Frankin M. Morales (born January 24, 1986, in San Juan de los Morros, Venezuela) is a starting pitcher for the Colorado Rockies of Major League Baseball. A power-throwing left-hander, Morales is seen as one of the leading prospects in the Rockies farm system. He has a very good fastball, but his control is still developing.

He made his Major League debut on August 18, 2007, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He pitched 5 1/3 innings, gave up one run, but got a no-decision.

In 2007, Morales was selected to the All-Star Futures Game at AT&T Park in San Francisco.

2008

On April 29, 2008, Morales was optioned to the Colorado Rockies Triple-A affiliate Colorado Springs Sky Sox in response to sub-par performance during the early 2008 Major League season.

In spring training in 2009, Morales led all pitchers in pickoffs, with 5, in 28 innings.[1].
