Brewers prospect Hunter Morris breaks arm


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2014) Brewers minor league first baseman Hunter Morris will be sidelined for six weeks with a broken arm.

The 25-year-old Morris has enjoyed a solid season at Triple-A Nashville with a stat line of .274/.316/.444.


Brewers send four to Nashville


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) The Brewers optioned infielders Hunter Morris and Jason Rogers as well as pitchers Jimmy Nelson and Ariel Pena to Triple-A Nashville Monday, the team announced.

Morris went 2 for 16 in nine games this spring, while Rogers went 4 of 18 with three walks in nine games. Nelson surrendered two earned runs in three innings while striking out four in two appearances. Pena allowed two unearned runs in three hitless innings while striking out two and walking five.


Defense going to be key in Brewers' 1B competiton


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2014) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke hinted Mark Reynolds and Lyle Overbay could have "an edge" over Juan Francisco and Hunter Morris at first base because of their defensive skills in the field, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"Obviously, everybody isn't going to make our team among the first basemen," Roenicke said. "With Overbay and Reynolds, we know from their history what we're getting from them. We know that Juan Francisco has power and is going to hit a lot of home runs if he's the guy. The other guys, they are younger. Hunter Morris struggled a little bit in Triple-A last year but figured it out in the second half, which I really liked. So, we'll see.

"If one of the younger guys steps up, then things change. But going into spring training we do feel we have a veteran presence there. Defense also matters to me a lot there. If we think we're better off defensively with the two veterans, that gives them an edge."


Brewers might use internal options to fill first-base void


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2014) With spring training getting closer and the free-agent market at first base drying up, the Brewers might have to use internal options to fill the void at first base, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The options would include Juan Francisco and prospect Hunter Morris.

"We did get 21 homers and knocked in 86 runs from that position (in 2013)," said general manager Doug Melvin, who added the .629 OPS of his first basemen was historically low. "But the defense has to improve and you'd like to see a better on-base percentage (than .259).

"We've gone through the list. There just aren't available guys. Texas, at this point, is not willing to talk about (Mitch) Moreland. Seattle is not interested in moving their guys. So, there aren't a lot of choices.

"The Packers went 20 years between Bart Starr and finding Brett Favre. Hopefully, we don't go 20 years trying to find a replacement for Prince Fielder (who left after the 2011 season as a free agent). It might be a situation where we mix and match, or trial and error."


Brewers add four to 40-man roster


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2013) The Brewers added first baseman Hunter Morris, outfielder Jason Rogers and pitchers Brooks Hall and Kevin Shackelford to the 40-man roster Wednesday.

Morris hit .247/.310/.457 with 24 home runs and 73 RBI in 497 at-bats with Triple-A Nashville last season. Rogers hit .270/.346/.468 with 22 home runs and 87 RBI in 481 at-bats with Double-A Huntsville.

Hall went 4-7 with a 3.40 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 79:41 K:BB ratio in 119 innings between high Class A Brevard County and Double-A Huntsville. Shackelford went 2-4 with a 3.08 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 48:11 K:BB ratio in 61 1/3 innings between high Class A Brevard County and Double-A Huntsville.


Should we anticipate a Hunter Morris call-up?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/17/2013) With the Brewers' playoff hopes all but dashed and Corey Hart (knee) out for the season, you have to think Milwaukee is likely to call up first-base prospect Hunter Morris in the coming weeks.

Morris is batting just .238 in 89 games for Triple-A Nashville, but he is slugging .486 and has 19 home runs. He also has committed just four errors and owns a .994 fielding percentage.

General manager Doug Melvin said in mid-June Morris wasn't ready for the majors and needed more "consistency" before being promoted. He really hasn't achieved that. He hit .311 in May, but he hit .212 in April, .212 in June and is batting .228 in July, so he's had more lulls than hot streaks.

