UNDATED (AP) - The Washington Nationals have agreed to send Michael Morse to Seattle as part of a three-team deal that would move catcher John Jaso (JAY'-soh) from the Mariners to the Athletics and pitcher A.J. Cole from Oakland to the Nationals. Morse hit .291 with 18 home runs and 62 RBIs for the Nationals in an injury-plagued season, playing mostly as an outfielder. Jaso, 29, batted .276 with 10 homers and 50 RBIs but became expendable when Seattle signed Raul Ibanez to be its designated hitter.
