      Matt Moore: Rangers decline 2019 option

      The Rangers declined Matt Moore's $10 million option for 2019 on Friday.This comes as no surprise, as Moore struggled mightily in 2018, posting a 6.79 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 7.6 K/9 across 102 innings. The southpaw was dropped from the team's rotation in June after posting an 8.02 ERA across 12 starts. Given his ugly 5.22 ERA and 1.47 WHIP over the past four seasons, his days as a viable major-league starter appear to be over.

      Rangers' Matt Moore: Gives team innings Saturday

      Matt Moore allowed two hits and four walks while striking out six over 4.1 innings of relief in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Tigers.The left-hander entered this one early when Cole Hamels was chased after giving up seven runs in two-thirds of an inning. Since being yanked from the starting rotation, Moore has pitched mostly as a long reliever. He's allowed five runs on nine hits and six walks while striking out 13 over 12.2 innings, spanning five appearances. In four of those five outings, Moore has pitched at least two innings.

      Rangers' Matt Moore: Shifted to bullpen

      Matt Moore has been removed from the starting rotation and shifted to a bullpen role, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.He'll no longer make his scheduled start over the weekend, though the Texas Rangers have yet to announce his replacement in the rotation. This isn't all too surprising, as Moore struggled mightily through 12 starts this season, compiling an 8.02 ERA and 41:26 K:BB across 55 innings of work. He tossed a scoreless inning of relief in his lone appearance out of the bullpen this season, so maybe he'll fare better in a long-relief role.

      Rangers' Matt Moore: May have start skipped

      Manager Jeff Banister reported Tuesday that Matt Moore may not make his next turn through the rotation, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.The Texas Rangers are noncommittal on Moore's current spot in the starting rotation, as the veteran maintains a brutal 7.88 ERA and 2.04 WHIP on the year. If he is indeed bumped from the rotation, minor leaguers Austin Bibens-Dirkx and Yovani Gallardo appear to be realistic candidates to start in his place.

      Rangers' Matt Moore: Lasts only three innings

      Matt Moore allowed six runs (five earned) on nine hits and one walk while failing to register a strikeout across three innings Sunday against the Astros. He did not factor into the decision.Moore couldn't survive his first pitch without allowing an earned run, as George Springer drove a home run to center field on Moore's opening offering of the game. Things didn't improve much from there for him, as he allowed three more extra-base hits before being chased after three innings. This start marked the fourth time in 12 starts that Moore has failed to complete at least four innings of work, and he now has a horrendous 7.88 ERA to go along with a 2.04 WHIP through 56 frames this season.

      Rangers' Matt Moore: Quality start in no-decision

      Matt Moore did not factor into the decision in Tuesday's win over the Athletics, allowing three runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out two over six innings.The lefty was tagged for a pair of runs in the first inning, but he was able to recover from that point to notch just his second quality start of the year. Moore wasn't missing many bats -- it was the sixth time this season he's struck out two or fewer -- and he yielded three extra-base hits including a home run. Even so, he was able to make it through six innings for the first time since April 17. He'll take an unsightly 7.47 ERA into a start against the Astros on Sunday.

      Rangers' Matt Moore: Breaks down in fourth inning of no-decision

      Matt Moore allowed five runs (four earned) on eight hits and two walks with six strikeouts through 5.1 innings in a no-decision Wednesday against Seattle.Moore's control got the best of him in the fourth inning, as he walked two batters, threw a wild pitch and suffered a passed ball in a three-run frame that derailed his bid at a quality start. Moore was nasty at times, as he induced 12 swinging strikes in 108 pitches, and the fact that he was able to bounce back with a scoreless fifth shows the knee injury that sent him to the disabled list briefly isn't much of a concern. Unfortunately, Moore hasn't been able to put it all together for a full start often enough in 2018, as he owns a brutal 7.85 ERA. He'll try to push that in the right direction next time out Tuesday against Oakland.

      Rangers' Matt Moore: Activated from DL

      Matt Moore (knee) has been reinstated from the 10-day disabled list ahead of Wednesday's start against Seattle, John Blake of the Texas Rangers reports.Moore is scheduled to make his 10th start of the season after returning from a short stint on the disabled list. He'll look to improve on a disappointing start to the season, as he's accrued a 7.99 ERA and 2.02 WHIP with 33 strikeouts over 41.2 innings. Austin Bibens-Dirkx has been sent down in a corresponding move.

      Rangers' Matt Moore: Will start Wednesday vs. Seattle

      Matt Moore (knee) will be activated from the 10-day disabled list ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday against the Mariners, Dic Humphrey of reports.Moore would have been ready to come off the DL as soon as Tuesday, but the Texas Rangers elected to give him an extra day to recover from the right knee issue before slotting him back into the rotation. Though Moore shouldn't face any restrictions Wednesday following the brief shutdown period, his spot in the rotation is likely on thin ice after he struggled mightily through his first 10 outings (nine starts) prior to hitting the DL. Over 41.2 innings this season, Moore has gone 1-5 with a 7.99 ERA and 2.02 WHIP.

Sullivan of reports.If Moore responds with no problems, then he could pitch Tuesday, the day he's eligible to come off the disabled, although manager Jeff Banister is considering giving Austin Bibens-Dirkx a second start so that all starters get an extra day of rest.
