Report: Rays' Moore on track to make season debut Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

He wants to pitch today, and that’s a good thing,” manager Kevin Cash said Wednesday. “But I think the way we handle most if not all of our rehab guys, when they deem themselves ready, let’s go give them one more. We’re trying to be as smart as possible. There is no set structure to everything through a doctor or through a trainer, so it’s kind of on the fly. As many injuries as we have, the Tommy John one has not been a big part of this organization.”

He's worked extremely hard. We did ask him through conversations, 'Let's go make one more start in Triple-A.' And then we'll look to insert him after that start. If all goes well, he'll be with us."
