Giants signed RHP Bryan Morris to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports that Morris will make a $1.25 million base salary if he's in the majors and could max out at $2 million. The 29-year-old missed half of the 2016 season after undergoing back surgery, but he's a nice buy-low as the Giants try to retool their bullpen.

The Giants are expected to sign right-hander Bryan Morris to a minor league contract.

New Giants closer Mark Melancon said in his introductory conference call that he had talked to Morris about playing with the Giants and general manager Bobby Evans later confirmed that he'll be in camp with a non-roster invitee assuming there are no hiccups. He presumably still needs to pass a physical. The 29-year-old posted a 3.06 ERA in 24 appearances with the Marlins in 2016 before undergoing surgery in June to repair a herniated lumbar disk.

Marlins sent RHP Bryan Morris outright to Triple-A New Orleans.

Morris cleared waivers after being designated for assignment. He'll remain in the organization for now but looks like a non-tender candidate this winter.

Marlins activated RHP Bryan Morris from the 60-day disabled list; designated him for assignment.

Morris has been sidelined since undergoing back surgery in late May. He recently went on a minor league rehab assignment and threw some simulated games, but the Marlins have decided to move on rather than bring him back to the active roster.

Bryan Morris (back) is scheduled to throw a simulated game on Tuesday.

Morris, who underwent back surgery during the first half, recently allowed three runs over six innings during a minor league rehab stint between rookie ball and High-A Jupiter. The Marlins aren't ready to activate him quite yet, but he's getting close.

Bryan Morris (back) threw a simulated game on Saturday.

It's the first time he's faced hitters since undergoing back surgery earlier this year. Morris is slated to begin a rehab assignment soon and will make 5-6 appearances before rejoining the Marlins' bullpen if all goes well.

Marlins transferred RHP Bryan Morris from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The Marlins needed an extra 40-man roster spot for the addition of Fernando Rodney. Morris might be done for the season following back surgery.

Bryan Morris has opted to undergo back surgery.

Morris told reporters last week that surgery was probably the only option to repair his lumbar disk herniation, and further testing and exams proved that to be accurate. Marlins manager Don Mattingly said he's hopeful the right-hander can return this season.

Bryan Morris (back) acknowledged he might need surgery.

In fact, Morris went as far as to say that "surgery is the only option that can fix what is the issue." Manager Don Mattingly agreed that Morris' lumbar disc herniation probably isn't a "15-day thing." All signs are pointing to an extended absence for the 29-year-old.

Marlins placed RHP Bryan Morris on the 15-day disabled list with a lumbar disc herniation.

Nick Wittgren has been called up from Triple-A New Orleans in a corresponding roster move. Morris also dealt with back problems in 2015 and doesn't carry an exact recovery timetable. It could be a while. He had registered a 3.06 ERA through 17 2/3 innings this year out of the Miami bullpen.

Marlins and RHP Bryan Morris avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.35 million contract.

Morris put up a 3.14 ERA in 63 innings in his first full season with the Marlins. He'll once again serve in a middle relief role for the Fish in 2016.

Marlins activated RHP Bryan Morris from the 15-day disabled list.

The Marlins sent down Justin Nicolino to clear a spot for him on the active roster. Morris has been sidelined since June 6 with a lower back strain. He had a 3.95 ERA and 24/12 K/BB ratio over 27 1/3 innings prior to hitting the DL.

Bryan Morris (back) could be activated from the disabled list this week.

Morris will make the second of back-to-back appearances with High-A Jupiter on Sunday while on his rehab assignment. It's possible that will be his final hurdle to clear before activation. "Probably after 30 pitches, we'll be able to assess where he is and make sure the quality of his strides are where they need to be," Marlins manager Dan Jennings said. "He's going back-to-back, which is good. We'll run him out there for two innings. From there, reassess it and make a decision."

Marlins placed RHP Bryan Morris on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain.

Morris suffered the injury Saturday in a relief appearance against the Rockies. He should be ready around the time his 15-day stint is through. Adam Conley is taking over the vacancy in the Marlins' bullpen.
