Blue Jays Top Prospect Gets Long Awaited Call To The Majors

This is the prospect that fans of the Toronto Blue Jays have been waiting for a couple of years to see. Finally, after tearing it up in the minors, catcher Gabriel Moreno has gotten the call to The Show.'s Keegan Matheson is reporting that Moreno will be activated sometime during this weekend's 3-game series against the Detroit Tigers. The move comes after the Jays lost starting catcher Danny Jansen for some time with a fractured finger. 

The 22-year-old Moreno is the overall No. 4 prospect in baseball. He's batting .323 at Triple-A Buffalo with a .783 OPS, which is only part of the story. In the month of May, he hit .380 with a .922 OPS. Throughout his five years in the minors, Moreno has a .310 average and an .845 OPS with 25 home runs and 17 stolen bases in 226 games.

On the defensive side of the ball, he's extremely talented as well, with a strong throwing arm and constantly improving game-calling. 

There's no telling if this is just a short-term call up until Jansen is back, but in the meantime, the Jays and their fans will just enjoy the look at their new phenom.
