Player Outlook
It's rare for a quality reliever like Matt Moore to be released twice during the season, but he was a victim of circumstances with his employer opting to move on once their fleeting playoff aspirations vanquished. First, Moore was let go by the Angels in late August. The Guardians quickly signed Moore, but they also waived him with a couple of weeks left in the season. The Marlins claimed Moore, even though he wasn't eligible for the postseason roster. In total, Moore logged 52.2 innings, his lowest output since 2019 as he missed a month with the Angels for an oblique issue. The southpaw was typically effective, posting a 2.56 ERA, with 60 strikeouts in 52.2 innings, collecting a career-high 22 holds. Oddly, Moore exhibits reverse splits, so he's more than a matchup lefty. The Marlins designated Moore, but he should continue to find work as a high-leverage reliever.

  • Angels' Matt Moore: Back with Halos

    Moore signed a one-year, $9 million contract with the Angels on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. Moore spent time with the Angels last season, logging a 2.66 ERA and 1.02 WHIP alongside a 49:12 K:BB across 44 innings before being waived in late August. After brief stints with the Guardians and Marlins to close the season, Moore will return to Anaheim to give the Angels a reliever capable of handling high-leverage situations.

  • Marlins' Matt Moore: DFA'd by Miami

    Moore was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Sunday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. The veteran left-hander wasn't eligible to pitch for Miami in the playoffs since he was acquired in mid-September, so the organization opted to move on. Moore delivered four scoreless appearances during his brief time with the Marlins and finishes 2023 with a 2.56 ERA across 52.2 innings overall.

  • Marlins' Matt Moore: Claimed by Miami

    Miami claimed Moore off waivers from the Guardians on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. Moore will not be eligible for the playoffs given where this move falls on the season calendar, but he can give the Marlins' bullpen a boost over what remains of the regular season as they try to nail down a National League wild-card spot. The veteran left-hander has registered a strong 2.77 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 57:14 K:BB in 48.2 innings of relief this year between Anaheim and Cleveland.

  • Guardians' Matt Moore: Lands with Guardians

    Moore was claimed off waivers by the Guardians on Thursday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. The Guardians were busy Thursday, adding Moore and Reynaldo Lopez to their bullpen and Lucas Giolito to their rotation via the waiver process. Moore has had an excellent season, putting up a 2.66 ERA and 49:12 K:BB over 44 frames as a setup man for the Halos. He'll give Cleveland a left-handed bridge to closer Emmanuel Clase.

  • Angels' Matt Moore: Placed on waivers

    The Angels placed Moore on waivers Tuesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. Lucas Giolito, Reynaldo Lopez, Hunter Renfroe and Randal Grichuk have also been made available to other teams as the Angels throw in the towel on the 2023 season and look to gain some salary relief. Moore, 34, carries a 2.30 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 47:12 K:BB through 43 innings this year and should be of interest as a bullpen addition for just about any contending club.

  • Angels' Matt Moore: Grabs 20th hold

    Moore earned a hold against the Mets on Friday, allowing one hit and striking out one batter in one scoreless inning. Moore had a rare blow-up his previous time on the mound, giving up three runs in one inning against Cincinnati. He was back in form Friday, escaping with a scoreless frame despite seeing the first two batters he faced reach base via a double and an error. Moore has held the opponent scoreless in 13 of his last 14 appearances, notching eight holds while posting a 1.93 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 20:4 K:BB over 14 innings during that span. The southpaw leads the Angels with 20 holds on the campaign.

  • Angels' Matt Moore: Continues impressive campaign

    Moore earned a hold against the Giants on Wednesday, issuing one walk and striking out one batter in a hitless and scoreless inning. Moore worked as the eighth-inning bridge to closer Carlos Estevez, and he navigated around a one-out walk to keep San Francisco off the scoreboard. The lefty reliever missed nearly eight weeks of action between mid-May and mid-July due to an oblique injury, but, remarkably, he still leads the Angels -- and is tied for ninth in the AL -- with 17 holds. Moore's outstanding stat line includes a 1.70 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 37:11 K:BB over 37 innings.

  • Angels' Matt Moore: Reinstated Friday

    Moore (oblique) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Friday. As expected, Moore will resume his reliever role for the outset of the second half after missing seven weeks with an oblique injury. He has a 1.44 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 21 strikeouts in 25 innings.

  • Angels' Matt Moore: Should be ready to go after break

    Moore (oblique) threw a bullpen session Tuesday and is expected to be ready to return to the Angels following the All-Star break, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Moore was temporarily shut down from throwing after experiencing some soreness following a simulated game June 24. However, the southpaw was able to get back on the mound Tuesday and is slated to throw another bullpen this weekend. If he does so without any setbacks, Moore appears in line to be activated for the Angels' first game back from the All-Star break July 14.

  • Angels' Matt Moore: Managing some soreness

    Moore (oblique) is dealing with some soreness after he threw a simulated game Saturday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Manager Phil Nevin indicated the soreness isn't believed to be a setback, though it's certainly not an encouraging sign with the lefty closing in on his return from the injured list. Moore isn't throwing Sunday and will be re-evaluated Monday before the next steps in his rehab are determined.

