Moore (quadriceps) was reinstated from the DL on Friday. Moore returns from a two-week stay on the disabled list with a right quad injury. The catcher is hitting .235/.312/.346 with four home runs and 14 RBI during 42 games this season for Triple-A Columbus.
Moore was placed on the 7-day disabled list Friday for Triple-A Columbus with a right quad injury. The injury may explain Moore's recent skid at the plate following his solid start to the season. The 33-year-old is hitting just .114/.205/.200 over his last 11 games after batting .295 with nine RBI in May. It's unclear as to the severity of the ailment at this point, but anything extensive would certainly put a damper on an otherwise productive year.
Moore agreed to a minor league deal with the Indians on Monday that includes an invitation to spring training, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports. The 32-year-old catcher spent most of his time in Triple-A Columbus, slashing .247/.316/.365 in 329 plate appearances in the process. He was briefly called up to the Indians, going hitless in five at-bats with four strikeouts. Given his career slash line of .197/.237/.303 in 292 major league plate appearances, he will likely serve as organizational depth again for the Tribe.
Moore was outrighted to Triple-A Columbus on Monday. Moore went hitless in his brief stint with Cleveland in September, and given his inauspicious showing in the minors, it was only a matter of time before the journeyman catcher was cast off the 40-man roster. The 32-year-old will likely go on to act as organizational depth next season.
Moore was added to the Indians' 40-man roster Thursday. Moore spent his entire year with Columbus, posting an uninspiring .247/.316/.365 line over 86 games. The 32-year-old has some MLB experience, but hasn't had an impressive performance while doing so. In his major league career, Moore has hit .201/.241/.309 with a 31 percent strikeout rate.
