I liked the Morel pick since the time they drafted him so I've been following him a fairly closely. I think defensively he's close to ready. The question is whether his bat will be good enough to play everyday at a corner IF spot. He likely will be a gap to gap doubles hitter with occassional power, although he's shown a bit more pop than when he first entered pro ball.

I wouldn't call him a sure thing by any means but I think he's got a real solid chance to be a decent major league player if he continues to develop.

Shoeless Joe Jackson: The first two were high and tight, so where do you think the next one's gonna be?
Archie Graham: Well, either low and away, or in my ear.
Shoeless Joe Jackson: He's not gonna wanna load the bases, so look low and away.
Archie Graham: Right.
Shoeless Joe Jackson: But watch out for in your ear.
