      Rays' Matt Moore: Takes loss despite solid outing Wednesday

      Moore (1-2) took the loss against the Orioles on Wednesday despite striking out nine and surrendering only three hits, three earned runs and two walks over seven innings. On a night where the Rays offense was once again muted, Moore's one major mistake proved to be the difference. His fifth-inning, two-out offering to Joey Rickard was launched into the left-field stands for a three-run homer, nullifying what otherwise was a stellar effort by the southpaw. He equaled his longest stint on the mound this season, while also yielding the lowest amount of hits in a start to date. However, both the long ball and to a certain extent, his control, once again helped derail him. The 26-year-old has surrendered a homer in four of his five starts, and has also walked multiple batters in three of those games. On the plus side, he's certainly missing plenty of bats, having recorded 24 whiffs over his last 20 innings of work. He'll try to get back in the win column in his next trip to the mound on Tuesday versus the Dodgers.

      Rays' Matt Moore: Fails to shut down the Yankees

      Moore allowed four runs on eight hits, walking two and striking out five over 6.2 innings of a 6-3 loss to the Yankees on Friday night. Moore (1-1) battled, but the Yankees kept chipping away and finally hung a loss on the Rays' southpaw. The good news is, he continues to show good control throwing 71 of 110 pitches for strikes, and maintaining his very solid 26:5 K:BB ratio. Command has always been his nemesis, so if he continues to hit his spots, a big year could be the result.

      Rays' Matt Moore: Strikes out 10, picks up first win Sunday

      Moore (1-0) was dominant in Sunday's win over the White Sox, allowing two runs on five hits over 6.1 innings while striking out 10 without walking a batter. His control has been particularly impressive so far in 2016, and Moore now has a 2.95 ERA and 21:3 K:BB through 18.1 innings and three starts. He'll face a tough test next Saturday, however, when the Rays are on the road against the Yankees.

      Rays' Matt Moore: Throws seven strong in no-decision

      Moore allowed just one run on five hits and a walk over seven innings Tuesday in a no-decision against Cleveland. He struck out five. Moore induced 12 swinging strikes in his 104 pitches as he had Cleveland off balance all night. The only major blemish was a Francisco Lindor solo home run. Moore bounced back well from a tough Opening Day start against Toronto and now has a 3.00 ERA.

      Rays' Matt Moore: Strikes out six in first outing

      Moore gave up three runs, five hits and two walks in five innings with six strikeouts while taking a no-decision Wednesday against the Blue Jays. Josh Donaldson's three-run homer in the third was the only damage done to Moore, who avoided the loss thanks to Steven Souza Jr.'s three-run blast in the bottom of the eighth inning. Moore struggled with his control most of the day as only 61 of his 102 pitches went for strikes -- of which, only 19 were called strikes by the umpire. The 26-year-old lefty will look to earn his first win of the season next week at home against the Indians.

      Rays' Matt Moore: Surrenders three earned runs in final spring start

      Moore surrendered a hit, three earned runs and three walks over three innings in Friday's 9-4 spring loss to the Pirates. He struck out three. Moore looked somewhat shaky in his final tune-up, but remains satisfied with how the exhibition slate turned out. "I was pretty happy with the results and how we worked the process the whole time," Moore said. "I thought my in-between days -- my work days on the side -- were good. I think we have a good foundation heading into the season." The 26-year-old made it through spring training unscathed with respect to his surgically repaired elbow, and posted a 3.38 ERA and 14 strikeouts over 13.1 spring innings.

      Rays' Matt Moore: Will pitch against minor-leaguers in next scheduled start

      Moore will pitch in a minor-league camp game on Sunday for his next scheduled start, Marc Topkin of Tampa Bay Times reports. The 26-year-old southpaw has been impressive over 10.1 spring innings, and has generated a 1.74 ERA over three exhibition starts. As he opted to do with ace Chris Archer, manager Kevin Cash will have Moore face minor-league hitting as opposed to a division rival in the Blue Jays, the big-league club's opponent on Sunday.

      Rays' Matt Moore: Fires six scoreless innings versus Cuban National Team

      Moore (1-0) threw six scoreless innings of six-hit ball in Tuesday's 4-1 exhibition victory over the Cuban National Team. He walked a batter and struck out three. Moore continued building on what has been an outstanding spring, now having surrendered just two earned runs over 16.1 spring innings. The 26-year-old southpaw's arm appears primed for the rigors of the regular season, and fully recovered from April 2014 Tommy John surgery. Moore figures to have one more extended start, likely on Sunday, before making an abbreviated appearance prior to the conclusion of the exhibition slate.

      Rays' Matt Moore: Fans eight against Phillies on Thursday

      Moore surrendered five hits and an earned run over 4.2 innings in Thursday's spring outing versus the Phillies. He struck out eight. He looked dominant in mowing through the Phillies lineup, and induced six ground balls for all of his non-strikeout outs. His only blemish was the solo homer he gave up to Ryan Howard in the fourth inning, the second long ball he's surrendered this spring. Moore now has 11 strikeouts over 10.1 exhibition frames, and has posted an impressive 1.78 ERA through three starts.

      Rays' Matt Moore: Announced as starter for exhibition game in Cuba

      Moore has been announced as the starter for the Rays' exhibition against the Cuban National Team on Mar. 22, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The southpaw has been one of the bright spots of the Rays staff in spring training, building on the momentum he generated over the final month of the 2015 season. Moore finished September with a 2-1 record that was accompanied by a sterling 2.97 ERA, and has generated an even more impressive 1.59 figure over 5.2 spring training innings. The 26-year-old's command has been sharp over his first pair of appearances, an indication that his arm could be back at full strength following his April 2014 Tommy John surgery.
