Moore (knee) was moved to the 60-day injured list Tuesday. Moore has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2019 season after undergoing knee surgery, so the Tigers will open up a spot on the 40-man roster by transferring him to the 60-day injured list. Harold Castro was added to the 40-man in a corresponding move.
Moore (knee) will miss the rest of the 2019 season after undergoing meniscus surgery Wednesday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Moore initially believed he could avoid surgery, but the Tigers later determined a procedure would be necessary. The southpaw was optimistic that his surgery would keep him sidelined for 4-to-6 weeks, but his timeline was pushed back after doctors detected more damage than expected. Moore will become a free agent after the season and may have to settle for a one-year contract with limited guaranteed money after missing nearly all of 2019 due to injury.
Moore will undergo surgery Wednesday to address a meniscus tear in his right knee, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Moore indicated earlier in the week he might be able to avoid surgery, but his brief attempt at rehab apparently didn't yield any improvement. More clarity on Moore's timeline for a return should become available once the procedure is completed, though the southpaw said he's hopeful that he'll need just 4-to-6 weeks to heal up if no reconstructive work is needed for the knee, per Beck.
Moore said Tuesday that he's optimistic that he can treat his sprained right knee through rest and rehab rather than surgery, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports. The southpaw has yet to formally decide whether to undergo surgery for the knee issue -- which he believes is meniscus-related -- but the lack of swelling he's experienced since suffering the injury in Saturday's start against the Royals offers encouragement that a procedure won't be necessary. In any event, Moore will almost certainly miss more than the minimum 10 days, paving the way for Daniel Norris to receive multiple turns through the Detroit rotation.
Moore and the Tigers are still determining whether surgery or rest and rehab is the better method for treating the sprained right knee he sustained in his start Saturday against the Royals, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. With three strikeouts over three scoreless frames, Moore was well on his way to his second straight excellent outing to open the season before exiting with the knee injury. The Tigers announced just two hours after Moore's departure that he would shift to the 10-day injured list, with the team anticipating that he would miss at least a couple of weeks. A firmer timeline for Moore's return should become available once it's decided how he'll treat the injury, but any surgical procedure would almost certainly increase the length of his absence. Daniel Norris will get the first crack at replacing the southpaw in the rotation.