  • Angels' Matt Moore: Won't be activated Monday

    Moore (oblique) told reporters Saturday that he won't be activated off the injured list Monday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Moore threw a bullpen before Saturday's game against the Rockies, and he told reporters it went "OK" but not well enough to come off the 15-day IL come Monday. The left-hander said he needs at least one more session, and when that will come will be determined by how he feels Sunday. Once active, Moore should again be a high-leverage option for the Angels bullpen.

  • Angels' Matt Moore: Chance to return early next week

    Moore (oblique) will throw a bullpen Wednesday before a simulated game over the weekend, and he could return to the major-league roster early next week, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com Moore has been on the shelf since the end of May with a Grade 2 oblique strain. It appears the southpaw has a chance to return to the Los Angeles relief staff without a rehab stint, but that likely will be determined by how the simulated action over the weekend goes. One way or another, Moore should be pitching in the late innings for the Angels by the end of June.

  • Angels' Matt Moore: Throws bullpen Sunday

    Moore (oblique) threw a bullpen session Sunday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Manager Phil Nevin said Sunday that Moore's bullpen went better than expected, and the southpaw is scheduled for another bullpen Tuesday or Wednesday. If he feels good again following his mid-week throwing session, it wouldn't be surprising to see him embark on a rehab assignment soon.

  • Angels' Matt Moore: Increasing throwing distance

    Moore (oblique) said he played catch from 60 feet Sunday, Sarah Valenzuela of the Los Angeles Times reports. Moore is gradually increasing his throwing distance off flat ground while he's in the early stages of a throwing program following a roughly two-week shutdown due to a right oblique strain. The veteran southpaw will need to advance to throwing off a mound and then facing hitters in live batting practice before the Angels map out a rehab assignment for him.

  • Angels' Matt Moore: Goes on IL

    The Angels placed Moore on the 15-day injured list Sunday with a right oblique strain. Moore suffered the injury while throwing prior to Friday's 6-2 win over the Marlins. According to Sam Blum of The Athletic, Angels manager Phil Nevin said Moore is dealing with a Grade 2 strain and is without a timeline for a return, though the expectation is that the southpaw will miss more than the minimum 15 days. The Angels called up right-hander Ben Joyce from Double-A Rocket City on Sunday to take Moore's spot in the bullpen.

  • Angels' Matt Moore: Headed for IL with oblique strain

    Angels manager Phil Nevin said after Saturday's 8-5 loss to Miami in 10 innings that Moore is set to be placed on the 15-day injured list Sunday due to an oblique strain, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. According to Nevin, Moore suffered the injury in question while throwing on the field prior to Friday's 6-2 win. After an MRI on Saturday confirmed that he had suffered a strain, Moore will now be shelved for at least the next two and a half weeks, though the Angels haven't offered up a precise timeline for his return. The Angels will promote top relief prospect Ben Joyce from Double-A Rocket City to take Moore's spot in the bullpen.

  • Angels' Matt Moore: Secures win Friday

    Moore (3-1) earned the win over the Guardians on Friday, allowing one run on three hits and one walk while striking out one batter over two innings. By most standards, this was actually Moore's worst outing of the campaign, as it was the first time in 17 trips to the mound that he has allowed multiple hits and just the third time he's allowed an earned run. However, a ninth-inning Angels comeback put the left-hander in line for his third victory of the campaign. Moore has been excellent out of the bullpen in his first season with the Angels, notching a team-high eight holds while registering a 1.35 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 19:6 K:BB over 20 innings.

  • Angels' Matt Moore: Agrees to deal with Halos

    Moore agreed to terms on a one-year, $7.55 million contract with the Angels on Thursday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. Moore had been one of the best remaining available free agents after posting a 1.95 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 83:38 K:BB over 74 innings for the Rangers last season. He also collected five saves and should be in the late-inning mix for the Angels in 2023, particularly since he was effective against hitters from both sides of the plate, holding righties to a .537 OPS and lefties to a .634 OPS.

  • Rangers' Matt Moore: Notches fifth save

    Moore earned a save after he tossed a scoreless ninth inning, allowing one walk while striking out a batter in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Yankees. Tasked with protecting a 4-2 lead in the top of the ninth, Moore worked around a one-out walk and pitched a scoreless frame, notching a save. The save was his sixth of the year and second in as many days. Moore will finish the 2022 campaign with a 1.95 ERA and 1.18 WHIP while striking out 83 batters over 74 innings in 63 appearances with the Rangers.

  • Rangers' Matt Moore: Notches fourth save

    Moore struck out two in a perfect ninth inning to record his fourth save of the season in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Yankees. Jose Leclerc hasn't pitched since Sept. 29, but he remained in the bullpen while Moore got the call to secure a split of the twin bill for the Rangers. The veteran lefty has been outstanding in a relief role this year, and since the beginning of September he's posted a 2.08 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 16:5 K:BB through 13 innings. Moore is also a free agent in the offseason, and the 33-year-old could land a big contract to fill a high-leverage role for another team given his 2022 numbers.
