Former Nationals first baseman-outfielder-fan favorite and current Seattle Mariner Michael Morse was claimed off waivers by the Baltimore Orioles, according to CBS Sports. The two teams have 48 hours from the waiver claim in which to strike a deal. By some indications, the Mariners, who have a surplus of outfielders, seem willing to part ways with Morse, who has been injured and underproductive this season.

Morse, 31, has posted a triple-slash line of .226/.283/.410 with 13 homers over 76 games. That’s a hefty dropoff from his career averages of .284/.338/.479. Last season with the Nationals, the popular teammate hit .291/.321/.470 with 18 homers in 102 games.
