Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore (elbow) threw 29 fastballs in a bullpen session that went well Tuesday, Feb. 24. Moore is recovering from Tommy John surgery and is targeting a return sometime in June. Moore also threw changeups off flat ground Tuesday.
Fantasy Tip: Moore will obviously come at an injury discount this year, but he's probably not worth pursuing in standard leagues. However, in very deep mixed leagues, you may want to take a chance on him as a late-round flier if you can stash him in a DL spot. Remember, though, that starters often struggle with velocity and control issues immediately upon returning from TJS, so Moore probably won't be back to peak form until next season.

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore (elbow) has decided to undergo Tommy John surgery, and he'll miss around a full year. The pain he felt during his throwing session Monday, April 14, made it clear to him that he needed to have the operation. Doctor James Andrews will do the procedure Tuesday, April 22.
Fantasy Tip: Erik Bedard and Cesar Ramos are now rounding out the rotation thanks to the injuries to Moore and Alex Cobb (oblique). Bedard should be your first target in AL-only leagues for the long-term, but Enny Romero can be put high on the radar in those formats, as well, as he'll likely see some time in the rotation before long.
