Profile: Morales improved his stock this offseason when he signed with Toronto. The 33-year-old slugger is coming off his best power performance (30 homers and a .204 isolated slugging percentage) since 2009. He’ll go from a home stadium with a 93 home run park factor to one with a 106 park factor. There are currently few signs of him aging considering most of his 2016 stats were near his career marks. For example, his career triple slash line is .263/.327/.468 while his 2016 marks came in at .273/.331/.465. A couple warning signs do exist, however. The first is a jump in strikeout rate from 16% in 2015 to 19% last year. His home runs could also drop after posting a 19% home run per fly ball rate last season, a five-year high. I would expect some regression to around 15%, which will would likely mean about 25 home runs. The final thing affecting his value is where he’ll bat in the Jays lineup. I could see him batting 5th or 6th, where he will likely get a decent number of RBI chances -- even if his runs scored total suffers. (Jeff Zimmerman)

The Quick Opinion: Morales now hits in a great home park for home runs, but some power regression should be coming. The two offsetting factors should keep his 2017 production close to his 2016 levels.
