Mike Zarrilli

Nationals' utility player on the radar of Orioles.

Searching for a player that can help roster flexibility the Baltimore Orioles are interested in adding utility outfielder Michael Morse via trade, FOXSports.com's Jon Morosi is reporting.

Morse, 30, served as the Washington Nationals backup/utility player last season and could be available via trade if the Nats are able to sign re-sign first baseman Adam LaRoche. So far, there has been no progress on a new contract between the two parties

Last season, Morse played 67 games in left field, 36 in right field and one at first base. In 102 games, he hit .291 with 18 home runs and 62 RBI.

The previous season, Morse played in 146 games, 85 at first base, and hit .303 with 33 home runs, 95 RBI and 73 runs.

If Washington is unable to re-sign LaRoche its expected Morse will be the one to fill the spot.

According to the Washington Post's James Wagner, Washington could be looking to package Morse and another player for a good starting pitcher.
