The Giants are holding a short workout today, and they made some news.

Manager Bruce Bochy said that Michael Morse is in Arizona getting at-bats in the instructional league. He will play in a couple of games, as late as Friday morning, then join the team in St. Louis for the NLCS.

The Giants had to rely on Travis Ishikawa and Juan Perez in left field for the Wild Card Game and NLDS, so getting Morse back could be a tremendous boost if even he’s not healthy enough to start every game of the best-of-seven Championship Series.

Morse batted .279/.336/.475 with 16 home runs and 61 RBI in 131 games this season for the Giants.

He made just two plate appearances in September because of a strained left oblique muscle.
