August 18, 2020
Moran was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with right knee patella tendinitis.
ANALYSIS
Moran had struggled over his past two relief appearances as he allowed three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out one over one-third of an inning. The injury could help provide an explanation for his poor performance. It's unclear how long the southpaw will be sidelined as a result.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

2015 Fantasy Outlook
Moran was traded to the Angels for an international bonus slot after being a Rule 5 selection by the Blue Jays in 2013. Initially expected to be little more than bullpen depth, Moran emerged as a candidate to begin the season as a lefty specialist after allowing one run in four appearances in Cactus League play. Unfortunately for Moran, his chance to break into the major leagues was put on hold, as he developed elbow soreness in late March which eventually led to Tommy John surgery in April. Moran was returned to the Mariners, the team that selected him in the seventh round of the 2009 draft, but there has been no word on when he may be able to return from the procedure. Moran could potentially see time in the bullpen if he is able to pitch this season, after tallying a 3.45 ERA in 62.2 innings at Triple-A Tacoma in 2013.
