Matt Moore surrendered four runs on eight hits in a four-inning rehab start on Thursday night at Triple-A Durham, but the Rays are going to stick with their plan and activate him to start Tuesday evening against the Angels in Anaheim. This according to beat writer Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.

Moore hasn’t pitched in the bigs since July 28 due to left elbow soreness, but the 24-year-old southpaw is claiming to be healthy now and the Rays will need him to give them some positive results right away.

Tampa Bay entered play Sunday trailing the Red Sox by 4 1/2 games in the American League East standings.

Moore has a 3.62 ERA and 305 strikeouts in 308 career major league innings.
