Astros third-base prospect Colin Moran scorching in July at Double-A
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/16/15) Astros minor-league third baseman Colin Moran has been tearing up the Texas League with Double-A Corpus Christi lately. Moran is riding a nine-game hit streak, during which he is batting .389 (14 for 36) with a home run, two doubles and seven RBI.
Moran was drafted in the first round (6th overall) by the Marlins in 2013. He was sent to the Astros in the deal that sent Jarred Cosart to the Marlins at last year's MLB trade deadline.

Moran has been on the disabled list since early May because of a fractured jaw he suffered while playing at Double-A.

|(5/4/15) Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said Monday that third baseman Colin Moran would be out four weeks due to a fractured jaw, MLB.com reports.
Moran suffered a nondisplaced jaw fracture last week after being struck in the face by a throw during a slide into second base. He has hit .268/.318/.378 with 17 RBI in 82 at-bats with Double-A Corpus Christi.
Astros 3B prospect Colin Moran sidelined by fractured jaw
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/1/15) Astros third base prospect Colin Moran suffered a non-displaced jaw fracture during a game Thursday night for Double-A Corpus Christi, per MLB.com. Moran suffered the injury as an errant throw struck him in the face as he was sliding into second base.
There is no word yet on how long Moran will be sidelined, but he was placed on the disabled list, according to the Houston Chronicle. The 2013 first-round pick is batting .268 with no home runs, nine doubles and 17 RBI in 20 games.
|2014 summary: Colin Moran started off the season at the Marlins' Advanced Class A affiliate in Jupiter, but a July trade deadline deal moved him to the Astros' organization. Instead of shipping Moran out to the California League, the Astros bumped Moran up to the Double-A Texas League, and he responded by hitting .304 over 28 games for Corpus Christi. Moran batted .296 across the two stops, but he didn't hit for much power, combining for seven home runs and 27 doubles over 117 games.|
Playing time status: Moran may begin the season at Triple-A Oklahoma City, and incumbent third baseman Matt Dominguez is not likely to be a formidable roadblock to an eventual promotion. A hot start by Moran combined with an early slump from Dominguez could pave the way for a midseason callup.
2015 outlook: Perhaps over time, Moran could develop power, but for now, he is a decent contact hitter with a knack for squaring up the ball. Even those skills may not translate immediately to the majors. Only owners in dynasty formats need to concern themselves with Moran on Draft Day.
