Report: Rays hold workout for Moncada, still unlikely to sign him
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Rays held a private workout Wednesday for Cuban infielder Yoan Moncada, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Rays baseball operations president Matt Silverman was in attendance to watch Moncada's workout.

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.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Rays pitcher Matt Moore is targeting a June return, according to MLB.com.

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.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Rays pitcher Matt Moore took a significant step forward in his receovery from Tommy John surgery when he threw off a mound Tuesday, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

"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."
