A free agent signee by the Astros in 1983, the Panamanian played eight seasons with the Pirates where he was often near the top of the league in stolen bases but was also dubbed "Omar the Outmaker" by critics alarmed at his low on-base percentage for a leadoff hitter.

While an Astro, Moreno hit .242 with 11 triples in 97 games before he was dealt to the New York Yankees for fellow outfielder Jerry Mumphrey. Moreno played in New York before closing his career with the Royals and Braves.

In his 12-year career, Moreno hit .252 with 37 homers, 487 steals and a .306 on-base percentage, leading to a .649 OPS.
