Biographical Information[edit]

Jose Moreno has been a minor league manager.

Moreno was 8 for 34 with four walks and two doubles as the #3 catcher for the 1991 Watertown Indians in his brief professional playing career.

According to Moreno's LinkedIn page, he served as a catching instructor in Venezuela in 1996-1997 for the Cleveland Indians organization and was an assistant coach for the Toronto Blue Jays in 1998, also in Venezuela. This could not be confirmed by other sources.

Moreno joined the Seattle Mariners organization in 2001 and managed the VSL Mariners from 2001-2006, the AZL Mariners in 2007 (taking the Arizona League pennant), the Everett AquaSox in 2008. He was scheduled to manager the AZL Mariners again in 2009, but took over the Pulaski Mariners in June when Rob Mummau became a full-time scout for the Mariners. Moreno returned to Everett in 2010 and won his third title in 10 years. He moved up to the High Desert Mavericks in 2011 before returning to Pulaski in 2012. Moreno stepped away from managing for the next four years while serving as the Mariners Latin America Field Coordinator. He returned to managing with the AquaSox in 2017. In 2019, he started his third season as the Everett manager but was suspended by the team on July 9th. Minor league coach Carson Vitale stepped in for him in the interim. The suspension was initially supposed to be for only a week, but on July 18th, he was dismissed for good (by mutual agreement) and a few days later 25-year-old Louis Boyd took over as the team's manager.

In 2020 Moreno moved to the Cincinnati Reds organization. He was slated to manage the AZL Reds before the coronavirus pandemic forced the cancellation of the minor league season. Moreno managed the Dayton Dragons in 2021 and the Chattanooga Lookouts in 2022.

In addition to his work with major league organizations, Moreno has extensive experience with winter league teams.

Moreno led the 2017/2018 Cardenales to the Venezuelan League title. He was unable to defend the next year due to MLB not allowing coaches or players work in Venezuela that season.
