  • Rangers' Matt Moore: Activated for Thursday's contest

    The Rangers reinstated Moore (personal) from the bereavement list Thursday.

    After a three-day stint on the paternity list, Moore was moved to the bereavement list Wednesday so he could spend an extra day with his wife and newborn child. Now ready to rejoin the Rangers for Thursday's series finale, Moore should settle back into a late-inning role in the bullpen.

  • Rangers' Matt Moore: Goes on bereavement leave

    The Rangers transferred Moore (personal) from the paternity list to the bereavement list Wednesday.

    According to Levi Weaver of The Athletic, Moore's newborn child and wife are fine; the veteran southpaw asked to spend more than the maximum three days away from the team, and the Rangers were able to facilitate his request by moving him to a different inactive list. Players can spend a maximum of seven days on the bereavement list, so Moore should be expected to rejoin the Rangers by the middle of next week, if not sooner.

  • Rangers' Matt Moore: Lands on paternity list

    Moore was placed on the paternity list Sunday.

    Moore recorded a hold with a scoreless frame Saturday and will now step away from the team for a few days to be with his family. Yerry Rodriguez was promoted from Triple-A Round Rock to fill out the Rangers' bullpen.

  • Rangers' Matt Moore: Picks up second save

    Moore allowed a hit in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Thursday's 2-0 win over the Angels.

    Brett Martin had pitched three of the last four days and was presumably unavailable for Thursday's save chance. Moore gave up a one-out single to Luis Rengifo but didn't give up anything else to secure his second save of the season. Through 12 innings this month, Moore has allowed four runs (one earned), nine hits, four walks and a hit-by-pitch while striking out 11. He's maintained a 1.70 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 52:24 K:BB through 47.2 innings while adding four holds and a 4-2 record. Given his solid pitching this year, the veteran southpaw could be traded prior to Tuesday's deadline, though his multi-inning capability makes it a bit less likely that he'll see significant high-leverage chances.

  • Rangers' Matt Moore: Spotless in June

    Moore allowed one hit and struck out one over two scoreless innings in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to Kansas City.

    Moore remains unblemished for the month of June with four hits and four walks allowed while striking out 15 over 13.1 scoreless innings. The 33-year-old lefty, who sports a 182 ERA+ for the season, is part of a Texas bullpen that's ranked ninth during the month of June with a 3.40 ERA.

  • Rangers' Matt Moore: Picks up first save

    Moore threw a perfect inning and earned a save over Houston on Monday.

    Moore needed just six pitches to quickly retire the Astros in order and finish off the 5-3 win. He's riding a six-inning scoreless streak since coughing up three runs against the Rays on May 30. The veteran southpaw is sporting a 2.54 ERA with a 35:16 K:BB through 28.1 innings.

  • Rangers' Matt Moore: Earns win with two strong innings

    Moore (3-0) picked up the win Saturday against the White Sox, striking out five batters across a pair of scoreless innings without allowing a baserunner.

    Moore entered a tied game in the bottom of the eighth and did his job expertly across the next two frames, striking out five batters while getting the sixth to pop out. That left him as the pitcher of record when the Rangers scored four runs in the top of the 10th. Moore has been surprisingly effect in a relief role this season, cruising to a 2.63 ERA and 29.7 percent strikeout rate in 27.1 innings of work.

  • Rangers' Matt Moore: Nearly immaculate

    Moore allowed one hit and one walk while striking out two over two scoreless innings in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Astros.

    Moore nearly had an immaculate sixth inning, striking out the first two batters on six pitches and getting to 0-2 on the third batter before a groundout on the ninth and final pitch of the frame. The lefty, who made his fourth consecutive scoreless appearance Wednesday, has allowed one run on four hits and eight walks while striking out 10 over 8.1 innings since his contract was selected April 16. While the walk rate needs to be better, Moore credits a new grip on his curveball for his results, according to Kennedi Landry of Texas manager Chris Woodward has been impressed, and it looks like Moore will remain in the bullpen even when Josh Sborz (elbow) returns from the injured list.

  • Rangers' Matt Moore: Contract selected by Rangers

    Moore's contract was selected by the Rangers on Saturday.

    Moore joined the Rangers on a minor-league deal in mid-March, but he'll now link up with the big-league club after Josh Sborz (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list. The 32-year-old Moore made two relief appearances at Triple-A Round Rock to begin the year, and he struck out seven in five scoreless frames. Although the southpaw has experience as a starter, he'll likely pitch out of the bullpen for now.

  • Rangers' Matt Moore: Links up with Texas

    Moore agreed Sunday with the Rangers on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to MLB spring training, independent baseball journalist Jeff Wilson reports.

