Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 50 94-95 96 Pitch shows some natural run but is flat, lacking downward plane; has some late life but is not overpowering and will get barreled up when left in the heart of the plate.
Changeup 50 86-89 89 Good velocity separation, shows some feel for throwing it low in the zone and tumbling away from right handed hitters
Slider 60 84-86 86 Above average offering, will generate swing and miss, sweeps out of the zone for a chase pitch against righties and will backdoor against lefties

Acquired from the Nationals in exchange for Kelvin Herrera, Morel lacks the command and pitchability to be a consistent starter. However, the overall stuff is above average and will get hitters out in short bursts out of the bullpen.
