Here's the latest on the Rays as they continue their late push for the AL Wild Card...
- Joe Maddon said left-hander Matt Moore is "a possibility" to be called up later this month, tweets Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times. The Rays will need an extra starter after they play a doubleheader against the Yankees on September 21. Besides Moore, southpaw Alex Torres is also being considered for the role. Moore is the consensus top pitching prospect in baseball and one of the top-rated prospects overall --- Baseball Prospectus and Keith Law had Moore ranked second behind only Bryce Harper, while Baseball America ranked Moore third behind Harper and Mike Trout.
- Also from Topkin, the Rays will need to make a move on the 40-man roster to make room for Russ Canzler, the International League MVP. Canzler and right-hander Dane De La Rosa will both be called up to Tampa Bay on Sunday.
- Earlier today, MLBTR's Mike Axisa looked at how Casey Kotchman's breakout season will impact his stock on the free agent market.
