Now witness the firepower of this fully ARMED and OPERATIONAL Matt Moore!

[Rays GM Andrew] Friedman said rookie LHP Matt Moore’s innings will be watched but don’t have to be limited because he’s been “built up in a pretty systematic way” in the minors.

Moore has one regular season major league start, but he had 201 strikeouts in 155 minor league innings last year and his promise is outstanding.

I don’t pretend to truly know whether babying young pitchers works or not, but selfishly speaking, I’m looking forward to seeing this kid pitch 200 innings.

    Craig, if we can get “The Death Star” to stick as a nickname for Matt Moore, we can both go to our graves knowing we accomplished something worthwhile.
