Bio: Moran will be on the mound for the Pippins this summer. The sophomore who transferred from Saint Mary’s last season has been phenomenal with Diablo Valley College this year.
Moran was recently named Northern California and Big 8 Conference Pitcher of the Week after allowing just two hits over a nine-inning stretch in March. The California native has a 3.60 ERA for the Vikings and 47 strikeouts in nine appearances.
“What I like about Diego is that he has a chip on his shoulder and something to play for,” says Krustangel. “Guys in the summer that are hungry and trying to find their next home are gonna give you all they got.”
Out of Arcadia High School, Moran was second-team All-State with a 2.32 ERA, a .512 batting average, and 39 RBI. He also has 22 at-bats with the Vikings this season.
