Fantasy Impact:

Interestingly, first base was the only position on the field -- save for pitcher and catcher -- that Morel did not play in 2023 but he is expected to transition to first base beginning in Winter Ball. The 24-year-old impressed with his bat in 2023, hitting .247 with 26 homers, six stolen bases, and an .821 OPS across 429 trips tp the plate.
