Sherman: RHP Diego Moreno included in the Burnett deal

Joel Sherman reports that RHP Diego Moreno is one of the Pirates prospects in the deal.

Moreno is a reliever with pretty good strikeout numbers. He’s not highly touted, and I haven’t been able to find a ton of information about him, but he does seem to have a big fastball. One site claims that he regularly reached 97 mph with his four-seamer, and compliments it with a slider and a 3/4 arm angle.

Can’t expect to get huge prospects in this deal, but there does seem to be something to like about Moreno.
