  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Morel is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds.

    Morel started the past five games and will receive a day off after he went 4-for-14 with two home runs, a double and five RBI during that span. Nelson Velazquez will man center field and bat ninth Sunday.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Leads offense with home run

    Morel went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Phillies.

    Morel's fifth-inning blast against Aaron Nola, his 16th of the season, sparked a four-run inning that led the Cubs to victory. The rookie has now gone deep in consecutive contests, and with seven games left this year, he has an outside shot at getting to 20 home runs. Morel looks primed for a big 2023 campaign as he figures to be a regular from Opening Day onward.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Knocks 15th home run

    Morel went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 2-1 victory over the Phillies.

    Morel grooved a first-pitch slider from Phillies ace Zack Wheeler for a distance of 374 feet to right field for his 15th long ball of the season. It was just his second homer in September despite seeing fairly regular playing time this month. The long ball was timely, as Morel is batting just .182 in 44 September at-bats with a 21:9 K:BB.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Drives in two Thursday

    Morel went 1-for-2 with a walk, a double and two RBI in Thursday's win over the Pirates.

    Morel batted ninth but still delivered a big hit, driving in two on his second-inning double, helping the Cubs to a 3-2 victory. The rookie continues to produce solid stats, as he now has a .738 OPS and 41 RBI across 103 games to go along with 14 home runs and 10 stolen bases. Morel could be in for a breakout 2023 campaign if he's able to limit strikeouts and make more consistent contact, as he came into Thursday striking out 32.5 percent of the time this year.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Not part of Tuesday's lineup

    Morel is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Marlins.

    Morel homered and walked in Monday's contest, but that was not enough to earn him a spot in Tuesday's lineup. Morel owns a .590 OPS since the start of September, so even though the Cubs are out of the playoff hunt, he is getting a breather every few days.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Goes deep Monday

    Morel went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Marlins.

    Morel started at shortstop and provided his 14th home run of the season. The rookie also has 10 stolen bases, and his mix of power and speed as well as his ability to play both the infield and outfield is intriguing heading into 2023. Assuming Morel gets regular playing time from Opening Day onward, he could be in line for a true breakout campaign.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Reaches twice, steals base

    Morel went 0-for-3 with two walks and a run scored in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Mets. He also stole a base.

    Morel was busy despite not having any hits, walking and scoring in the first inning, then walking and stealing second base in the ninth. The rookie now has 10 stolen bases this season to go along with 13 home runs across 96 games. Provided he plays a full season in the majors in 2023, Morel could push toward the 15-to-20 range in each category, which would give him some definite fantasy appeal.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Catches breather Tuesday

    Morel is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mets.

    Morel has hit a rough patch at the plate, going just 6-for-44 (.136) over his last 16 games, so he will sit out Tuesday for the third time in six days. David Bote will claim a spot in Tuesday's lineup with Morel opening the contest on the bench.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Doubles, homers Tuesday

    Morel went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

    Morel continues to have a solid rookie season, as he connected for his 13th home run of the season in the sixth inning. He's at nine stolen bases as well, and double figures in both categories would be impressive, especially considering he's only played in 86 games. Morel has seemingly played his way onto the 2023 Opening Day roster for the Cubs, and the 23-year-old could be primed for a breakout campaign if he keeps contributing power and speed.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Takes seat Sunday

    Morel is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers.

    Morel has moved between third base and center field of late and should be locked in as an everyday player for the Cubs, but he'll retreat to the bench after going 0-for-13 with six strikeouts across his past four starts. Zach McKinstry is covering the hot corner Sunday, while Nelson Velazquez gets the starting nod in center field.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Blasts home run Friday

    Morel went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Friday's 8-7 win over the Brewers.

    Morel's sixth-inning homer, his 12th of the season, put the Cubs ahead for good in the high-scoring contest. The rookie also has nine stolen bases this year and a solid .790 OPS. He showed off his versatility by starting at shortstop Friday, though he's also played outfield as well as second and third base. Morel's had a strong debut so far, and he could be primed for a big 2023 campaign assuming he has an Opening Day lineup spot.
