BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Angel Morales has gotten progressively worse in each of his three seasons at Fort Myers, and is quickly running out of time.
2011 Angel Morales is a compact athlete, with plenty of tools and a need to refine them.
2010 Morales' cumulative numbers might not pop out at you, but it was really a tale of two seasons for him, as he was one of the Midwest League's most dangerous hitters during the second half, bopping at a .317/.372/.533 clip after the all-star break. In a system loaded with toolsy outfielders, Morales ranks right up there with them. He possesses above-average power and speed, but his plate discipline lags behind, and the overall rawness of his game prevents him from stealing as many bases as one might expect. Likely profiling better as a corner outfielder, especially with the organization's crop of center-field prospects, Morales still has a lot of upside, but also a lot of work to do.
2009 You don't often see massive power lines like that of Angel Morales in Rookie ball. Clearly he has the physical ability to hit the ball a long, long way, but he's going to have to cut his prodigious strikeout rate to keep producing at higher levels.
