Pirates | Pittsburgh looking at two Tampa SPs

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 12:12:36 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SPs Jake Odorizzi and Matt Moore may be trade targets for the Pittsburgh Pirates leading up to the trade deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Odorizzi and Moore have been popular names in trade rumors, but the Pirates are looking to add a starting pitcher. Either pitcher would be an upgrade for Pittsburgh and would continue to be decent fantasy options in mixed leagues.

Rays | Matt Moore has been innings eater

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 22:00:32 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore is scheduled to start Thursday, July 21, against the Oakland Athletics. He has lasted at least six innings in each consecutive starts.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners are happy with Moore lately, despite his 5-7 record, as he has been able to go deep into games. He is a decent AL-only fantasy play and mid-tier DFS option.

Rays | Matt Moore being scouted

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 14:12:45 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore was being scouted by the Los Angeles Dodgers, Texas Rangers, Boston Red Sox, Pittsburgh Pirates and Washington Nationals during his start against the Baltimore Orioles over the weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Moore lowered his ERA to 4.33 with an effective outing against a good Baltimore offense, and he also sports a 1.29 WHIP and 7.6 K/9 in 19 starts for the Rays. He'd be extremely attractive on the waiver wire if he crosses over to the National League before the end of July and the trading deadline.

Rangers | Texas interested in Matt Moore

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 07:10:11 -0700

The Texas Rangers have expressed interest in Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: The Rangers are currently searching for starting and relieving help and it's possible that the 27-year-old left-hander could benefit from a change of scenery. He is 5-7 with a 4.33 ERA through 19 starts this season, with 34 walks and 98 strikeouts through 116 1/3 innings. At least six other teams have expressed interest in Moore, who may be considered expendable by the Rays since Alex Cobb is expected to return from Tommy John surgery later this year.

Rays | Seven teams interested in Matt Moore

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 07:19:10 -0700

The Baltimore Orioles, Boston Red Sox, Houston Astros, Kansas City Royals, Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees and Texas Rangers have all expressed interest in Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore.

Fantasy Tip: Moore could be expendable because SP Alex Cobb is expected to return from Tommy John surgery later this season. The 27-year-old left-hander is 4-5 with a 4.67 ERA through 16 starts this year, with 90 strikeouts over 96 1/3 innings. He's a decent option in daily fantasy games if he has a favorable matchup.

Rangers | Texas looking at Matt Moore, Odorizzi

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 10:56:49 -0700

The Texas Rangers have had their scouts watching Tampa Bay Rays SPs Matt Moore and Jake Odorizzi this week as they look to upgrade their pitching before the trade deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Moore held the Red Sox scoreless in his outing Wednesday and has looked a lot better of late after struggling after a fine April. Odorizzi has been decent this year with a 3.93 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 8.4 K/9. Both pitchers wouldn't see a huge boost in fantasy value with a move to Texas and that hitter-friendly park, but they'd have more chances for wins on a first-place club.

Rays | Matt Moore marvelous in win

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 15:18:38 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore picked up his fourth win of the season Wednesday, June 29, after defeating the Boston Red Sox. The left-hander tossed seven shutout innings, yielding just three hits and two walks, while picking up six strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Not only was this an excellent outing from the 27-year-old, it was an important one, too. Moore saw his run of back-to-back quality starts end his last time out, but he was able to bounce back here in a big way opposite a really good lineup. Moore has now pitched six or more innings in five straight outings, and appears to be returning to earlier season form when he posted a respectable 3.66 ERA in April. The lefty is someone to keep an eye on if he's out there.

Rays | Matt Moore looks to turn it around

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 20:51:55 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore is scheduled to face the Boston Red Sox Wednesday, June 29. He is 3-4 with a 5.40 ERA in eight career appearances (seven starts) against Boston. He is 1-2 with a 6.35 ERA in three starts against the Red Sox at Tropicana Field.

Fantasy Tip: Moore should be avoided in fantasy leagues which permit daily transactions and in DFS play, as he just doesn't seem to match up well against the BoSox.

Rays | Matt Moore tagged with loss Friday

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 19:42:52 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore (3-5) allowed five runs (four earned) on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings in a loss to the Baltimore Orioles Friday, June 24, with one walk and six strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: The Rays are just 2-10 in Moore's last 12 starts, although several of those losses were due to lack of run support. That being said, he makes a very risky play for his next scheduled outing against the hot-hitting Boston Red Sox Wednesday, June 29.

Rays | Matt Moore tosses seven-inning gem

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 14:30:00 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore allowed two hits and a walk while matching a season high with 10 strikeouts in seven frames to pick up the win on Sunday, June 12, against the Houston Astros.

Fantasy Tip: The scoreless outing was the first of the season for Moore, who had yielded at least four runs in four of his last five outings. As a result, he is sitting on a 5.05 ERA despite today's dominant performance. He's a questionable start at best when the San Francisco Giants visit next weekend.
