The San Francisco Giants have signed outfielder Mike Morse to a one-year deal. According to reports the pact is worth $5 million plus incentives and is pending a physical.
Morse began last season with the Seattle Mariners, but struggled while dealing with finger and quad injuries. He was then moved to Baltimore for the stretch run.
In 88 total games, though, he compiled a .215 average with 13 homers and 27 RBI.
A lot of buzz, but not much sting at Winter Meetings

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
You had to expect things would be quiet at Major League Baseball's Winter Meetings given the flurry of activity that took place last week.
In reality, though, these meetings are rarely action packed. This year it just seems to be extra slow considering the bigger names like Robinson Cano, Jacoby Ellsbury and Carlos Beltran have already found new homes.
Sure there are years when all the big free agents find a new home at these meetings, like in Dallas, Texas two years ago, when Albert Pujols, Jose Reyes, C.J. Wilson, Heath Bell and others signed, but more often than not the bulk of the action at this event surrounds second- and third-tier players.
