The Giants signed Michael Morse to a minor league deal Friday, according to Baseball America’s Matt Eddy.

San Francisco also added Jimmy Rollins and Justin Ruggiano on minor league contracts, according to Eddy.

Morse, 34, appeared in just six games with the Pirates last season before he was designated for assignment and ultimately released. However, during his last stint with the Giants in 2014, Morse hit .279/.336/.475 with 16 home runs and 61 RBIs.

Here’s the latest from around the National League West:

  • The Dodgers finalized a four-year deal with infielder Justin Turner, who many considered to be one of the best infielders on the market.

  • Arizona signed outfielder Oswaldo Arcia, giving the club some outfield depth to turn to in 2017.

  • It would make sense for the Rockies and White Sox to make a deal involving Jose Quintana, who might be dealt before the season starts.

  • San Diego is still searching for starting pitching help and is reportedly considering Jake Peavy and Jered Weaver.

  • The Giants seemingly have plenty of options to turn to when it comes to creating their ideal middle infield.
