7/21: Morejon makes MLB debut

Morejon had a long track record of success as an amateur playing for various Cuban national teams before defecting in 2015 and signing with the Padres for a franchise-record $11 million the day after he was declared a free agent. He made an impressive stateside debut the next year, then took a big step forward in 2018 with a dominant first half at Class A Advanced Lake Elsinore that earned him All-Star honors in the California League. Morejon made only two starts during the second half, though, as the left-hander missed time due to flexor soreness and then triceps discomfort.

Morejon impresses with a combination of stuff and polish, both of which he made strides with last season. He's physically strong, with an athletic and repeatable delivery that gives him feel for locating a fastball that sits at 93-96 mph and scrapes higher. He complements his fastball with both a knuckle-changeup and a standard changeup, and both versions of the pitch receive at least above-average grades from evaluators. His curveball has improved as he's learned to better repeat his arm slot and could be a legitimate out pitch for him with further refinement.

Though his delivery requires some cleaning up and he faces some concerns about his durability because he's already physically mature, Morejon has shown the makings of becoming at least a mid-rotation starter, perhaps more if he can develop better control and command.
