Morales was above all a proven hitter in two seasons, with Toronto only having 30 games in the first place. He rebounded after a weak year at the record in 2017, beating 211 starts in 471 record appearances in the year &18.29 / .331 / .438.

Lopez, 22, cut 0.239 / 293/402 with 10 home runs in 84 games Last season for Class A Beloit, time was measured at second, third and third. The A & # 39; s unsubscribed him from Nicaragua in 2014.
