Round 43: Mitch Morales, SS, Wellington Community HS (Florida)


One sentence analysis:
The speedy infielder has a great glove but could probably use his time at Florida Atlantic to improve his batting.

More analysis and notes:
The Florida Atlantic University signee is a lefthanded hitting shortstop with good speed and a nice arm. Former Brewers and Braves scout Alex Morales' son likely will not sign since he is a late-round HS pick.

From Prospect Wire, 5/25/11: "Mitchell Morales is an undersized slick-fielding shortstop who has signed with Florida Atlantic. His glove is enough to get him some pro attention, but his hitting is not quite ready for that level."

From Josh Hyber, Town-Crier, 7/2/10: "He doesn’t hit for power, and he doesn’t throw 95 mph. He does, however, have passion. He does have speed. And he does have knowledge of the game. Wellington High School shortstop Mitch Morales also has one trait every baseball team needs on its roster: heart."

Morales has not signed with the Nationals.
