The Blue Jays thought that they had found a diamond in the rough when they signed Gabriel Moreno out of Venezuela for a quarter of a million dollars in 2016. With his signing not getting much attention, the team had the luxury of taking their time and letting him develop. https://t.co/yVEju5ZdaV
Fangraphs Blue Jays Prospects: Fangraphs today published their top 37 prospects for the Blue Jays. To no ones surprise Gabriel Moreno tops the list, followed by Orelvis Martinez.

- Gabriel Moreno's lofty potential
- The status of Nate Pearson and Jordan Groshans
- A potential steal in the 2021 draft
And much more.
The impending arrival of blue-chip prospect Gabriel Moreno means keeping Danny Jansen, Alejandro Kirk, and Reese McGuire seems like overkill for the Blue Jays.
@NickAshbourne explores some realistic trade hypotheticals the team could consider.
@Baseball_Jenn and I are joined by @NickAshbourne to discuss a variety of topics on the latest @LockedOnJays:

Here I leave ours to consider 👇. https://t.co/zsP7GcglJ2
The Toronto #BlueJays are on the verge of having a MAMMOTH of a team. I'm a huge Gabriel Moreno fan & believe that if they can get above average performances from him & one other behind the plate, it improves their chances of reaching 100 wins significantly.
Fun episode of Blue Jays Happy Hour today as offseason things continue to actually happen and we're joined by @SamDykstraMiLB who has excellent insight on Gabriel Moreno's AZFL performance https://t.co/jblDy5x2ga
Gabriel Moreno's stock is rising as a prospect in the Blue Jays system. He's ranked in the top 10 prospects in #MLB, and he's been able to hit at every level. @ScottyMitchTSN discusses Moreno's potential and when he thinks he'll be able to make the jump: https://t.co/qnvZBOGymL https://t.co/nVWyW1oi4p
Ladies and gentlemen... this week's Blue Jays Happy Hour! In it, @NickAshbourne and I talk about Ray's Cy Young win, Vlad's MVP case, the Berríos extension, and are joined by @SamDykstraMiLB of @MLBPipeline who has been watching Gabriel Moreno in the AFL! https://t.co/PIr3byRSxl
Gabriel Moreno’s fall league production, paired with appearances at third base that hint at the Blue Jays’ desire to get him into the lineup, has fans wondering about what kind of contribution he could make in 2022. (@NickAshbourne)
@Baseball_Jenn and I break down the Jose Berrios signing with the Blue Jays.
Then @keithlaw of @TheAthleticMLB joins us to chat all things prospects, including Toronto's Gabriel Moreno.
The five most impressive players I saw at the #arizonafallleague were:
Gabriel Moreno (C/Toronto)
JJ Bleday (OF/Miami)
Bryson Stott (SS/Phila)
Brett Baty (3B/NYM)
Bobby Miller (SP/LAD)
I went in thinking Gabby is a future star and I walked away thinking that he could be more.
If Gabriel Moreno’s bat is what everyone says it is, you move him to 3B this offseason.
Joe Mauer was a shell of his former self by 30. Buster Posey retired at 34.
The Blue Jays have a hole to fill at 3B. Do the Bryce Harper/Josh Donaldson move and keep that bat on the field.
#BlueJays number one prospect and Arizona Fall League sensation Gabriel Moreno stepping up to the plate for the Herd during last season’s final stretch. He’ll be playing in the Arizona Fall League Fall Stars Game at 7 pm ET tonight on the MLB Network. #Bisons https://t.co/E6ZGEB1igg

