ORLANDO, Fla. -- The lobby at the Walt Disney Dolphin Resort was still crackling Thursday morning, but the "hot stove" season is all but over for both Bay Area teams.

The Giants took care of their last significant hole early Thursday morning, agreeing to a one-year deal with slugger Michael Morse that reportedly will be worth more than $6 million. After weeks of checking into every corner of the outfield market, the Giants found their everyday left fielder, a 31-year-old who -- when healthy -- has displayed monstrous power.

The A's, as is their style, went about business in a unique manner. Oakland's suite was largely cleared out by the end of the business day Wednesday, but there was no shortage of action in the less than 48 hours general manager Billy Beane spent in Orlando.

The A's already had picked up replacements for Bartolo Colon, Grant Balfour and Chris Young in the week before the winter meetings, and they added two young arms and an exciting outfield prospect by shipping left-handed veterans Brett Anderson and Jerry Blevins to the National League this week.

"I'm pleased that some of the guys we targeted, it came through," Beane said. "We'll see how it ends up."

The Giants will do the same after wrapping up a process that started in July. It was then that general manager Brian Sabean and the front office, relatively certain that a repeat title wasn't in order, decided to hold tight at the trade deadline.

The Giants could have brought in a haul of prospects by dealing Hunter Pence, Tim Lincecum and Javier Lopez, but Sabean wanted to re-sign all three, and did. The front office determined that the market wouldn't provide many appealing alternatives, and to this point the Giants have added only Morse and right-hander Tim Hudson from the outside.

Still, they have spent more than $170 million to lock in three starting pitchers, two outfielders and a reliever. Will it work?

"It doesn't make it right because we haven't played a game," Sabean said. "(But) I think our foresight into the free-agent market was pretty accurate. If you look at where some of the prices have gone, we hope we made the right decision in being pre-emptive."

Morse, who is coming off an injury-marred season, is a lumbering 6-foot-5, 245-pound slugger nicknamed "Beast."

He fits the Pat Burrell mold the Giants used in left field in 2010. For all that they are sacrificing on defense, the Giants hope to find gains in the power columns. Morse hit 31 homers in 2011, and that pedigree makes him an instant upgrade for an offense that was 29th in the majors in 2013 with 107 home runs. Giants left fielders hit just five balls out of the park in 2013; Morse hit 13 in 88 games for the Seattle Mariners and Baltimore Orioles, although his average dipped to .215 and his on-base percentage was .270, well below his career average (.334).

The main concern with Morse is health, as he has played more than 102 games just once in nine seasons. But the Giants feel comfortable with Gregor Blanco and Juan Perez as backup options.

"When you look at the composite of when (Morse) is able to get out there, the results are tremendous," assistant general manager Bobby Evans said on KNBR.

The Giants still are looking to add to their bullpen and bench, but the Morse signing allows them to head for the holidays with a full lineup. Morse likely will hit seventh, and one industry source familiar with Morse said he was a player tailor-made for the Giants, who had hoped to avoid a platoon situation.

"He'll either miss most of the season or hit 28 homers," the source said. "But he's definitely worth the risk."

  • The A's sent minor league catcher David Freitas to the Baltimore Orioles as the player to be named to complete last week's trade for closer Jim Johnson. Infielder Jemile Weeks went from Oakland to Baltimore. Freitas, 24, hit .231 in 90 games between Triple-A Sacramento and Double-A Midland. In another move, left-handed pitcher Andrew Werner was outrighted to Sacramento. Werner was 12-14 with a 5.78 ERA for the River Cats in 2013.
