2019 Fantasy Outlook
After rocketing up the organizational ladder in 2017, Moronta had a breakout season with the Giants in 2018. He barely made the Opening Day roster, but the right-hander came out of the gate hot, holding the opposition scoreless in his first seven appearances and not letting his ERA get north of 2.00 until mid-June. Free passes continued to hurt him, as he walked over a batter every two innings even during his good stretch to start the season, but he still finished with a 2.49 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 79:37 K:BB in 65 innings. The 25-year-old’s 3.28 FIP and 6.6% HR/FB suggest some regression is on the way, and there are a few other options to close in San Francisco’s bullpen. Even so, Moronta has the strikeout ability to warrant consideration in deeper leagues, and the potential is there for him to close down the road. Read Past Outlooks

Continues breakout season
PSan Francisco Giants
August 10, 2018
Moronta fired a clean inning with a strikeout in Thursday's loss to the Pirates.
ANALYSIS
Not a whole lot went right for the Giants' bullpen Thursday, but Moronta was one of the few bright spots. The 25-year-old rookie now owns a 1.72 ERA and 10.5 K/9 through 52.1 innings after earning a spot in the bullpen this spring. Moronta continues to skate by with a lofty walk rate (5.0 BB/9), but his mid to high-90s fastball and an ability to limit homers (0.3 HR/9) have helped offset his erratic pitching style.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Moronta advanced three levels in 2017 despite dealing with a shoulder muscle issue during the summer months, which speaks to his notable talent. After finishing the 2016 season at High-A, the right-hander began last year at Double-A Richmond, progressed to Triple-A Sacramento in July and then made his big-league debut in September. Moronta has impressive stuff, with a fastball that averages over 95 mph and a good, sweeping slider, but he needs to harness his control to take the next step. His walk rates have been above 4.0 BB/9 at virtually every stop above rookie ball. If he can improve even marginally in that regard this season, Moronta should be able to carve out a prominent role in the Giants' bullpen.
