Matt Moore to undergo Tommy John surgery


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2014) Rays pitcher Matt Moore has decided to undergo Tommy John surgery on his injured left elbow next week, knocking him out for the remainder of the season, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

"What was coming out, it's a shame to be have to be shut down right now but it just wasn't comfortable," Moore said. "Being stuck in the position I am right now, where it's not exactly comfortable but it's not exactly completely broke, it's kind of one of those things where you know it's going to get worse."

Moore is facing a long road to recovery before potentially rejoining the team at some point during the 2015 season. He finishes 2014 with an 0-2 record, 2.70 ERA and 6:5 K:BB ratio in 10 innings.


Catch goes 'pretty good' for Matt Moore


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2014) Rays pitcher Matt Moore played catch Monday and threw the ball "pretty good," the Tampa Bay Times reports.

"Actually (Head athletic trainer Ron Porterfield) said he threw okay, but I'm waiting to hear back from him what the final analysis is. Nothing yet,'' manager Joe Maddon said. "Ronnie said he turned it loose a little bit too, so we'll see. That was probably a good test for him. The word pain was not used. Ronnie told me he actually threw the ball pretty good.''

The team isn't ready to make an official announcement regarding Moore Monday. He's hoping to avoid Tommy John surgery.

Matt Moore seeing Dr. James Andrews Wednesday

(4/9/2014) Rays pitcher Matt Moore will see Dr. James Andrews Wednesday, according to the Tampa Bay Times

The team will know by Wednesday afternoon whether Moore will need surgery to repair a torn ligament in his elbow. Moore is hoping for the best. "Hopefully we'll be able to find a place where maybe the surgery isn't the option No. 1, and we'll be able to get to a place of comfortability so I can finish the year,'' he said. 

Moore's initial MRI was "inconclusive," so the team decided to fly him to see Dr. Andrews for a more detailed exam. Though Moore said he felt good Tuesday, things became more pessimistic as the day went on. "It's kind of a weird situation as far as the severity of things … how much they've jumped from what I was thinking earlier this morning," Moore said. 

Moore said if he has to have surgery, he would get the procedure done immediately. 


Report: Matt Moore dealing with UCL injury


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
