Rangers inquire with Nationals about Tyler Moore


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2014) Looking to fill a hole created by the injury to Prince Fielder, the Rangers have inquired with the Nationals regarding first baseman Tyler Moore, MLB.com reports.

Moore isn't the only potential addition on the Rangers' list of possibilities, and talks between the two teams haven't progressed to a serious stage, but the Nationals have little use for Moore long-term at first base with Ryan Zimmerman potentially moving across the diamond once Adam LaRoche's contract expires. Moore has hit .203/.282/.359 with three home runs and nine RBI in 64 at-bats.

Tyler Moore gets the call

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Tyler Moore wants to avoid another 'lackadaisical' spring


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2014) Despite a down year in 2013, first baseman/outfielder Tyler Moore is expected to win a spot on the Nationals' bench this spring. However, he's taking nothing for granted following what he deemed a "wakeup call" last year.

"I’m not given anything," Moore said Saturday at FanFest, per MLB.com. "I definitely have to earn what I’m gonna get. I’m just looking forward to it, looking forward to competing."

While Moore's numbers declined in '13 as he took on more of a bench role, he did perform well down the stretch once he returned from the minors. Moore hit .344 with a .375 on-base percentage and .834 OPS in his last 21 games following his recall.

He explained what might have contributed to his poor start last season.

"I think last year maybe I was a little too lackadaisical in spring, and that’s what I want to kind of correct this year because I know I don’t have an everyday job, obviously," Moore said. "I have to be ready to come in and hit when I have a chance, and when I have that chance, I have to take the best advantage of it."


Tyler Moore gets the call


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2013) The Nationals have been looking for a way to get Tyler Moore back on the roster in recent weeks, and a roster spot finally opened up for him Saturday. Pitcher Taylor Jordan was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, and the Nationals recalled Moore from Triple-A Syracuse to take his place.

Moore is hitting .318 with a .979 OPS in 173 at-bats at Triple-A this season, but hit just .151 in the majors prior to a demotion earlier in the season.  


Source: Nationals considering recalling Tyler Moore


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2013) The Nationals are considering recalling outfielder/first baseman Tyler Moore before rosters expand in September, one source told MLB.com.

"The sooner the better," the source added.

If Moore returns to Washington, he could see more playing time than before. Moore could start in left field against left-handed pitchers, moving Bryce Harper to center field on those nights. 

Moore has been a changed hitter since his demotion to Triple-A in early July. He hit .394 with four home runs, five doubles and 18 RBI in 17 July games following his demotion, and he's batting .292 with two home runs, three doubles and nine RBI in six August games.


Tyler Moore gets back to 'normal' at Triple-A


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2013) Nationals outfielder Tyler Moore has been thriving since his demotion to Triple-A Syracuse. Moore is batting .400 (26 for 65) with four home runs, five doubles and 18 RBI in 17 games since joining the Syracuse lineup.

Moore, who had a two-homer, six-RBI outing Monday, said his timing has been better since he started working with Syracuse hitting coach Troy Gingrich. Moore struggled with his bench role for Washington, batting .151 in 42 games.

"For me it was Troy helping me out a lot and in that I need to start earlier," Moore said, per The Washington Post. "It slowed the ball down, slowed everything down and now it feels like I’m back to normal just hitting the ball like I can. It wasn’t anything with my swing, wasn’t anything to do with that. It was just tough coming off the bench and not being able to find that because you have only sporadic times to play."


Tyler Moore optioned to Triple-A


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2013) The Nationals optioned outfielder Tyler Moore to Triple-A Syracuse Monday to clear a 25-man roster spot for Monday's scheduled starter Dan Haren. Moore has hit .151/.195/.283 with three home runs and 14 RBI in 106 at-bats.

Roster move coming for Tyler Moore


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2013) Nationals outfielder Tyler Moore is not listed on the team's lineup card Monday against the Phillies.

With Scott Hairston joining the team, and Dan Haren coming off the disabled list to start, Moore could be sent back to Triple-A Syracuse. Moore has continued to struggled after his second call-up. He's hitting .151/.195/.283 in 106 at-bats. 


Tyler Moore returns a changed hitter


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2013) Nationals outfielder Tyler Moore hit a game-tying, solo home run in the fourth inning Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, helping Washington come back from a 2-0 deficit to win 3-2. Moore is batting .375 (3 for 8) with a home run and two RBI in four games (two starts) since returning from the minors.

