CHICAGO -- The two homers and four RBIs produced by Brent Morel in Thursday's 8-1 victory over the Indians fit the power profile usually attached to a corner infielder. That effort, though, gave Morel just five homers and 30 RBIs.
This year of experience should help Morel develop at the plate, with the rookie already providing stellar defense at third. But he doesn't seem too concerned about fitting that home run profile for a starter at the hot corner.
"Obviously, I would like to hit as many as possible," Morel said. "The more home runs you get, the more runs you are scoring and driving in and stuff like that.
"Hopefully, they come naturally. I'm not going to go out there and try to do anything different. Hopefully, it's the progression. And the experience I gained, I'll be more comfortable."
