Moreland might be drafted as a first baseman, where plus raw power is his best asset. Because he's limited defensively and has an uppercut swing that's full of holes, he has received more interest as a pitcher. His ceiling on the mound is also modest, but he has an aggressive approach and comes right after hitters with an 86-90 mph fastball and a curveball that has good spin.