Moore hit .144 in 35 games prior to his demotion in late May.

"I came in here and tried to do too much," Moore said of his early season approach, per The Washington Post. "Chasing balls, swing was long, trying to think about home runs instead of worrying about the small result and that will produce something."


Tyler Moore recalled by Nationals


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2013) The Nationals have called up first baseman/outfielder Tyler Moore Tuesday.

Moore is taking Dan Haren's roster spot. The pitcher was placed on the disabled list. Moore had been used as a pinch hitter with the club earlier this year, but was sent to Triple-A Syracuse in order to receive regular playing time. The Nationals still need a fifth starter, but Moore could stay with the club if Jayson Werth has to miss time.

Moore hit .158/.206/.274 in 95 at-bats in the majors. 


Tyler Moore adjusting to regular playing time


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2013) Nationals first baseman/outfielder Tyler Moore is trying to adjust to playing every day in Triple-A Syracuse. 

Moore admitted he would rather be receiving regular playing time in Triple-A than pinch hitting in the majors. He's struggled in Triple-A thus far, with a .178 average in 45 at-bats.

Syracuse manager Tony Beasley said Moore's timing has not been right. "He’s an aggressive hitter. He likes the fastball in the zone. He’s missing fastballs right now that he’ll usually do damage with. So it’s just timing for him right now," Beasley said. 

Moore said he wasn't worried about his struggles because he knows he'll have an opportunity to right the ship the following day. He hit .158/.206/.274 in limited duty in the majors. 


Tyler Moore accepts demotion


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2013) Nationals first baseman/outfielder Tyler Moore said he agrees with his demotion, according to MLB.com.

Moore understood that he wasn't hitting, and he knew it would lead to a demotion if he didn't figure things out. "I’m not up here for my defense. I’m up here for my hitting, and I’m not doing it. There’s no excuses," Moore said.

Moore will receive regular playing time at Triple-A Syracuse, which manager Davey Johnson believes will be good for his development. Moore was hitting .158/.206/.274 in 95 at-bats this season. 


Tyler Moore sent down to Syracuse


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2013) The Nationals have optioned outfielder Tyler Moore to Triple-A Syracuse following Sunday's doubleheader against the Twins. Moore hit .158 with two home runs and 13 RBI in 95 at-bats. He is expected to receive regular at-bats at Triple-A.

Nationals trying to get Tyler Moore more at-bats


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2013) Nationals outfielder/first baseman Tyler Moore hasn't provided the same lift offensively off the bench in 2013 that he did last season. After 23 games, Moore is hitting a disappointing .145 with one home run.

"Tyler Moore is in a little bit of a funk, he had been kind of all year," manager Davey Johnson said, per MLB.com. "He hasn't been himself. We are going to try to get him more at-bats to get him in a groove."

Hitting coach Rick Eckstein said Moore is missing on too many fastballs, which he added is also a problem for Danny Espinosa, who is also off to a slow start.

"They have to get back on the fastball," Eckstein said. "You can't be in between. …. When you are facing guys as tough as Kershaw, you are not going to get too many pitches that are over the heart of the plate. The breaking stuff, when it's down in the zone, it has late sharp bite on it. It's pretty good. You have to get on the fastball. Anytime you are sitting in between, you are late on the heater and early in the off speed. You have to get back on the heater."


Tyler Moore knocks in three


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2013) Tyler Moore received his first start for the Nationals in Monday's series opener against the Marlins and made the most of the opportunity. Playing first base, he went 2 for 5 with three RBI and a run scored in a 10-3 win.

The 26-year-old singled home two in his first at-bat before hitting an RBI double in the third inning. They were his first RBI of the year.

Moore will be taking the place of Adam LaRoche, who is receiving a normal off day. Moore will face-off against left-hander Wade LeBlanc. He will bat sixth and play first base. 


Moore to platoon in center field


by Adam Moore | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2012) With outfielder Stephen Lombardozzi to see starts at second base with shortstop Ian Desmond on the disabled list, manager Davey Johnson said he will platoon Roger Bernadina and Tyler Moore in center field. “It’s basically going to be a platoon situation, kind of like I was with Lombo,” manager Davey Johnson told the Washington Post. “This is a more natural platoon. You don’t really see a platoon with a switch-hitter. I like the lineup with Desmond hitting sixth. I can’t have afford to not have a run-producer with Desmond out.”
