TTM Success: Diego Moreno
His best outing was on July 28, in relief of Chris Capuano. The Rangers put up 5 runs on Capuano in 2/3 of an inning, as he didn't make it out of the first. Moreno came in and fired 5.1 innings of relief, allowing no hits, one walk, and striking out 5. Oh, and he got the win because the Yankees scored 11 in the 2nd inning and 21 for the game. The Rangers wouldn't score again, let alone get another hit. Man, baseball can be weird.
Moreno looked electric in that outing. He was actually acquired by the Yankees in the lopsided Francisco Cervelli trade with the Pirates.
He signed this card for me created via the Rookies app. I definitely didn't read "Diego Moreno" based on what his signature looks like, but I searched for other signed items and it definitely holds up. He must have some additional surnames he includes.
Regardless, cool success, and I hope to see Moreno back in the Bronx again this year.