Though, once the Brewers become sellers, which is apparent, what's the harm of getting Morris at-bats in the majors? The worst that could happen is that he doesn't perform much better than he has at Triple-A, but the upside is that he thrives and carries that confidence into next spring.


Hunter Morris placed on 7-day DL with concussion


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2013) The Brewers have placed minor league first baseman Hunter Morris on the 7-day minor league disabled list with a concussion, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports.

The club called the concussion "mild" and said they expect Morris back after the seven days expire. Although the classification of any concussion as "mild" is questionable, it doesn't sound like this injury will have long-term effects for the club's top hitting prospect.

Morris is off to a slow start, as he is hitting just .220/.303/.390 with four home runs in 32 games.


Brewers ship Hunter Morris to minors camp


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2013) The Brewers reassigned first base prospect Hunter Morris to minor-league camp Wednesday. Morris, who was in competition for the starting first base job with Corey Hart (knee) sidelined, hit .120 (3 for 25) with a double, a homer and an RBI in 11 spring games. "When you look at a guy coming from Double-A, if he just goes off in the spring you may think, 'You know something? Maybe he can handle the atmosphere and all that,'" manager Ron Roenicke said, per MLB.com. "He was definitely a name that we thought of, but it's not like I was thinking he was going to be our guy. Things like that do happen, but he needs to go to Triple-A and continue to improve on his defense, and then have another big year offensively."

Morris brushes aside slow start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2013) MLB.com reports Brewers first base prospect Hunter Morris isn't concerned he has begun spring training hitless in his first nine at-bats, which includes two strikeouts. “I’ve always kind of started slow and it takes me some time to get my timing, and then one day it clicks and it’s there for good,” Morris said. “Heck, last year I started the regular season 0-for-14, and that turned out pretty good.” Hunter won the Southern League (Double-A) MVP award after batting .303 with 28 homers and 113 RBI in 136 games. “It is always a struggle the first few days, first few at-bats, but I actually feel like I’m seeing the ball well,” Morris said. "I feel like I’m close.”

Hunter on the prowl for Brewers


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2013) With the Brewers scrambling to find a first baseman for opening day (Corey Hart and Mat Gamel are out with injuries), Brewers first base prospect Hunter Morris earned an extended look during Milwaukee's Cactus League opener against Oakland on Saturday. Morris served as the designated hitter and went 0 for 3 with a strikeout while slotting ninth in the batting order. He was the only Brewers player to log all nine innings. "You have both [views]," manager Ron Roenicke told MLB.com about Morris' readiness. "That's why we need to see him."

Morris becomes team's 'Plan C'


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2013) With Mat Gamel out for the upcoming season after re-tearing the ACL in his right knee last Saturday, Brewers prospect Hunter Morris could become the leading candidate to open the season as the team's starting first baseman. Gamel was expected to serve as the replacement for Corey Hart at first while Hart recovers from knee surgery, but that duty could now fall on Morris. "Clearly it's Plan C, and the good news is there are enough individuals in camp that can and have played first base," assistant general manager Gord Ash told MLB.com on Monday. "Of course, one of our players of the year last year, Hunter Morris, had a great year in Double-A, and he'll be a strong candidate."

Brewers change tune on Morris?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2013) The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said the team is exploring options for a backup first baseman while starter Corey Hart recovers from knee surgery. Mat Gamel will take over as the team's starting first baseman and the team would prefer for his backup to have major-league experience, but Roenicke indicated prospect Hunter Morris could be a candidate as well. "Morris is certainly going to be a guy we're going to look at quite a bit," Roenicke said.

Morris not an MLB option yet


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2013) The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Brewers manager Ron Roenicke is formulating a plan for first base while Corey Hart goes for a second opinion on his injured knee. However, one of those plans doesn't appear to involve prospect Hunter Morris. "Hunter is a guy, with the year he had last year, we hope turns into a great player," Roenicke said during a radio interview. "But it’s a big jump from Double-A, expecting a guy to go to the big leagues."
