Morse, the popular former Nationals slugger, was pleased to sign with the Giants in December, and he's hoping he has overcome the injuries and other struggles that challenged him through a dismal 2013 season with the Mariners and Orioles.
Matt Cain pitched three shutout innings in his first start of the spring and Pablo Sandoval hit a pair of RBI singles as the San Francisco Giants defeated the Los Angeles Angels 3-2 Wednesday.

Are the Nats really finished making big moves? The same Nationals, led by Mike Rizzo, have pulled off late offseason surprises in previous years.
Here is a look at the seven trades made between Washington and Oakland in the last three years, and what we know about their results so far.
Former Nats outfielder Michael Morse is returning to the National League after reaching a one-year deal with the San Francisco Giants worth $5 million plus incentives.
The former National missed time this past season with both a broken right pinkie and strained right quadriceps before returning from the disabled list in late July. The 31-year-old nine-year veteran, batted .215 with 13 home runs and 27 RBI in 88 games between the Mariners and Orioles.
The Nationals got the left-handed reliever they'd been seeking, acquiring Jerry Blevins from Oakland for minor-league outfielder Billy Burns.
A new report has former Nats outfielder Michael Morse linked to a National League team and their starting left fielder position.
A .284 career hitter, Morse slumped to a .226 average with 13 homers and 27 RBI in 76 games in his return to Seattle after four years in Washington, where he set career highs with 31 homers and 95 RBI in 2011.
"My first priority was that I wanted to be on a championship-winning ballclub," Morse said. "I didn't want to be on a team that was looking to rebuild or wanted me to come in to help out the young guys. When my agents told me about San Fran, it was a no-brainer for me."
"I wanted to play it in Seattle, but it just wasn't the right fit, and I kind of had to move on from that," Morse said. "But the way I feel now, I've been so humbled from last year that I had to bring it back. It's comfort, and this team is making me feel very comfortable."
