Former Glens Falls Golden Eagles relief pitcher Brian Moran (2007) recently completed a successful season in the prestigious Arizona Fall League as a member of the Peoria Javelinas. The Arizona Fall League is a prospect-driven league comprised of six teams and it is operated by Major League Baseball. Rosters of the six AFL teams are made up of mostly Double-A and Triple-A players assigned by Major League clubs. The league runs from early October through mid-November.

Moran, a Seattle Mariners farm hand, made 11 appearances for Peoria. He went 1-0 with one save and a 1.32 earned run average. Moran struck out 11 and walked four in 13.2 innings. The Rye, N.Y., native tied for the team lead in games pitched and he was second on the side in earned run average. Moran’s six games finished tied for second best on the team.

The Peoria reliever did not allow a run, earned or unearned, in his final 10 games and he did not give up a hit in five of his 11 overall appearances.

Moran was a seventh-round draft pick of the Seattle Mariners in 2009 out of the University of North Carolina. The 6-foot-3 southpaw spent all of 2011 with the Double-A Jackson (Tenn.) Generals of the Southern League. As a reliever for the Generals, Moran pitched a career-high 45 games and he went 5-3 with 63 strikeouts in 60.2 innings pitched. In less than three full professional seasons, the former Golden Eagle has risen from the rookie-level Appalachian League to Double-A.

Brian was a New York Collegiate Baseball League all-star in 2007. He went 5-3 with two saves and a 1.52 earned run average over 10 appearances. Moran started seven games and went the distance four times. He struck out 49 and walked seven in 65.2 innings. The 2007 Golden Eagles set a franchise record with a 34-6 regular season record.
