Gabriel Jose Moreno is a Venezuelan professional baseball catcher for the Toronto Blue Jays of Major League Baseball.

He is considered the top prospect in the Blue Jays organization by MLB, and fourth overall on the 2022 Top 100 MLB prospects list.

The Blue Jays signed Moreno for only $25,000 out of Venezuela in August 2016, and he has recently blossomed into one of the game’s most promising catching prospects.

He first got onto external scouts’ radars when he hit .413 over a 23-game span in the Gulf Coast League, prompting a push off the complex in his age-18 season.

He followed that up with a strong showing at Class A Lansing in 2019 and was a standout at the alternate training site a year later.

His biggest breakout came last summer when he hit .373/.441/.651 with eight homers in 32 games at Double-A New Hampshire before a fractured left thumb cut that short. He returned in time for the Arizona Fall League

Moreno has made promising developments behind the plate as well. An infielder at the time of signing, the 22-year-old puts his athleticism to use with blocking, receiving and throwing. He has an above-average arm with a quick release, capable of controlling the running game as he did with a 40 percent caught-stealing rate last year.
