However, despite bringing in Moncada for a workout, it still seems unlikely the Rays will sign the 19-year-old prospect. Silverman acknowledged last week they had interest in Moncada, but were not likely "to be the winners of an auction.''
Moncada is expected to get a deal worth at least $30 million to $40 million. He has reportedly worked out for several teams, including the Dodgers, Yankees, Red Sox and Giants.
In return, the White Sox will receive a player to be named later or cash. The 24-year-old Marjama hit .266/.292/.383 over 262 plate appearances in High-A last year.
Moore underwent Tommy John surgery last season, but was able to throw off a mound for the first time on Tuesday. Moore said he's hoping he can return to a major-league mound in June. "I hope June, [to pitch] in a Major League game, he said. "I think that's about right -- 14 months [after the surgery]. So we should know a lot more in the next month as I start to get on the hill and things have a chance to respond."
Moore started just two games last season before undergoing surgery.
"It felt pretty good," Moore said.
Moore had the surgery in April and said he is pleased with the progress he has made.
"I would have thought a while ago I would have been nervous, but I was looking forward to it," Moore said. "And I felt like I had a lot more that could have come out. That's a feeling I've had the last month or so, and that's a feeling I like to have. I think we're in a good spot right now."
