Card #70 - Brent Morel
Born: April 21, 1987
Brent opened a lot of eyes in 2010 Spring Training. Morel wasn't going to break with the team, but he made the decision more difficult than it should have been. His defensive skills have been steadily improving since rookie ball in 2008. Primarily a third baseman, the Charlotte Knights have tried Brent out at shortstop in 2010.
Morel made his MLB debut on September 7, 2010 with a pinch hitting appearance in the ninth inning. In his third MLB game is when Brent smacked his first hit in the majors, a solo home run to deep center field, leading off the third inning. It gave the Sox the lead over the Royals and hopefully will be the first of many home runs in the majors for Morel.
