Moran was drafted in the first round (6th overall) by the Marlins in 2013. He was sent to the Astros in the deal that sent Jarred Cosart to the Marlins at last year's MLB trade deadline.
Moran has been on the disabled list since early May because of a fractured jaw he suffered while playing at Double-A.
Moran suffered a nondisplaced jaw fracture last week after being struck in the face by a throw during a slide into second base. He has hit .268/.318/.378 with 17 RBI in 82 at-bats with Double-A Corpus Christi.
There is no word yet on how long Moran will be sidelined, but he was placed on the disabled list, according to the Houston Chronicle. The 2013 first-round pick is batting .268 with no home runs, nine doubles and 17 RBI in 20 games.
