Focus Area
Hitting Ability:Morales' hitting skills do not grade out well currently. He'll have to learn to use his speed more to become an average or better hitter.
Power:Morales has well below-average power.
Running Speed:He's a plus runner who likes to run.
Fielding:Morales is an above-average defensive center fielder. He reads the ball very well off the bat.
Range:Morales covers a lot of ground in the outfield with a gliding running style.
Physical Description:Morales is a thin and athletic outfielder with an Alex Escobar-body type.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:His speed and his defense.
Weaknesses:His bat. He's going to have to learn how to be more of a line drive hitter, a guy who can bunt and play small ball to become a better offensive player.
Summary:Morales is an extremely fast outfielder who likes to run and is fun to watch patrol center field. He still needs to learn how to use his speed to help his offensive game. If he can do that by playing small ball -- more line drives, hitting the gaps, bunting -- he could evolve into a pretty good leadoff type. Right now, except for the pure speed and the plus defense, everything else is a projection.
