Moore went 2-for-4 with a home run, an additional RBI and a walk in Saturday's loss to Cleveland. The second baseman returned from a stint on the injured list and went deep for the sixth time this season. Even though Moore has hit safely in five of his last seven contests, his average remains below the Mendoza Line. This multi-hit performance boosted his season mark to a meager .179.
Moore (calf) was activated off the 10-day injured list and will bat sixth and play second base Saturday against Cleveland. Moore had been out since mid-May with a calf strain. He hasn't been able to repeat his small-sample success from last year thus far this season, hitting just .168/.270/.353 in 41 games, though he does have eight steals and recorded an .824 OPS in his last 16 games before the injury. Donovan Walton was optioned in a corresponding move.
Moore (calf) is 4-for-8 with three doubles, a solo home run, a walk and three runs over his last two rehab games with Triple-A Tacoma. Moore also laced a single and stole a base in his first game with the Rainiers on Monday, and despite the small sample, his overall body of work would seem to suggest he's ready for activation. However, the Mariners may opt to let the valued utility man get at least another game or two in against minor-league arms before freeing him from the injured list.
Moore (calf) went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in Triple-A Tacoma's loss to Salt Lake on Monday. Moore led off and played seven innings at second base in his first game action since May 18. The fact that the valued utility man both saw a substantial workload in the field and got the green light on the basepaths certainly seems encouraging with respect to the condition of his previously ailing calf. Moore is due for at least a handful more rehab games with the Rainiers before the Mariners consider activating him.
Moore (calf) began his rehab at Triple-A Tacoma on Monday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Moore has been on the injured list since May 19 due to a left calf strain, but he's since been cleared to embark on a rehab assignment. The second baseman is leading off for the Rainiers on Monday and will likely need at least a few games in the minors before being activated.
