DENVER -- Michael Morse's sore left hip forced Giants manager Bruce Bochy to scratch the slugger from his start at first base in Monday's regularly scheduled game against the Colorado Rockies.

Morse will undergo an MRI on Tuesday to determine the extent of the injury. Morse, who felt discomfort during pregame batting practice, did not express concern.

"It feels pretty good, actually," he said.

Morse, 32, has appeared in 130 games, 16 shy of the career high he reached with Washington in 2011. He has started 125 games, including 82 in left field, 39 at first base and four as a designated hitter.

The right-handed hitter is batting .280 with 16 home runs, 61 RBIs and a .477 slugging percentage.
