Moran was originally selected by the Reds in the 18th round of the 2011 draft. Moran is still working on his slider and change to compliment his fastball. The main issue for Moran has been command in his Minor League career. He has been a reliever his entire time in the Reds organization, and he has allowed high hit totals at times to go along with those walks. Much of this is to be blamed for his career ERA over four. Moran has made it as high as Triple-A in 2015, but returned to Double-A for the 2016 season.
