Published:
HOUSTON -- Seattle outfielder Michael Morse has been traded to the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for outfielder Xavier Avery.
Baltimore claimed Morse off waivers earlier this week before completing the deal Friday.
The 31-year-old Morse hit .226 with 13 homers and 27 RBI in 76 games for Seattle. He missed 31 games early this season with a broken finger on his right hand. Morse spent the previous four seasons with the Nationals where he hit 31 homers with 95 RBI -- both career-highs -- in 2011.
Avery has spent time at Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk this season. The left-hander hit a combined .259 with 70 runs scored and is 29 for 37 on stolen-base attempts. He hit .223 with six steals in 32 games for the Orioles last season.
