Orioles, Rangers Showing Interest in Morse

According to reports from Bob Nightengale of USA Today, both the Baltimore Orioles and Texas Rangers have shown interest in bringing in free agent Michael Morse.

The Rangers could use Morse to play the outfield after recently missing out on free agent target Torii Hunter to the Minnesota Twins. The Orioles, meanwhile, now need to replace both Nelson Cruz and Nick Markakis, as Cruz signed with the Seattle Mariners and Markakis signed with the Atlanta Braves. Morse’s right-handed power would play anywhere, but both teams play in hitter-friendly environments, which could make either destination appealing for the reigning World Champion.
