Rays | Matt Moore tagged with loss Friday

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 19:42:52 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore (3-5) allowed five runs (four earned) on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings in a loss to the Baltimore Orioles Friday, June 24, with one walk and six strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: The Rays are just 2-10 in Moore's last 12 starts, although several of those losses were due to lack of run support. That being said, he makes a very risky play for his next scheduled outing against the hot-hitting Boston Red Sox Wednesday, June 29.

Rays | Matt Moore tosses seven-inning gem

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 14:30:00 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore allowed two hits and a walk while matching a season high with 10 strikeouts in seven frames to pick up the win on Sunday, June 12, against the Houston Astros.

Fantasy Tip: The scoreless outing was the first of the season for Moore, who had yielded at least four runs in four of his last five outings. As a result, he is sitting on a 5.05 ERA despite today's dominant performance. He's a questionable start at best when the San Francisco Giants visit next weekend.

Rays | Matt Moore drops to 2-4

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 22:49:47 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore worked his longest outing since the end of April, as he tossed seven innings Tuesday, July 7, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. He allowed five runs on seven hits, including two home runs, and also struck out three versus one walk, en route to falling to 2-4 on the year.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the loss, this was actually a step in the right direction for Moore, who had fallen off a bit throughout May after an encouraging showing in April. He still has work to do to get where he was, but given his talent and what he accomplished earlier in his career, there is still hope the left-hander can once again be a dependable asset in many fantasy leagues. He's worth monitoring.

Rays | Matt Moore pushed back

Tue, 17 May 2016 15:55:54 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore has been pushed back to face the Miami Marlins Monday, May 23, so that the Rays can split up their lefty starters. They're also giving Moore extra rest due to his recent struggles.

Fantasy Tip: Moore started out the season nicely but has since stumbled, allowing at least four earned runs in two of his three starts this month. The lefty only struck out three in his last outing and has surrendered four home runs in his last three starts. Don't give up on him just yet, but certainly consider benching him against the Fish Monday.

Rays | Matt Moore to start Monday

Fri, 06 May 2016 17:04:00 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore will make his next start against the Seattle Mariners Monday, May 9.

Fantasy Tip: Moore was originally scheduled to face the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Sunday, May 8, but was pushed back in the rotation one day because the Halos have had far more success offensively versus lefties than righties. Moore is just 1-3 with a 4.95 ERA in six starts this year but could be worth a flier in daily fantasy contests because of his 37 strikeouts in 36 1/3 innings.

Rays | Matt Moore may be skipped

Wed, 04 May 2016 23:19:47 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore may have his start skipped Sunday, May 8, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The Angels hit left-handers much better than right-handers. SP Matt Andriese or SP Erasmo Ramirez could make the start Sunday. If Moore makes the start, SP Blake Snell could come up to start Monday, May 9, or Tuesday, May 10, against the Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: Moore is 1-3 with a 4.95 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP, and he has 37 K's in 36 1/3 innings. So he's really feast or famine right now, but he's a low-end consideration. Snell is the team's top pitching prospect and is worth the speculative waiver claim and stash.

Dodgers | Corey Seager not playing Tuesday

Tue, 03 May 2016 14:12:06 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, May 3, against the Tampa Bay Rays. SS Charlie Culberson is hitting ninth against Rays SP Matt Moore.

Fantasy Tip: Seager gets the night off because of the lefty matchup on the mound. Culberson has five hits in his last 21 at-bats and his fantasy value is minimal, so look elsewhere for Seager's replacement.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal not starting Tuesday

Tue, 03 May 2016 14:09:10 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not starting Tuesday, May 3, against the Tampa Bay Rays. Grandal is spelled by C A.J. Ellis, who will hit seventh against Rays SP Matt Moore.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be nothing but a normal night off for Grandal, so put him on your bench in daily leagues. Ellis is a .237-1-8 hitter in the past 30 days so his fantasy value is minimal.

Dodgers | Chase Utley not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 03 May 2016 14:05:11 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, May 3, against the Tampa Bay Rays. 2B Howie Kendrick is batting fifth against Rays SP Matt Moore, and DH Enrique Hernandez has the leadoff spot where Utley usually bats.

Fantasy Tip: Utley, a lefty, is out likely due to the lefty matchup with Moore. Kendrick carries little fantasy value (.063 in 17 at-bats in the past week), and Hernandez (.067) is similarly struggling. Leave those hitters out of your lineups.

Rays | Matt Moore punches out nine

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 22:47:16 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore allowed three earned runs, three hits and two walks with nine strikeouts over seven innings in a loss Wednesday, April 27, against the Baltimore Orioles.

Fantasy Tip: Moore has lasted at least 6 1/3 innings in each of his past four outings, and he has an impressive 1.03 WHIP and .217 opponent batting average despite his unimpressive 1-2 record. He remains a must-start fantasy option in most formats despite the fact he has dropped his past two outings.
