BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Moreno got a late start on his professional career, signing as a 20-year-old out of Venezuela in 2006. However, he has put up phenomenal numbers as a reliever in his four professional seasons, the first two of which were spent in the Venezuelan Summer League. Moreno throws a 97-mph fastball, an 85-mph slider, and utilizes a three-quarters delivery that is especially tough on right-handers. He did struggle following a late-season promotion to Double-A last season, and it will be interesting to see whether that was merely a blip or an indication that higher-level hitters can handle his stuff such a dominant track record.
