2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: The Twins used their seventh-round pick in 2015 on lefty Jovani Moran from Carlos Beltran Academy in Puerto Rico. Four rounds later, the Twins added his high school catcher Kerby Camacho. Moran is 6-1 and a lanky 170 pounds. He has electric stuff, though he is very raw. He does have the makings of three pretty good pitches. He doesn’t throw real hard yet. He sits in the mid-to-upper 80s with a fastball that has touched 91. He has a changeup in the upper 70s that moves in on a lefty. He has an improving breaking ball as well. He is a good athlete. He gets a lot of movement on his pitches which can cause some control issues at times.
