If Morel continues to be terrible or gets injured, then Beckham moves to third and Escobar/Bridge platoon at second? I can't say I'm thrilled by that scenario.
That's why we need to stick with Morel- we don't really have any other options within the organization- moving Beckham back to 3rd isn't one of them.

I'm willing to give Morel a little more time to settle in this year- I do like the way he can get a bunt down in the 2 slot- and with a little time that could be a good place for him- see more fastballs, focus on moving runners along, etc.
Players that are an important part of the rebuild:
Anderson, Giolito, Lopez, Moncada
