Rays place LHP Moore on DL with elbow injury

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Matt Moore was placed on the 15-day disabled list with an elbow injury and will see Dr. James Andrews for further exams after an MRI exam was inconclusive.

Rays general manager Andrew Friedman said Moore would see Dr. Andrews in the next two days for “a more thorough exam.”

Moore left in the fifth inning Monday night with discomfort in his elbow after throwing a changeup to Kansas City Royals right fielder Nori Aoki.

Friedman says it is “standard practice” for the team to put a pitcher on the DL go to these situations.

Moore won 17 games last season, but also missed 31 games with a sore elbow.

The Rays recalled left-hander Jeff Beliveau from Triple-A Durham.
