Giants' Reyes Moronta: Added to 40-man roster

Moronta was added to the Giants' 40-man roster Friday, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

Moronta overpowered High-A hitters in 2016 with a high-90s fastball and a late-breaking slider, striking out 93 batters in just 59 innings. He also took a step forward with his control, trimming his walk rate to 3.1 BB/9, down from 4.3 in 2015. The right-hander figures to spend most of 2017 in the minors but could get a look with the big club late in the year.