    Moore will be embarking on his second stint with the Rangers, after he previously spent the 2018 campaign in Texas, with whom he posted a 6.79 ERA and 1.66 WHIP over 102 innings. The Rangers have since opened a more pitcher-friendly ballpark, but the fact that Moore is now four years older and attending camp as a non-roster invitee makes it an uphill battle for him to claim a rotation spot with the big club, much less find success in his second tour with Texas. Moore at least appears to be healthy again, after he finished the 2021 campaign on the Phillies' injured list with a low-back strain. Before being shut down, he made 24 appearances (13 starts) for the Phillies, submitting a 6.29 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 63:38 K:BB in 73 frames.

  • Phillies' Matt Moore: Shifts to 60-day injured list

    Moore (back) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    The move confirms that the back strain that sent Moore to the injured list Thursday will in fact be season-ending. His return to MLB after a 2020 season spent in Japan wound up being a disappointing one, as he struggled to a 6.29 ERA and 1.59 WHIP across 13 starts and 11 relief appearances. The transaction clears space on the 40-man roster for the Phillies to select Kyle Dohy's contract.

  • Phillies' Matt Moore: Placed on injured list

    Moore was placed on the 10-day injured list with a low back strain Thursday, retroactive to Sept. 20.

    Moore tweaked his back during batting practice Wednesday, and the issue will force him to spend time on the injured list. He'll be eligible to return prior to the end of the regular season since the move was backdated to Monday, but it's not yet clear whether he'll be healthy enough in time. Left-hander Cristopher Sanchez was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to take his place in the bullpen.

  • Phillies' Matt Moore: Moving to bullpen

    Moore will be available out of the bullpen Saturday, with the Phillies expected to go with bullpen days in what had been his spot in the rotation, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Moore has been ineffective for most of the season, struggling to a 6.49 ERA and 1.63 WHIP across 13 starts and eight relief appearances. The expanded September rosters mean the Phillies won't need to use him to eat innings, though he could still be used in a multi-inning relief role during those bullpen games.

  • Phillies' Matt Moore: Struggles again

    Moore surrendered five runs on six hits and five walks while striking out two over 3.1 innings during Tuesday's win over the Nationals. He did not factor into the decision.

    A lack of control plagued Moore once again. The southpaw threw only 38 of his 82 pitches for strikes, registering a strike rate of 46.3 percent. Moore's start is the first by a Phillies pitcher with five-plus walks and two or fewer strikeouts since Henderson Alvarez in 2017. The 32-year-old has eclipsed five innings in a start just once across his last seven outings. Moore could potentially see another turn in the rotation if Zach Eflin (knee) remains on the shelf. If so, he lines up for a road start Monday at Milwaukee.

  • Phillies' Matt Moore: Pulled after four innings

    Moore (2-4) picked up the loss Thursday against Arizona, pitching four innings while allowing four runs on seven hits with two walks and two strikeouts.

    Moore ran into trouble early Thursday and allowed four consecutive singles in the second inning to plate two runs, while also later surrendering a two-run home run to Nick Ahmed. The southpaw only threw 70 pitches total in the contest, and has surpassed five innings in a start once across his last six outings. Moore lines up take the mound next week in Washington if Zach Eflin (knee) remains sidelined after being scratched Thursday.

  • Phillies' Matt Moore: Starting Thursday's game

    Moore will start Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks, Todd Zolecki of reports.

    The 32-year-old will step in to start on short notice after right-hander Zach Eflin was scratched due to a knee issue. Moore made his last start Friday, so he'll be pitching on normal rest in Thursday's series opener against Arizona.

  • Phillies' Matt Moore: Lasts 4.1 innings Friday

    Moore didn't factor into the decision Friday against San Diego after allowing two runs on three hits and four walks while fanning four across 4.1 innings.

    Moore has managed to bounce back from his Aug. 10 outing against the Dodgers in which he gave up three runs and recorded just one out -- he's now allowed just two runs across 10.1 innings (two starts) since rejoining the rotation. He's started in 11 of his 19 appearances, posting a 5.93 ERA and 1.50 WHIP across 60.2 total innings so far this season.

  • Phillies' Matt Moore: Stays in rotation

    Moore is scheduled to start Friday's game against the Padres in San Diego.

    Moore joined the rotation last week as a replacement for Chase Anderson, who had been moved to the injured list with a triceps issue, and surprised by striking out eight over six no-hit innings. The veteran southpaw had maintained a 7.67 ERA and 1.59 WHIP in his previous seven outings with the Phillies. Moore's body of work this season would suggest his most recent start is a massive outlier, but he'll at least get the chance to make one more turn through the rotation while a now-healthy Anderson works out of the bullpen.
