Player Outlook
Every year, there is a player whose playoff exploits overshadow his regular season. In 380 regular season plate appearances, Gabriel Moreno swatted seven homers. In 70 postseason trips to the dish, he clubbed four dingers. Perhaps the best approach is evaluating 2024 is combining the two, yielding 11 long balls in 450 plate appearances. In those 70 plate appearances, Moreno continued to hit a preponderance of ground balls, he just happened to drive a cluster of fly balls out of the yard. However, the high ground ball rate, combined with a nine-point jump to a 41.8 percent hard hit rate supports a high BABIP, which is Moreno's primary asset; a couple more homers is a bonus. He did strike out more last season, but his 19.7 percent mark was still below average, especially for a catcher. Moreno's pitch presentation is below average, but he's otherwise outstanding behind the plate, which should result in bell cow level of playing time. Moreno is in play for those favoring to pay for a solid catcher, just don't overpay for four playoff homers.
