Christopher Rafael Morel plays infield for the Chicago Cubs of Major League Baseball (MLB).
How Old Is Christopher Morel?
Christopher Morel is 22 years old. He was born on June 24, 1999
Christopher Morel is one of the Cubs’ most intriguing prospects. When the Cubs signed Morel as an international free agent in 2015, he was seen as the team’s future third baseman, given Kris Bryant’s versatility.
It left a gap at third base after Bryant’s trade to the Giants, which Morel could easily fill in the near term.
With greater time spent in the outfield this season, he may not be committed to playing third base for the rest of the season.
The Cubs’ system is deeper than you may think, as evidenced by the fact that a once-top-10 prospect currently ranks 20th, despite previously being ranked as high as ninth.
Rafael Morel, Rafael’s younger brother, was also signed by the Cubs a few years after Morel.
The Chicago Cubs have invested considerably in Rafael and Christopher Morel, both of whom potentially have a bright future with the team, by signing them to contracts totaling $850,000 and $800,000, respectively.
Because of an arm injury sustained after a domestic accident, Morel was unable to make his professional debut until 2017, even though he had been signed in 2015.
