Moronta was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday and will be included on the Giants' Opening Day roster, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The Giants placed Mark Melancon (elbow) on the disabled list, so they needed another live arm to open the season. Moronta has a huge fastball but often doesn't know where it's going. He has the potential to someday develop into a late-inning arm, but will be limited to low-leverage situations initially.
