Acquired: Drafted by the Colorado Rockies in the 3rd round of the 2013 amateur draft out of the University of Memphis.

2015 team: The left-handed pitcher split 2015 between the Class-A Advanced Modesto Nuts, and the AA New Britain Rock Cats, just as his teammate Carlos Estevez.

2015 stats: Moll was good in Modesto, and he’s been ever better once he got to New Britain.

The lefty a 0.969 WHIP and 3.35 ERA in Modesto, with 57 strikeouts against just 12 walks and 40 hits in 53.2 innings. Then, in New Britain, he’s logged a 0.805 WHIP and 1.32 ERA in his first 12 games in AA, proving himself to be difficult to square up, having allowed just seven hits in 13.2 innings.

Notes: As tough as it’s been for batters to square up Moll and hit the ball all year, he likely profiles as a decent left-handed relief option that the Colorado Rockies could see in Denver early in 2017. At 5’10”, 185 lbs., he’s not the ideal size for a late-inning power reliever, but there’s a lot he can do as a situational lefty for the Rockies should they choose to use him like that in the bullpen.
