Rays | Matt Moore using curveball more often

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore has been using his curveball more often lately and appears to be more comfortable with the pitch since it is hitting the strike zone in a more consistent basis. Manager Joe Maddon said Moore gets more comfortable during games when he is able to get the first batter of the game out. "If he gets by that first batter successfully, his confidence continues to get up even higher," Maddon said. "As the game continues and he's putting up some zeros, his confidence continues, and that's typical young guy stuff. As he starts believing in his stuff and trusting in himself, you're going to see him take off. He's more in control of his emotions, a little more deliberate."
