3. Brent Morel, White Sox: Morel fits more the mold of a batting-title contender than a power-hitting type, sort of a right-handed Wade Boggs type (without the walks). That’s not to say he has no pop, but it’s not as big a part of his game right now. He has hit .305 in the Minors since being drafted in 2008, and that should continue. He’s very good with the glove, even showing the ability to play shortstop if needed. A good spring could land him the job at the hot corner for the White Sox on Opening Day.
