Mariners Designate Adam Moore For Assignment

The Mariners have designated catcher Adam Moore for assignment, the team announced. The move was made to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for pitcher Josh Kinney. In a corresponding move, the Mariners placed pitcher Erasmo Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow flexor strain.

Moore, a former sixth round selection of the Mariners in the 2006 draft, has had two stints on the disabled list this season. The most recent was for his second surgery in two years to repair a medial meniscus tear in his right knee. Moore has not appeared in a game for Mariners this season, but has played 24 games for Triple-A Tacoma with a batting line of .209/.247/.372. In his three-year major league career spanning 68 games, Moore has hit .197/.231/.295 with a caught stealing rate of 17%.

Adam could never catch a break, i feel like the Mariners never got to see what he could really do. He was always landing on the DL or not getting playing time and not to mention in 2010 he had to experience playing with one of the worst offenses the MLB has ever seen. There’s no doubt about it that Adam Moore should have got more playing time then Rob Johnson back when he was called up.

It hurts being a Mariners fan and knowing just how high this guy’s ceiling was. Could’ve been something special, unfortunately his career was marred by injuries. Tough break. Wish him well.

How the heck do you DFA an Adam Moore before a Yeonis Medina? This makes no sense. Sure w/Zunino in town taking his physical it’s just another block for Moore. That’s OK. Moore will get grabbed by a real MLB franchise and have a great career. Yeonis Medina?!?! Mother!

I wish we could have seem more from him, but he was mishandled. And it became obvious he wasn’t ever going to be apart of the Mariners future when they kept shelving him in AAA instead of giving him MLB at bats that he deserved over Rob Johnson.

I wasn’t your biggest fan, never would have been had you panned out, but good luck Moore.
