Moran was released by the Marlins on Friday, Anderson Pickard of MLB Daily Dish reports.
Moran was cast off the 40-man roster Wednesday, and he'll now head for the open market after the Marlins requested unconditional release waivers on the southpaw.
Moran was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Wednesday.
Moran made his major-league debut in 2019, making 10 appearances and posting a 4.26 ERA over 6.1 innings. The 31-year-old has been successful at the Triple-A level, where he posted a 3.15 ERA and 1.18 WHIP over 60 innings last year. Left-hander Stephen Tarpley was added to the 40-man roster in a corresponding move.
Moran had his contract selected from Triple-A New Orleans on Tuesday.
Moran is in line to make his major-league debut after posting a 3.15 ERA and 1.18 WHIP with a 77:26 K:BB over 60 innings out of the bullpen this season with New Orleans.
Moran signed a minor-league contract which includes a spring-training invitation with Miami on Monday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
The 30-year-old lefty has yet to reach the majors in his 10-year professional career. In parts of four seasons at the Triple-A level, Moran has a 3.93 ERA, an 11.5 K/9 and a 2.9 BB/9.
Moran agreed to a minor-league contract with the Dodgers.
After missing the entire 2014 season rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, Moran appears to have recovered tremendously. He had a stellar season at Double-A Tulsa, earning a 1.89 ERA to go with 27 strikeouts across 19 innings. The 29-year-old will likely begin next year at Triple-A Oklahoma City following his dominant year out of the bullpen.
The Angels optioned pitchers Dane De La Rosa and pitcher Matt Shoemaker to Triple-A Salt Lake Sunday. They also recalled pitcher Jose Alvarez and selected the contract of pitcher Yoslan Herrera.
To make room on the 40-man roster for Herrera, the Angels moved pitcher Brian Moran (elbow) to the 60-day disabled list.
Angels pitcher Brian Moran will undergo Tommy John surgery, MLB.com reports.
A Rule 5 pick, Moran opened the season on the disabled list due to left elbow inflammation. The surgery will keep him out for the entire 2014 season.
Angels pitcher Brian Moran is set to be re-evaluated Saturday as he continues to recover from left elbow inflammation, according to MLB.com. Moran has not pitched since the middle of March as a result of the injury, but could be cleared to throw off a mound if his examination turns up no issues.
The Angels officially placed pitchers Dane De La Rosa (forearm), Ryan Brasier (forearm), Sean Burnett (forearm) and Brian Moran (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday. All four moves were retroactive to March 21, according to the Orange County Register.
Angels pitchers Sean Burnett and Brian Moran are expected to begin the season on the disabled list, MLB.com reports.
Burnett is recovering from August forearm surgery. Moran is battling elbow inflammation.
Angels left-hander Brian Moran will open the season on the disabled list with elbow soreness. The rookie was considered a possibility to land a spot in the bullpen coming into spring training, but pitched just 2 2/3 innings.
Angels pitcher Brian Moran hasn't pitched for seven days due to tenderness in his elbow, MLB.com reports.
Moran's injury isn't considered serious, and he could still be an option for the opening-day bullpen. He has allowed one earned run in 2 2/3 innings this spring.
The Blue Jays selected reliever Brian Moran from the Mariners organization in the Rule 5 draft Thursday and then traded him to the Angels for $244,000 of international slot money. Moran had a 3.45 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 12.2 strikeouts per nine innings in 44 appearances at Triple-A Tacoma last year.
"He's got a history of missing bats, particularly with left-handed hitters," Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto told MLB.com. "Not an overpowering guy. It's more in the mid- to upper-80s velocity, with tremendous angle, high-end deception; got a good breaking ball that he can throw for a strike and miss a bat with. I guess from a scouting perspective, he makes up a lot of ground on his way to home plate. He's about 6-3, but he strides as if he were 6-8, and the fastball tends to play firmer than it looks on the gun."
