Mariners catcher Adam Moore, a former top prospect who missed nearly all of last season with a knee injury suffered in his second game, broke his right wrist Tuesday when a ball in the dirt struck his throwing hand.
There’s no word yet on how long the Mariners expect Moore to be sidelined, but he’s obviously out for the remainder of spring training and potentially could miss a big chunk of the regular season.
Moore was unlikely to make the Opening Day roster anyway because of Miguel Olivo‘s presence and the Mariners’ offseason trades for John Jaso and Jesus Montero. Once healthy Moore will likely spend a third season at Triple-A, where the 27-year-old has hit .302 with a .789 OPS. He’s batted just .197 in 68 games as a big leaguer.
