Rays | TB may deal another starting pitcher

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 14:03:52 -0800

The Tampa Bay Rays may deal another starting pitcher before spring training, with SP Drew Smyly and SP Matt Moore among the names discussed. SP Alex Cobb (elbow) will be back in August and several young arms will be ready during the season.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously, the draft stock of Smyly or Moore could go up if either one leaves Tampa Bay, so check and see if either pitcher is traded. Both players are still young and their best years are ahead. Moore could be a sleeper, as he will be nearly two years removed from Tommy John surgery at the start of the 2016 campaign.

Rays | Matt Moore finding form

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 08:14:47 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore is happy with the progress he has made since being sent to Class AAA Durham Monday, Aug. 3. "Now we're seeing things coming together -- the breaking ball is getting sharper, a better feel for the changeup, velocity on the fastball is getting a little more consistent. Those things all feel good and they're positive, so I would assume heading into the offseason we'll be very confident heading into spring training." Moore is starting against the Miami Marlins Tuesday, Sept. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Moore ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has struck out 16 batters over 13 2/3 innings while allowing just two earned runs and a .188/.220/.250 slash line to opposing batters through his past two outings. He is a viable No. 2 starting pitcher option at FantasyScore Tuesday.

Rays | Matt Moore picks up win

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 20:27:24 -0700

Correcting a previous report, Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore picked up the win over the Boston Red Sox Tuesday, Sept. 22, by allowing seven hits and two earned runs in 6 2/3 innings. He walked two and struck out seven in the outing.

Fantasy Tip: Moore ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has had his ups and downs while coming back from Tommy John surgery, and his ERA now sits at 6.48 in 10 starts for the Rays. He'll remain a shaky FantasyScore commodity for the rest of the year, but he should be much better in 2016 as he rounds back into form.

Rays | Matt Moore on track for Saturday

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 13:56:51 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore (knee) will throw a simulated game Wednesday, Sept. 23, which will put him on schedule to face the Toronto Blue Jays Saturday, Sept. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Moore ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has been a mixed bag since coming back up from the minors, and he's sporting an ugly 7.06 ERA on the season. You shouldn't be looking to start Moore in one of your pitching slots on FantasyScore this weekend against a scary Toronto offense.

Rays | Signs of life from Matt Moore

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 20:01:07 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore allowed two hits and struck out nine over seven scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, Sept. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Moore ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has been terrible since returning from Tommy John surgery, but he delivered a gem Thursday. However, he still owns a 7.06 ERA on the year, so you may want to wait until he has a couple of more solid outings before using him at FantasyScore.

Rays | Matt Moore to start Saturday

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 12:44:33 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore is scheduled to make the start against the New York Yankees Saturday, Sept. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Moore should remain fairly cheap on FantasyScore for his start against the Yankees this weekend. You'll probably want to steer clear of him in his first start back in the majors, though, as the Bronx Bombers own the fourth-best OPS (.775) against southpaws in 2015.

Rays | Matt Moore likely back this weekend

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 05:46:49 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore is likely to return to the starting rotation this weekend against the New York Yankees. The team will add him sometime this week with expanded rosters.

Fantasy Tip: Give Moore a start to see if his refinements in Triple-A paid off before using him on FantasyScore.

Rays | Matt Moore optioned to Class AAA

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 11:26:12 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore was optioned to Class AAA Durham Monday, Aug. 3. The team also recalled 3B Richie Shaffer from Class AAA Durham.

Fantasy Tip: Moore ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has struggled since returning from his injury, so he will look to work on things in the minors. He could return when the rosters expand in September. Shaffer should see some playing time and could be an option in AL-only and deeper mixed leagues.

Rays | Matt Moore to be sent down

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 18:23:23 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore will be optioned because the team plans to skip his next start as a result of how upcoming off days line up.

Fantasy Tip: Moore ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has been brutal since returning from Tommy John surgery, and he owns an 8.78 ERA in six starts. It sounds like his demotion could be a temporary thing, but with Drew Smyly potentially returning soon, Moore could be given time to work things out in the minors.

Rays | Matt Moore logs first win since return

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 15:19:58 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore allowed three runs on five hits and struck out three in five innings in a win over the Houston Astros Sunday, July 12. It was his first win since returning from elbow surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the win, Moore ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) still owns a 7.07 ERA in three starts since his return. He is worth stashing in seasonal leagues if he is available, but give him some more time to round into form before using him at FantasyScore.
