BRENT MOREL RUMORS & GOSSIP

Aramis Ramirez Returns to Pittsburgh

Brent Morel started at third base for the Pirates on Monday. The same Brent Morel who has a career .272 on-base percentage. He started again at third base last night as well. This must have struck fear into the hearts of Pittsburgh Pirates fans, perhaps giving them some flashbacks to the bad old days. Thankfully, […]

It looks like Brent Morel is coming up…

I thought the Brent Morel era was over….you thought it was over….but here we are. Morel was pulled from Indy’s game Sunday night and, sadly, is the most logical candidate on the Triple-A roster to join the Pirate infield after Jordy Mercer‘s ugly injury. Mercer headed back to Pittsburgh (instead of Kansas City with the team) on Sunday for evaluation by team doctors. Jung...

Pirates recall Morel from Triple-A

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pirates have recalled infielder Brent Morel from Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday to bolster a bench shortened by injuries.

Game 109: Pirates 9 Diamondbacks 4

For seven innings, this game was frustrating. “Why is Brent Morel a Major League player?/Seriously this year is the year that nobody wants to trade for a prospect?/Seriously, why even bother having replay if you can’t look at that play?/OK, really, Vidal Nuno was A WASHINGTON WILD THING!!!” sort of frustrating. Then, the Pirates’ offense and Diamondbacks’ bullpen combined...

The Pirates face another lefty

At this point, seeing the Pirates line up against another left-handed pitcher makes me feel like I’m Superman and I’ve been in a room with Kryptonite for a week. With Starling Marte out, Brent Morel will start at third base again. Honestly, I have to keep checking to see if his name is Brett or Brent. I would have never imagined that he’d get two consecutive starts during a...

Pirates claim Brent Morel, designate Chase d'Arnaud for assignment

I'm a little behind the gun on this, but the Pirates made a small move on Monday that's probably worth talking at least a little bit about. They claimed Brent Morel off of waivers from the Blue Jays and, to make room for him on the 40-man roster, they designated Chase d'Arnaud for assignment.  Morel was drafted by the White Sox in the third round of the 2008 draft and turned...
