RAYS PITCHERS CONTINUE TO FALL TO INJURIES.

Matt Moore will undergo Tommy John surgery, reports Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. The young hurler said that he decided to have the procedure after experiencing discomfort while throwing this afternoon. "What was coming out, it's a shame to be have to be shut down right now but it just wasn't comfortable," Moore said. "Being stuck in the position I am right now, where it's not exactly comfortable but it's not exactly completely broke, it's kind of one of those things where you know it's going to get worse."

They were saying rehabbing the injury only had a 12% success rate.

He took the money right?

Kind of. He agreed to a 5 year $14M (total) deal in his rookie year it looks like. Pretty amazing in retrospect that the Rays could get him for that. That deal runs through 2016 and then they also have club options through 2019 that never exceed $10M per year.

Man the Rays really know how to work a roster.

I had the Rays winning the AL East this year but now? Not so sure. They're on thin ice and need Cobb to fire on all cylinders when he gets back.

David Price

Alex Cobb --> Erik Bedard

Matt Moore --> Cesar Ramos

Chris Archer

Jake Odorizzi

Remember Jeremy Hellickson is on the DL as well. Moore, Cobb and Hellickson would be a big chuck of a pretty good rotation.

For years, the Rays have had the lowest injury rate of any team in the AL East. Their number was due to come up sooner or later.

God forbid Price gets injured before he is traded. They have to be think of this.

That meant they paid him five times what he would have made for his first three years. With paying him half as much as he Could have made in arbitration.

The option years are probably cheap as well

The Tampa Bay Rays have reached agreement with rookie pitcher Matt Moore on a guaranteed five-year, $14 million contract, the team announced Friday afternoon.

The deal includes three club options and could extend to eight years for $39.75 million and buy out two years of Moore's free agency, a source said. It includes escalator clauses based on innings pitched and games started that could raise the overall value to $40 million.

He was an eighth round draft choice.

Ask Tommy Hanson if he's have like that deal.

THANKS SCOTT!

What am I missing here? Running joke? 12% success rate and Tommy John Surgery is not registering with me.

You need to read more closely is all, I wasn't referring to having surgery in that post.

If you choose to rehab the tear, rather then have the surgery, the success rate is about 12%. The was the path that Moore hoped to take.

    • I feel bad for Hays because in any other time except for right now he would be a valuable player for the Orioles. Hays is now what McKenna was the last few seasons for this team. I hope Hays can land on a new team where he will get the chance to play everyday.
    • Damn, these boys are entertaining. I watch every game, every night. I am so frustrated when they do almost nothing offensively until the last third of the game, and then they somehow find a way to throw a switch and make the game...theirs. I'm sure this pattern is not sustainable...the alchemy that turns coal into a diamond..and makes gold bricks out of fools gold.But in the last year and the start of this one, this team has to be one of the most beguiling teams in the game. EVERY player seems to be able to step up in any moment, and soon, when he gets his feet under him ,Jackson Holliday will too. It's just a matter of time. Like most , if not all of you, I've suffered  as a fan watching this team in rebuild, and almost dropped my MLBTV subscription because a few seasons ago they were unwatchable. But boy, this team is not only compelling, and heart stopping to watch...I literally cant wait for game time every day. Look, rooting for any sports team is like early romance. You are attracted by all the positives...but then, somehow, reality sets in and often the romance is filled with disappointment, and then disdain at being  "betrayed" by flaws and foible. I know I may sing a different tune and be filled with frustration and anger at a "underachieving " club eventually. It will happen. It's not me being fickle. It's me expecting perfection every night.Its unrealistic, I know. But for now, for this stretch...I have the budding romance and a love for these boys and their ability as any time since...well, since last year. THESE BOYS ARE FUN TO WATCH. ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?
    • In the past we had very little talent. today we have too much. what a problem to have.
    • Does Jackson profile as a pull-heavy hitter or more of an all-fields guy? In my head he was more all-fields because of his high batting average potential, but his swing this week and in spring training looks more pull-focused to me. 
    • As far as Bradfield goes, I most certainly believe you! The kid has an 80 speed and defense scouting grade. Cowser has look very good in LF. I understand that there could be an offensive upgrade. But there will be a serious defensive downgrade IMO. Cedric Mullins is one of the few elite defensive CFs in baseball. Not only will be downgrading defensively to Cowser bu then we will be downgrading in LF from Cowser to Kjerstad. IMO that trade off is not worth it especially in an OF as big as Camden from left to center now.
    • I will admit, as a 60 year old, that I thought I had pretty much seen the only great Oriole teams I was gonna see. I thoroughly enjoyed 96-97 but PA messed that up. And 12-16 was awesome but it always seemed like we were just short.    60’s-early 80’s, we expected to be good most years. In the way that Yankee fans do today.    One thing I’d like to remind everyone. If I could go back and tell my young self anything about those days it would be this.    Appreciate this time and enjoy it. Yes losing in the WS in ‘79 hurt but it was absolute heaven compared to the dark run of 14 years of total suckitude.    This is a great time. We have a fantastic team, likeable players, a pretty damn good manager, one of the games best GMs, one of the best farm systems and we hope to find out we have one of the games best owners.     Im not saying fans shouldn’t fan. Everyone should feel free to complain about whatever. But, don’t forget to enjoy this. Because it’s not guaranteed. No matter what we think the future holds.    I am certain when Cal Ripken, Jr caught the final out in the 1983 World Series, he thought it was the first of many titles. I know I did.    I was wrong. And I intend to enjoy every game of this. Win or lose. And feeling that way has made me almost laugh in these late inning comebacks like last night.    Yes we will lose on an errant throw from Gunner occasionally. But I believe in this organization and I think it is finally driving in the right direction.    It’s a great time to be an Oriole fan and I can’t wait to use my ticket plan to see my first game of the year on 4/29 against the MF Skankees.     
    • Totally, up until this last draft it seems like the philosophy was that pitchers have way more volatility so might as well hope you hit on the later picks. This past draft they used a lot more draft capital on pitchers throughout the whole draft so chances are probably improved that one will work out nicely.
