2018 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Julio Morban in 2018. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.

Morban was reinstated from the restricted list Thursday and transferred to Double-A Jackson, the Tacoma News Tribune's Bob Dutton reports.
ANALYSIS
He missed the last two months due to personal reasons, and will now be sent from Triple-A to Double-A. Morbin hit 17 home runs at High-A in 2012, but since then he has done little of note and should be considered a fringe prospect at best.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2015
2014
Health and plate discipline are holding Morban back, and neither of those took significant steps forward in 2014. After suffering a season-ending broken leg in 2013, Morban needed an extra two months at extended spring training last season before he was activated to Double-A Jackson. He played in only 59 games between Double-A and Triple-A after his season began in late June. Strikeouts continue to be a problem, as he whiffed in 28.3% of his plate appearances between the two stops while walking at an eight percent clip. If Morban stays healthy, he could see a callup this season, but it's hard to expect success with his strike zone issues.
A broken leg ended Morban's season in August last year, but not before he proved that his gaudy 2012 stats weren't merely the product of the hitter-friendly California league. At Double-A Jackson last season, Morban slugged 32 extra-base hits, including seven home runs. He has a quick bat and can hit to all fields. He must overcome two big problems, however, to keep advancing – health and plate discipline. He's struggled with injuries through his minor-league career, and last year his strikeout rate spiked to 29.1%. Still just 22, time is on his side. The Mariners signed him out of the Dominican Republic for $1.1 million in 2008 and last year added him to the 40-man roster, so obviously they have a lot invested him and think highly of his future.
