RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Moran has underwhelmed since being drafted number-six overall in the 2013 draft by the Marlins, but he turned in his best season as a professional last season. In 96 games with Double-A Corpus Christi, the left-handed hitting third baseman hit .306/.381/.459 with nine home runs and 67 RBI with a career-best 10.3-percent walk rate. It was enough to earn the 23-year-old a promotion to Triple-A Fresno is September, which is where he'll begin his 2016 campaign. A call up to the majors seems out of reach this season, but a hot start with Fresno may warrant some consideration if the Astros lack infield depth due to injuries.

2015

Moran, the sixth overall pick by the Marlins in the 2013 draft, was traded to the Astros at the deadline last season as part of the Jarred Cosart deal. Rather than send him to the California League, Houston felt Double-A would be a better challenge, and he responded by slashing .304/.350/.411 with two home runs and 22 RBI in 28 games with Corpus Christi. Moran's doesn't possess the raw power that you often see with top corner-infield prospects, and rival organizations have complained about his lack of energy and inconsistent approach to the game, but his upside compares to Matt Carpenter or Bill Mueller. A return to Double-A to open 2015 appears likely, with a promotion to Triple-A expected at some point during the season.

2014

The Marlins selected Moran with the sixth overall pick in the 2013 draft and saw glimpses of a strong future at the hot corner in his 42-game debut at Low-A Greensboro following a prolific career at the University of North Carolina. In his first 154 professional at-bats, Moran smacked four home runs and plated 23 RBI while batting .299/.354/.442. The lefty-swinging third baseman is the team's top position prospect, and while he does not posses the raw power of some other corner-infield prospects, Moran makes solid contact and projects to be an above average hitter as well as strong defender for Miami down the line.
