Moran, a lanky, deceptive 6-foot-3, 185-pound lefty, has been the key to North Carolina's bullpen the last two years. He leaves hitters at a loss with a funky delivery and command of an 86-88 mph fastball that has good movement. Moran, the nephew of 1985 No. 1 overall pick (and Carolina alum) B.J. Surhoff, has proved durable. His secondary stuff is below-average, and his lack of a consistent breaking ball makes it difficult to see him in the lefty relief role in a big league bullpen.
