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.
