Rays Pitcher Matt Moore to Have Season-Ending Elbow Surgery

See also

Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Matt Moore is done for the season after electing to have surgery to replace a torn ligament in his left elbow. Moore made the decision after throwing a ball on Monday and realizing that he felt pain on every pitch. The injury was likely sustained on April 7th in Kansas City when Moore left the mound complaining of elbow soreness during a game against the Royals.

The loss of Moore will weigh heavily on the Rays who have already had to place pitchers Jeremy Hellickson and Alex Cobb on the disabled list with arm injuries. Lefty Erik Bedard will fill in Moore's spot in the rotation for now. He will be the 8th different pitcher Tampa Bay has started this year.

Moore was 0-2 with a 2.70 ERA through two starts this season.
