Colin Moran to take on Arizona Fall League
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2013) Marlins first-round pick Colin Moran has shown a good eye at the plate in first 21 games of his professional career, but his overall results have not been overly impressive. Despite that, the franchise is not worried about the third baseman's future.
"He can hit," Marlins general manager Michael Hill told MLB.com Saturday. "He's a good hitter. Sound approach."
Moran got a late start to his career as he waited until just before the July 12 deadline to sign. The Marlins want to get him more playing time against top competition this year, and will send him to the Arizona Fall League after the season ends.
Moran is hitting .244/.295/.385 in his first 78 at-bats for Class A Greensboro. He will likely begin next season at Advanced Class A Jupiter.