Some rare televised MILB/MLB baseball until spring, 7pm on MLBNetwork
Like he has throughout his career, Gabriel Moreno just keeps hitting in the AFL.
The No. 1 Blue Jays prospect notched three hits and three RBIs in Mesa's high-scoring victory: https://t.co/LPbdQF60o4 https://t.co/FXT3sIXRhc
The #BlueJays have checked with the #Marlins on their starting pitchers; Pablo López and Elieser Hernández are Miami’s most available arms. Toronto’s Alejandro Kirk is likely to be part of talks due to the emergence of Jays catching prospect Gabriel Moreno. @MLBNetwork @FAN590
@Baseball_Jenn and I are pleased to welcome @SInow Blue Jays writer @MitchBannon to @LockedOnJays.
We discuss the 2021 season, off-season expectations and Mitch’s thoughts on Gabriel Moreno.
MLB announces the rosters for the AFL Fall Stars Game.
Pirates 2B Nick Gonzales, Phillies SSS Bryson Stott, Dodgers RHP Bobby Miller lead the West. Blue Jays C Gabriel Moreno, Red Sox 1B Triston Casas, Mets 3B Brett Baty lead the East. https://t.co/G6aB1NneSI
When I think of the Blue Jays' Gabriel Moreno, I think of estimated barrels for minor league hitters developed by @PhilOfSports
Moreno appeared on his 2019 Low-A leaderboard.
Peep some other notable names:
Rocchio in short-season
Baddoo in High-A
The Toronto Blue Jays have a big offseason ahead of them. 😬
@jonmorosi joined The FAN Drive Time w/ @SportsnetBen to discuss the future of Marcus Semien and Robbie Ray, Gabriel Moreno's recent play and more!
Taking a peak at Steamer, Blue Jays catchers:
Kirk - 124 wRC+ (2nd best hitting catcher in baseball)
Danny Jansen - 103 wRC+ (16th best catcher in baseball - just ahead of Buster Posey)
Gabriel Moreno - 98 wRC+ (26th best)
My guess - Jansen and Kirk are roughly 50-50 in 2022
I missed this during the season, but Blue Jays catcher Gabriel Moreno started—and completed—a game at third base for Double-A New Hampshire.
He worked at 3B while rehabbing this summer and is continuing that work in the AFL.
@ShiDavidi's full report 👇
Blue Jays top prospect Gabriel Moreno is going to be a stud at the big league level
Another bat for that lineup in the future and he’s dynamic behind the dish
#WeAreBlueJays | #MLB
Blue Jays No. 1 prospect, catcher Gabriel Moreno, is CRUSHING the Arizona Fall League!
He’s reached base multiple times in all five games so far:
9-for-19, 3 2B, HR, 3 RBI, 6 BB, 1.366 OPS 🔥
Impressive day by Gabriel Moreno who went 3/4 with a single,double and home run to CF. He’s currently hitting .500 in the AFL. 55+ hit and 55+ power for the 21 year old catcher. Loves to be in charge behind the plate and control the game. Blue jays have a legit prospect in Moreno

Gabriel Moreno skyrocketed up the Top 100 Prospects list this year.
@KeeganMatheson looks at his ascent, the turnover in the @BlueJays' Top 30 list, who stood out in 2021 and what it means for Toronto moving forward: https://t.co/brXanvbGc8 https://t.co/g8Ynn9AIY2
@MiamiMarlins_UK @fishstripes A name I would watch at C is Gabriel Moreno. We are on the same AFL team as Toronto so will get a close look at him. Wont be an easy get but maybe we see a SP prospect for him type deal. Max Meyer for Moreno with minor things included?
Blue Jays C Gabriel Moreno leads a Mesa roster filled with former Top 100 prospects trying to re-boost their stock, including Marlins OF JJ Bleday, A's OF Austin Beck and Orioles OF Yusniel Diaz.
@JPGreen10 @AndrewStoeten It would take 2 of Nate Pearson, Jordan Groshans, Gabriel Moreno, Orelvis Martinez, Alejandro Kirk + Cavan Biggio. I'd do it. Blue Jays are entering a large contending window, so gtfo of here with future. Future is now.....wanna bet?
@Fkskks2 @Pando_Juice @MeekPhill_ The Blue Jays signed:
Gabriel Moreno for 25k in 2016
Alejandro Kirk for 30k in 2016
Otto Lopez signed for 60k in 2016.
Gurriel also signed in 2016
That's just one period. I can go on if you want.

The jays have a new top prospect and he’s not a pitcher.
Gabriel Moreno. A 21 year old catcher currently playing for the fisher cats in double-A.
@MattEddyBA Gabriel Moreno (C) Blue Jays, Kevin Smith (1B/SS/3B) Blue Jays, Triston Casas (1B) Boston, Brandon Marsh (OF) LAA - one of these would be my go-to. Considering position eligibility, I'd go with Moreno.
@JWanMakeMula @CelticsHateMe @JeffAlchadsLab Ranked 10th
The Skinny: RHP Alex Manoah has graduated, but C Gabriel Moreno and SS Orelvis Martinez provide a next wave of big bats to follow up the recent arrivals in Toronto of 1B Vladimir Guerrero Jr., SS Bo Bichette and LF Lourdes Gurriel Jr.

Blue Jays Prospects that Deserve or Most likely soon get moved up a level in minors:
1) Gabriel Moreno (AA to AAA, currently destroying AA)
2) Orelvis Martinez (A to High A, almost RBI a game through 64GP)
3) Kevin Smith (AAA to MLB, 53 RBIs in 65GP & 13 Steals, ready 4 the show)
My Picks For Top Blue Jays Prospects (1/2)
1) Gabriel Moreno (Elite across the board for power, especially his 45 RBI in 32GP & .373 Avg in AA, is only 21)
2) Orelvis Martinez (19 yrs old & lighting up Single A, 63 RBI in 64GP)
3) Jordan Groshans (very solid numbers at AA @ 21)
