“It hasn’t hit me yet,” Morel said. “I’ve been on the phone all day. … I’m sure when I’m taking batting practice at Fenway (Park) it will sink in a little bit.”
… Morel said he was surprised about the call-up because of the financial implications to the White Sox.
Chicago will owe Morel a pro-rated portion of the yearly major league minimum salary of around $400,000, and Morel’s “clock” will start toward his arbitration-eligible time.
