TEAMS: Seattle Mariners

Seattle Mariners outfielder Mike Morse will test his strained right quad on the base paths today. If all goes well, manager Eric Wedge told Larry Stone of The Seattle Times that Morse will be sent out on a minor league rehab assignment. “He’s getting closer,” Wedge said. “We’ll see how he does on the bases tomorrow. When he gets to the point he’s all the way back, we’ll send him out.” When Morse initially suffered his quad injury a little over a month ago, the Mariners were hopeful that he wouldn't require a stint on the disabled list. After missing roughly a week of action, he was able to return to Seattle's lineup. Still, the ailment lingered, and the Mariners ultimately placed Morse on the DL toward the end of June. If he's able to begin a rehab assignment this weekend and all goes well, Morse could be back with the Mariners by the end of next week. They could use his power bat back in their lineup. Prior to hitting the DL, the 31-year-old was hitting .251/.313/.454 with nine doubles and 11 home runs over 227 plate appearances. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
