Moore signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Saturday. Moore spent spring training with the Reds in 2020 but didn't appear in any games during the abbreviated season. He could get the chance to play at big-league camp this year, but he's spent most of the past several seasons at Double-A and Triple-A.
Moore signed a minor-league contract with the Reds in February. The 25-year-old inked the minor-league pact prior to the start of spring training, but he didn't appear in any Cactus League games prior to the suspension of baseball operations. Moore allowed four earned runs over 4.2 innings during his lone big-league appearance in 2019, but he spent most of the season between Double-A and Triple-A and had an 8.02 ERA over 101 frames.
The Mariners outrighted Moore to Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday. Seattle elected to drop Moore from its 40-man roster after he served up a season-high 10 runs in just two innings during his most recent start with Tacoma on Thursday. Moore's path to rejoining the big club will now become more difficult now that he no longer occupies a 40-man spot. Between stops at two Double-A and two Triple-A teams this season, Moore owns a 9.25 ERA and 1.67 WHIP and has surrendered 18 home runs in 60.1 innings.
Moore will be promoted to Triple-A Tacoma and start Friday at Albuquerque, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. Moore was 2-1 with a 3.86 ERA and 1.00 WHIP across 28 innings for Double-A Arkansas, and he'll now have a second shot at the Triple-A level this season. The 25-year-old right-hander also posted a forgettable 12.98 ERA and 2.28 WHIP over 17.1 innings for Durham in the Rays organization before being designated for assignment April 29.
Moore was optioned to Double-A Arkansas on Wednesday. Moore was shipped back to Arkansas after struggling in a spot start against the Astros on Tuesday, allowing four runs on six hits and one walk while striking out two in 4.2 innings of work. In a corresponding move, Gerson Bautista was reinstated from the 60-day injured list.
