would be real easy to give in, a little pass on some phase of the game, as good as he's having offensively, but he hasn't.” Center fielder Adam Jones and catcher Matt Wieters aren't in the starting lineup today.

The Washington Nationals had taken the slow approach with Michael Morse's rehabilitation from a strained right lat muscle, and they felt optimistic the final step would come Monday night. Nine full innings in left field at Single-A Hagerstown would prepare Morse for his return Thursday in the home opener at Nationals Park. "He couldn't do that," manager Davey Johnson said. "That really distresses me. " Morse took himself out of his rehab appearance Monday night after seven innings.

That the Boston Red Sox are talking to free-agent outfielder Adam LaRoche, which was reported Wednesday, isn't exactly new. The Red Sox were among a handful of teams - the Texas Rangers, Seattle Mariners, Tampa Bay Rays also on that list - that had contact with the former Washington National earlier in the winter. But that the Red Sox, presumably in more advanced discussions than before, are back in the conversation is an interesting development in the free agency of LaRoche, and for various reasons.

There was no consistent or significant spike in Brian Matusz's velocity, but for five innings Saturday afternoon, the young left-hander made enough quality pitches to provide encouragement for a team desperately in need of it. But any good sentiment was gone by the time Matusz limped off the mound in the sixth inning, two batters after Washington Nationals first baseman Michael Morse broke a tie by driving an 87 mph fastball into the home bullpen for...

There's no secret that the Orioles are interested in acquiring first baseman-outfielder Michael Morse from the Nationals, but they aren't the only ones. Now that the Nationals have re-signed first baseman Adam LaRoche to a two-year deal, the Nats are now reportedly open to shopping Morse, who will become a free agent after the 2013 season. LaRoche's deal was the chip that needed to fall before any discussion regarding Morse intensified. During the MLB winter meetings, Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said he was open to being trade partners with the Nationals, even though the teams share the same regional market.
