Daniel Morejón Torres (Spanish pronunciation: [moɾeˈxon]; July 21, 1930 – April 27, 2009) was a Cuban-born professional baseball player. He was a backup outfielder in Major League Baseball who played briefly for the Cincinnati Reds during July and early August of the 1958 season. Listed at 6 ft 1 in (185 cm), 175 lb (79 kg), Morejón batted and threw right-handed. He was born in Havana.

In his brief Major League career, Morejón was a .192 hitter (5-for-26) in 12 games, including four runs, one RBI, one stolen base, and a .400 on-base percentage. He did not have an extra base hit.

In 1955, he was named Most Valuable Player of the Carolina League while playing for the High Point-Thomasville Hi-Toms.
