BRENT MOREL RUMORS & GOSSIP

First Pitch: The Pirates Are Really Trying to Avoid Another Martinez/Nix/Morel Situation

A lot of things had to go wrong last year to get Michael Martinez, Jayson Nix, and Brent Morel on the Pittsburgh Pirates’ active roster at the same time. Andrew McCutchen went down with an injury on August 3rd, and didn’t return until August 19th. Neil Walker was injured on August 1st, returned for a game on August 5th, and then was out until August 15th. He didn’t return to...

NRIs For Morel and Tabata, Kang Scouting Report, Harrison’s Future, Win Now vs Win Later

The MLB.com transactions page has Brent Morel and Jose Tabata receiving invites to Spring Training. Earlier in the week we learned that Tabata was invited to camp. Morel isn’t a surprise, since he played in Pittsburgh last year, is still in their minor league system, and is currently participating in mini camp. The other day I uploaded the 2015 Spring Training tracker. Morel has...

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...
