From Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times comes word that Rays left-hander Matt Moore played catch Monday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery back in April. Moore made around 25 throws from a distance of 50 feet, and Topkin says the 25-year-old had a “big smile on his face” after the successful workout.

It’s the first major step in a long road back for Moore, who prior to blowing out his elbow had emerged as one of the best young pitchers in baseball.

He doesn’t quite carry the profile of a Kris Medlen or Jose Fernandez or A.J. Griffin or Matt Moore, but you can add Astros reliever Jose Cisnero to the long list of young pitchers requiring Tommy John surgery. CSN Houston’s Julia Morales reports that Cisnero is scheduled to undergo the reconstructive elbow procedure next week in Texas.

Rays starter Alex Cobb shut out the Reds for seven innings in Saturday’s 1-0 win and has now gone 15 1/3 innings without allowing a run. But it’s going to be a while before he can try to extend that streak.

The Rays make an alteration to their starting rotation sans Matt Moore and add a veteran to their bullpen.

In the fourth inning of Sunday afternoon’s start against the Red Sox, Matt Moore took a comebacker to the face off of the bat of Xander Bogaerts. Moore appeared to at least partially deflect the ball and had the presence of mind to chase after the ball and throw out Bogaerts at first base to…

The Rays used 22 of their 25 players in Tuesday’s loss, and they were one inning away from turning to their Game 5 starter. Still, no matter how much Joe Maddon maneuvered, there was no outgunning the Red Sox this week. It was plenty close. The Rays got the break they needed in the second…

Rays right-hander Jeremy Hellickson had a clean 12-pitch first inning in this ALDS Game 4 in Tampa Bay, but he allowed back-to-back walks to David Ortiz and Mike Napoli to open the top of the second and then a Daniel Nava single loaded the bases and abruptly drove the Rays starter from the game. It’s…

With the ability to start David Price twice and Alex Cobb once in the next four games, the Rays aren’t sunk after dropping Game 1 to Boston on Friday. The Red Sox, though, seemed pretty unbeatable today with the offense in sync despite four days off and Jon Lester limiting the damage besides a couple…

Technically, the Rays went errorless in Friday’s 12-2 loss to the Red Sox. Which just further demonstrates how silly judging things based on errors can be. After three innings without allowing a hit, Matt Moore gave up a Dustin Pedroia single to start the fourth with the Rays up 2-0. David Ortiz followed with a…
