BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Milwaukee’s best power prospect by a country mile, Morris survived the jump to Double-A with his slugging credentials intact. The former Auburn first baseman paced the Southern League in home runs and slugging percentage, and more importantly demonstrated a better approach that led to a few more walks. He’s a poor defender already clinging to the bottom rung of the defensive spectrum and will always have a lot of swing-and-miss in his game, so he’ll need to rake to have a future. If he keeps launching moon shots while showing more patience at the plate, he may just become the lefty power bat the Brewers sorely need.
2012 Drafted in 2010, Hunter Morris saw his first Double-A action after just 845 minor-league plate appearances and has hit for more power than was expected, though his lack of patience is concerning and disappointing.
