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
(4/8/2014) Rays pitcher Matt Moore is dealing with an elbow injury that involves the ulnar collateral ligament, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Moore is getting a second opinion on the injury before he and the team decide a course of action, but injuries involving the UCL are always dangerous, as a tear of the ligament generally precedes Tommy John surgery. If Moore has a tear and it's small enough, he may be able to pitch through the injury. Any timetable for his recovery at this point would be purely speculative.
