Mike Morse Signs Contract Extension with Nationals

Mike Morse has officially agreed to a multi-year contract extension with the Washington Nationals, the team announced. The deal was announced prior to the two parties exchanging arbitration figures, and contingent upon a physical which has since been completed, according to the team. 2012 marked Morse's second year of arbitration eligibility.

The first baseman/outfielder broke out in his first full season in the majors, hitting .303/.360/.550 with 31 homers, and racking up 3.0 wins above replacement in value. He even garnered NL MVP consideration, finishing 19th in the voting. To date, he's a career .296/.356/.499 hitter in 1260 plate appearances.
