I think it's telling that with Morel on the 40-man and having finished his season in AAA (and presumably healthy considering he was playing in the playoffs), he wasn't let anywhere near the big club following the Knight's season. If the organization had any plans for him, you'd think they would've wanted him around for a tight division race if even just to get the experience of being around it.
