Player Notes
Matt Moore (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery next week.

Advice: Moore tested out his elbow Monday with some throwing but evidently was still experiencing soreness. The left-hander was diagnosed last week with a torn ulnar collateral ligament, so it makes sense to go ahead and have the operation now rather than try rest and rehab, which almost never works. Moore figures to miss the beginning of the 2015 campaign.

Matt Moore tested his elbow by throwing Monday.

Advice: Rays manager Joe Maddon said that he "did OK," but that really doesn't tell us much of anything. He could have another throwing session Tuesday before deciding whether to undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery.

Matt Moore is planning to test his injured left elbow with throwing sessions Monday and Tuesday.

Advice: Moore has been diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow -- an injury that almost always leads to Tommy John reconstructive surgery. He wants to try pitching through it first, but that usually doesn't work. Tommy John surgery would already sideline him through the early part of the 2015 season, and the longer he waits the further that timetable gets pushed back.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that for the moment the Rays are calling Matt Moore's elbow injury a strain.

Advice: How they classify the injury doesn't matter a whole lot, as he has been diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow. He has vowed to attempt to pitch through the ailment before deciding whether or not to undergo Tommy John surgery, which remains the most likely course of action.

Matt Moore (elbow) will attempt to throw in 3-5 days before making a decision on whether to undergo Tommy John surgery.

Advice: Moore has been diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow, but he wants to try to pitch through the ailment, if possible. Of course, we all know how that usually goes. The odds of him ultimately avoiding surgery aren't good, whether the operation comes soon or a little down the road.

Matt Moore has been diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow.

Advice: It's a near-certainty that Moore will require Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery, which would cost him the rest of the 2014 season and even part of 2015. The talented 24-year-old left-hander suffered the torn ligament Tuesday in his second start of the year. He owns a cool 3.53 ERA and 339 strikeouts in his first 347 major league frames, but now his career will likely have to be put on hold.

The Rays will evaluate the status of Matt Moore (elbow) further on Thursday to decide whether he'll require surgery to repair his torn ulnar collateral ligament.

Advice: "It needs to be looked at a little bit more deeply because it's not a slam dunk surgery right now," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. Moore visited Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion and had an MRI taken of the elbow, the results of which will be taken into account when making a decision on Tommy John surgery. If needed, Moore would be sidelined until the middle of the 2015 season. A decision could come as soon as Thursday.

Matt Moore (elbow) will visit Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday.

Advice: We knew he was getting a second opinion from Dr. Andrews at some point this week, and now we know the day. Moore missed a month of action with a sore elbow last season but thinks the ailment is less severe this time around. However, Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan reported Tuesday that Moore's injury involves the ulnar collateral ligament, which almost always leads to Tommy John surgery.

Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan reports that Matt Moore's left elbow injury involves his ulnar collateral ligament.

Advice: Passan says the left-hander could rehab the injury if the tear is small enough. However, even a minor amount of damage to the UCL usually ends up resulting in Tommy John surgery. Moore will seek a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews later this week before a decision is made. The Rays and Moore's fantasy owners will be holding their breath until then.

Matt Moore (elbow) will receive a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews.

Advice: Rays executive vice president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said Tuesday that the first MRI on Moore's left elbow was inconclusive. It's never a good sign when a pitcher goes to see Dr. Andrews, but Friedman did add that Moore feels good. A clearer picture on the left-hander's status will be available after the meeting with Andrews, which will occur before the end of the week.
