(8/21/2014) Rays pitcher Matt Moore is recovering as expected from Tommy John surgery, and he told MLB.com Thursday he could begin a throwing program soon.

"I have sock throws starting this coming Monday," Moore said. "I'll do those six times, two weeks worth, Monday, Wednesday, Friday times two. After that, I'll be at 20 weeks. That will be five months [since his surgery] and I'll start my throwing program."

Moore is aiming for a May 2015 return to the majors, after missing all but two starts this season while recovering. Though he did add he might hit the brakes in his recovery a bit, if he feels rushed at the beginning of next season.

"If it was June, honestly, I think it would be best for all parties," he added. "Our squad in general and myself, just to make sure that we're not trying to get to May [and rushing things]."

Matt Moore still in holding pattern after seing doctor Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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

Joe Maddon impressed with Matt Moore despite six walks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

"That's as good as stuff as I've seen him have in a long time, based on fastball, break on the curveball and changeup, outstanding," he told the Tampa Tribune. "That as as good as stuff as he had when he beat the Rangers several years ago in the playoff game. The other part of it is the command still is a little bit there and then not there, but overall I kind of liked what I saw better, because we haven't seen that kind of stuff in a while."

Moore hit 96 mph on his fastball, but only threw half of his 96 pitches for strikes.
