Prospect of the Day:  1B Hunter Morris

Morris struggled in his first few games of the season, not collecting his first hit until game number four, but things have turned around significantly since then. He is 9-for-22 in his last five games with six doubles and four RBI. Those types of power numbers are what Brewers fans expected from the slugging first baseman this season, especially after last season’s campaign that featured a Brevard County Manatee record 19 home runs.

The young man needs to show better command of the strike zone. He needs to walk more and strike out less, but it’s always exciting to see a legitimate plus tool in any player in the minor leagues. For Hunter Morris, that plus tool is power. Huge power. On the podcast a couple weeks ago, right-hander Jimmy Nelson identified Morris as the single player that he thought was a sure-fire major leaguer in the Brewers’ farm system.

The 23-year-old Morris should enjoy his time with Double-A Huntsville, too, as he was born in Huntsville and played his college baseball at Auburn. He will surely have a cheering section or two for him in the stands at Joe Davis Stadium.
