Player Notes
Making his first start since April 7, 2014, Matt Moore allowed four runs on six hits over 4 2/3 innings in Thursday's no-decision against the Indians.

Advice: Moore had been on the shelf for over a year as he recovered from Tommy John surgery. He held a 2.95 ERA and 24/8 K/BB ratio in 21 1/3 minor league rehab innings before the Rays eased him back into action against the Indians on Thursday. Throwing 53 of his 84 pitches for strikes, he struck out four and walked two in the contest. After putting up zeros on the scoreboard through the first three innings, he allowed a run in the fourth, then three straight RBI singles in the fifth before being relieved of duty. Moore was an All-Star in 2013, but it's reasonable to expect some inconsistency here, as it's been a long time since the southpaw faced major league hitting. He'll take to the road for a potential tough test against the Royals as he tries to work himself back into game-shape.

Rays activated LHP Matt Moore from the 60-day disabled list.

Advice: Moore will start Thursday for the Rays, his first start since April 7 of last season. The southpaw owned a 2.95 ERA and 24/8 K/BB ratio over 21 1/3 innings while rehabbing in the minors. Moore was an All-Star in 2013 and, while he'll have some bumps along the way, should enjoy a return to form eventually. Whether that's in 2015 is still anyone's guess.

Wed, Jul 1 Rotoworld
The Rays officially announced that Matt Moore (elbow) will make his season debut on Thursday against the Indians.

Advice: Moore struck out eight while allowing two runs over five innings for Triple-A Durham on Saturday in his final rehab start. Overall, he held a 2.95 ERA and 24/8 K/BB ratio over 21 1/3 frames across five rehab outings. The numbers are nice, but Moore's velocity hasn't returned to pre-Tommy John levels yet and he's a guy who had control issues before the operation. Fantasy owners would be wise not to get too carried away with expectations.

Matt Moore (elbow) will make his final minor league rehab start at Triple-A Durham on Saturday and is expected to rejoin the Rays rotation on Thursday against the Indians.

Advice: The only thing that could derail that plan would be a setback in Saturday's minor league tune-up. The 26-year-old southpaw has a high ceiling and is worth an add in most mixed leagues, though his command could continue to be a problem.

Rays manager Kevin Cash said Tuesday that Matt Moore (elbow) will join the rotation next week.

Advice: Moore's first start in more than 13 months will be at home against the Indians. He allowed three runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings Sunday at Triple-A Durham, though the 26-year-old left-hander did whiff seven batters. It's going to take Moore a while to get back to full strength. Expectations should be tempered from a fantasy perspective.
