Rays left-hander Matt Moore was sidelined for over a week due to an abdominal strain that he suffered during a fielding drill. But that’s all in the past now.
Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that Moore tossed a free and easy bullpen session on Saturday in Rays camp and told reporters shortly after the workout that he felt “real good.”
“It was like back to normal,” added the 22-year-old.
Moore is a near-lock for a starting rotation spot this season in Tampa Bay after registering a dominant 1.92 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 210/46 K/BB ratio across 155 innings last year between Double-A Montgomery and Triple-A Durham. He eventually climbed his way to the major leagues in September and was even trusted with a start in the ALDS against the Rangers, in which he hurled seven scoreless frames.
