Buddy Bell loves his glove. That was the first thing that came out of his mouth after he was drafted.
At high-A Winston-Salem this year, Morel led the team in RBIs with 79 and hit 16 HRs, which tied him for the team lead, while batting .281. He also led the team in both doubles (33) and stolen bases (25). And only made 11 errors all year.
I would say he is progressing just fine and as well as can be expected. He needs to make the jump to Birmingham next year.
