Morris attends the same high school in the U.S. Virgin Islands that outfielder Jabari Blash graduated from before heading to Miami-Dade CC. Morris has a live arm that generates a fastball that was 87-89 mph an touched 90-91 in October at the World Wood Bat Championships. He was a little erratic then and showed he certainly needs some polish--not surprising for a high school arm from the Virgin Islands. He also threw a slurvy breaking ball in the low 70s and a mid-70s changeup. According to a Virgin Islands newspaper he was up to 94 this spring.
