Number 2: Michael Morse
A postseason hero for the Giants, Michael Morse seemed like a great acquisition to bolster Miami’s lineup in terms of power. Marlins Park plays similarly to AT&T Park, where it becomes tough to hit home runs.
In 2015, Morse did all but add another power presence to the lineup. His average dropped as well, as did nearly every offensive number other than his strikeout rate. Morse struggled mightily, and was eventually traded.
With the Marlins, Michael Morse batted just .214, holding a .276 OBP and -0.8 WAR. At the trade deadline, he was traded to the Dodgers, who released him. Now, Morse plays with the Pittsburgh Pirates.
