Brent Morel @ WS @ 22 years of age:

.281/.335/.453/.788 with 66 Ks, 38 BB, 16 HR, and 25 SB in 481 AB this year.

Looking at the two, Fields definitely struck out at nearly twice the rate, but neither took walks at a great rate. Morel actually hit HR at a slightly greater rate than Fields did, if you can believe that. I'm actually encouraged when I compare the two. Here's hoping that Morel can continue to improve. I'd like to see his OPS surpass the .800 mark, though...
I still wouldn't put too much stock in A+ stats. Morel has neither fallen on his face nor soared (statistically speaking -- and by this I mean those are the two poles that would make me consider A+ statistics as really meaningful).
