MLB ETA Risk Factor OFP Video
2019 High 50 Yes
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 50 Average bat speed; loose wrists; moderate barrel control; minimal load; does not use bottom half; swing is balanced and quiet; ability to recognize spin is present; chases too many pitches out of the zone currently; showing ability to foul off bad pitches; needs to lay off more of these.
Power 30 Below-average raw power; swing is linear and not conducive for in-game power; gap-to-gap hitter.
Baserunning/Speed 50 4.33 home to first; shows more speed in OF; agile; lacks a high-end second gear.
Glove 55 Efficient routes and reads; first step is accurate and instinctive; lacks high-end agility and speed.
Arm 50 Average arm strength; lacks carry from middle depth in CF; accurate throws.

Signed as an international free agent out of the Dominican Republic in 2012 for $188,000. Moreno's value will primarily be dictated on the progression of his hit tool, but he displays a solid approach along with moderate barrel control. The defense is merely solid, but he will be able to stick in CF. The risk is high due to his age and lack of experience against stronger competition.
