WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
Morales is an infielder who has a chance to stick at shortstop.  He’s not expected to develop much power, but could develop the contact skills to move forward.  There were reports that he was taking up switch-hitting.  If he did, the bots at MiLB.com didn’t pick it up, which would be typical.

2022
DSL:  219/363/336, 155 AB, 7 2B, 4 3B, 1 HR, 31 BB, 41 K, 12-19 SB

Morales held his own at the plate, especially for a 17-year-old.  He drew a lot of walks and hit for some gap power.  He played second, short and third, in descending order of frequency.

Morales had a good enough debut that he could reach the FCL at age 18.
