Mariners right-hander Andrew Moore has passed through waivers and has been outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma, according to Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times. The move leaves the Mariners with 38 players on the 40-man roster.
Moore has made only one start for Seattle this year, lasting 4 2/3 innings and conceding four runs. He was a waiver claim from the Giants back in May, and has spent his time pitching in the upper minors since then. He’ll remain in the Mariners organization, but will no longer be part of the 40-man roster.
Still just 25 years old, Moore was a second-round draft choice of the Mariners back in 2015. He debuted in the Majors with the team in 2017 and bounced around between Tampa Bay and San Francisco before finding himself back with the M’s. He’s got only 12 MLB games under his belt—ten of them starts—and the results haven’t been there to this point, with Moore averaging just 4.7 strikeouts per nine innings while surrendering home runs at an alarming rate.
Almost an hour and no comments from M’s fans with their trade speculations?
M’s don’t need roster spots for trades when they will be moving veterans. This is most likely to create a spot to bring Tui off the 60 day DL and possibly to add someone that’s not on the 40 man in order to bring them up. I would hope that perhaps they are going to finally give Ian Miller a shot.
Looks like you’re the only one speculating!
I speculate the BP is awful.
dipoto is going to find someone to trade soon, or he’ll trade himself for a PTBNL and then head back to Seattle as the PTBNL just to keep himself sharp.
LOL………….GMTBNL for GMTBNL and cash (covers the plane fare)…
