Giants' Mike Morse feels fine after wrist surgery

It took a former teammate to grab his wrist in a very specific spot for Mike Morse to realize he may need to see a doctor.

Mark DeRosa, a teammate of Morse’s on the Nationals, clued Morse in that he might have a torn sheath tendon. Hank Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle says that the outfielder had been told at one point by team physicians that the injury could have been in his head. He injured his left wrist while sliding during a game, and until DeRosa grabbed his wrist, Morse was having problems locating what the issue was.

He went to the Mayo Clinic to have surgery on his wrist and now has reported to Spring Training without pain. His production at the plate is going to be a huge factor in whether the Giants can rebound after a disappointing 2013. Morse’s own disappointing 2013 happened as he split the season between the Seattle Mariners and Baltimore Orioles. In just 88 games, Morse hit .215/.270/.381 with just 13 homers. That’s a far cry from his .303/.360/.550, 31 HR, 95 RBI season with the Nationals in 2011.
