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.

    Damn! Dude was on fire in ST continuing a hot final half of the AFL. Too bad for the guy. He seems snakebit

    Wow- without reading the article and judging from that picture, I’m going to guess that he broke his wrist patting King Felix on the butt. That guy must work out.
