Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports that Rays left-hander Matt Moore underwent Tommy John reconstructive surgery, as scheduled, Tuesday on his pitching elbow. The procedure was conducted by Dr. James Andrews and deemed a success.

Moore is likely to be sidelined through the first month of the 2015 season. The 24-year-old boasts a 3.53 ERA and 8.8 K/9 in 347 career major league innings.

He is under contract with the Rays until 2020.

    Sucks. Hate to see any young talented pitcher’s season end early, even when he pitches for one of the rivals of my favorite team. Hoping for a quick and successful return.

    This may hurt the Rays, tuff to replace a good pitcher. Additionally, you never want to see such a young promising talent get hurt. But at-lest he should have a good chance to come back and enjoy a long career.
