The Rays will designate catcher Adam Moore for assignment, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports (Twitter link). The transaction will create room for newly-acquired catcher Michael Perez to join the Rays’ roster tomorrow.
Moore ended up playing just one game for the Rays after his contract was selected by the team earlier this week. That one game marked Moore’s first MLB action since 2016, as 2017 was the only season within the last decade that Moore didn’t get at least a cup of coffee in the Show. Moore only has 97 games and 295 PA to his big league resume, though the well-traveled veteran has seen time with the Mariners, Royals, Padres, and Indians before suiting up for the Rays.
The 34-year-old Moore has a .534 career OPS as a Major Leaguer. He signed a minor league deal with Tampa Bay last winter, and it looks like a decent chance Moore will clear waivers and remain in the organization as Triple-A catching depth.
