Michael Morse has been a big part of the Washington Nationals' success over the past two seasons. The outfielder and first baseman is one of the most-liked players in Washington, and is good in the clubhouse as well.
But there are a number of factors that may influence Morse's future with the Nationals. The slugger has dealt with injuries, and has only one year left on his contract.
The outfield free-agent crop is extremely deep this season as well, which doesn't help Morse's outlook with the team. If Washington can land one of them, Morse would become expendable.
Washington would be wise to continue building for their future and try to trade Morse this offseason.
