Chicago White Sox 3B Brent Morel (back) said he's healthy this spring after dealing with back problems last season. "A slight injury, it just makes guys look different the way they move around, and for him, he's swinging the bat free and easy," said manager Robin Ventura. "It's different when you get some spikes on and when you're running around and doing stuff. His (issue) is more kind of longevity of being able to stay and play nice and loose like that." With 3B Jeff Keppinger expected to start at third base, Morel will compete with OF Jordan Danks and 1B Lars Anderson for a spot on the bench, with INF Angel Sanchez a favorite for the utility infielder position. Ventura said Morel will see some action at a position other than third this spring.
