Player Notes
Rays manager Kevin Cash said it was "all thumbs up" for Matt Moore after his bullpen session Wednesday.

Advice: Moore is now expected to be cleared to pitch in an extended spring training game Saturday. And the next step after that would be a minor league rehab assignment. The 25-year-old left-hander is coming down the stretch in his recovery from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. If all continues to go smoothly, he should be ready to rock for Tampa Bay around mid-June.

Matt Moore (elbow) threw 31 pitches to eight batters Monday in a simulated game.

Advice: Moore struck out three of those eight hitters and the only man to reach did so on an error at third base. Moore should soon be cleared to pitch in either an extended spring training game or a minor league rehab game. That'll be determined after a full-effort bullpen session Wednesday. The 25-year-old left-hander is on track to return from his April 2014 Tommy John surgery around the middle of June.

Matt Moore (elbow) threw a successful bullpen session on Friday.

Advice: He's scheduled to throw a simulated game on Monday in Port Charlotte and if all goes well would then be cleared for an extended spring training game or minor league rehab assignment. He still isn't expected to rejoin the Rays rotation until mid-June, but he's on the right track.

Matt Moore (elbow) threw 34 pitches in a two-inning simulated game on Wednesday.

Advice: Moore told reporters after the workout that he felt "a little bit out of whack" with his control, but the only important thing is that there were no complications with his surgically-repaired left elbow. The 25-year-old could be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment after one more simulated session. He's headed toward a mid-June return from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery.

Sat, May 16 Rotoworld
Matt Moore (elbow) will throw two more simulated games before beginning a rehab assignment.

Advice: The first of those sim games is scheduled for Wednesday. Moore is on his way back from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and should become an option for the Rays' starting rotation around early June if he can avoid setbacks. The 25-year-old left-hander boasts a 3.53 ERA and 8.8 K/9 in 347 career major league innings. He's worth stashing now in deeper fantasy leagues.
