Probably not, shortstop is arguably the 2nd most valuable defensive position, you want a guy who can play the position. And, maybe I missed it, but when did Brent Morel become a guy with a stick we had to find a way to squeeze in the lineup? This isn't like the Angels moving Trumbo all over the diamond last year, Morel is a career .230 hitter (.240 if you ignore the season his back was bugging him). He's not some kind of guy whose going to give you plus offense from any position. Maybe Sanchez will be bad. Likely, even, but what is the harm in keeping him around, seeing if you found lightning in a bottle, and letting Brent get back to game speed in AAA? The Sox aren't going to win or lose anything this year because Sanchez is just a better option than Morel for the 25th spot on the roster.
