Moore went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Friday's 7-6 loss to the Blue Jays. It's his first homer for Tampa Bay this season, and his first in the majors since 2012 with the Royals. Moore and his .550 career OPS will head into next season as a depth catching option once again, whether for the Rays or for another organization.
Moore was activated off the restricted list Tuesday. Moore missed Monday's contest in Toronto due to a passport issue. The issue has apparently been resolved, and he'll be eligible to play for the remainder of the series.
Moore was placed on the restricted list Monday due to improper documentation with his passport, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The Rays are playing the Blue Jays in Canada for three days. It's unclear whether the issue will be resolved quickly or if he'll miss the entire series. He's temporarily off the 40-man roster until the issue is resolved. The Rays called up Nick Ciuffo as a backup catcher while Moore is unavailable.
Moore will head to Triple-A Durham after clearing waivers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Moore was designated for assignment Thursday, and after receiving little interest from other teams around the league, he'll accept his assignment with the Bulls. The 34-year-old backstop is batting .215 with two homers and 22 RBI through 44 games at Triple-A in 2018.
Moore will be designated for assignment by the Rays prior to Thursday's game against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Moore will wind up having gotten into just one game for the Rays, going hitless in three at-bats. New acquisition Michael Perez will jump ahead of him on the catcher depth chart, backing up Jesus Sucre until Wilson Ramos returns from his hamstring injury. It will now likely take another injury for Moore to return to the big leagues.
