Comments
Hitting ability:Morris is very athletic, but has some problems with his swing and lacks hittability.

Base running:Runs the bases pretty well.
Arm strength:He has an average arm (at best) from the outfield.

Physical Description:Morris is fairly tall and athletic, a guy who has played football and run track.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths: Speed is his best tool and he's a pretty good defensive outfielder.
Weaknesses: The bat. He doesn't have great offensive instincts.
Summary: Morris is an athletic, switch-hitting outfielder whose best tool is his speed. He uses it well to play a good defensive outfield. Offensively, however, issues with his swing keep him from having good timing at the plate. The Arizona State signee could get drafted by a team that feels they can fix his swing mechanics and help him use his athleticism to his advantage.
