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.
