Description: Outfielder/first baseman Michael Morse has signed a deal to play with Miami, according to mlb.com.
Insight: Morse is expected to play first base, though he can also handle the outfield if needed. He could bat cleanup and be protection for Giancarlo Stanton which would offer him plenty of opportunities to drive in runs. On the other hand, Marlins Park is a hard place to go deep.
