Doug Padilla of ESPNChicago.com reports that Brent Morel has been named the White Sox’s Opening Dat starter at 3B. Not a huge shocker since it was his job to lose, but the praise is high:
Already being compared to former White Sox third baseman Joe Crede, Morel is probably further along on defense than Crede was at this point in his career. Crede was highly touted for his offense.
Considering how heralded Crede’s defense was for all those years, this is great praise. Morel is likely going to be hitting 8th or 9th so it’s safe to say defense is more important than offense.
