RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Moore’s season lasted just two games, as he walked off the mound in Kansas City in early April with what the team hoped was just forearm tightness. In fact, he had torn his UCL and was done for the season. Given the Rays’ traditional conservative ways, it is unlikely Moore retakes the mound in Tampa Bay before Father's Day. When pitchers come back from Tommy John surgery, the control of their pitches is usually the last thing that comes back and that’s not good for a pitcher whose walk rate was already below average. He is not going to get 20 starts in 2015 and the starts he does get are not likely to be smooth in the early going. Mixed league players would be wise to let others take the chance on the name while those in AL-only leagues should look for Moore in the endgame.

2014

In his second full season as a starter with the Rays, Moore launched forward as one of the top left-handers in the American League. He finished the season with a 17-4 record and a 3.29 ERA and was selected to his first All-Star game. He missed August with soreness in his throwing elbow, but was able to come back strong in September and the postseason. His fastball velocity was lower in 2013, but he still dealt with walk problems and led the major leagues in wild pitches. He has a respectable 8.6 K/9 rate and he locked down when runners were in scoring position, only allowing hitters to manage .200/.299/.282 in that situation. Though it may be difficult to repeat the incredible winning percentage, the 24-year-old Moore will be one of the top starters for the Rays and he will be a player to target on draft day.

2013

Many expected Moore to be a Rookie of the Year candidate after his late season heroics for Tampa Bay in 2011 that included a spot in the postseason rotation. Tampa Bay was so confident in his future that they signed him to a five-year, $15 million contract extension to buy out his arbitration years before the season began. Moore struggled with a 4.76 ERA and 4.5 BB/9 in his first 10 starts which ended most of his rookie hoopla. However, he made adjustments and improved his slider, which led him to post a 3.36 ERA and 117:53 K:BB ratio in 120.2 innings after May 28. The lefty's big fastball hovers in the mid-90s and is mixed with a solid slider and changeup that give him big potential to be a future strikeout champ. If he can build on his second half and avoid the free passes that plagued his first half, Moore has a chance to live up to last year's preseason hype and become one of the top starters in the AL.

2012

Moore started the season at Double-A Montgomery where he dominated the Southern League, including the first no-hitter in the league since Tommy Hanson's. Moore was even better after his July promotion to Triple-A Durham where he sported a 1.37 ERA over nine starts (52.2 innings) with a 79:18 K:BB rate. Moore received his first major league start against the Yankees in the Bronx in September and tossed five scoreless innings, striking out 11 for his first win. Moore went on to pitch Game 1 of the ALDS and threw seven shutout innings in Arlington against the Rangers as the Rays won 9-0. The big question heading into this season is where Moore fits in the Rays' plans. Conventional wisdom would say he'd have a spot in the rotation, even if the Rays go with a six-man rotation. A trade of one of the returning five starters would help clear up this picture and a spot in the rotation would likely make him the front-runner for ROY in the American League. He signed a five-year, $15 million contract in December, so the Rays may have already tipped their hand he'll be in the starting rotation in April. Don't be afraid to be aggressive in drafting the him, the sky is the limit.

2011

After a slow start at High-A Charlotte, Moore not only figured things out, he had one of the best seasons for a minor league pitcher in 2010. Over the first half of the season he had a 6.08 ERA and struck out 78 batters in 60.2 innings. The second half was a complete 180, as he held a 1.39 ERA while striking out 130 over 84 innings (a 13.9 K/9IP mark). Moore was the first minor leaguer to eclipse 200-strikeout mark in the last five years (when some guy named Francisco Liriano did it). Moore will likely begin the season at Double-A Montgomery and should make it to Durham by season's end. Grab him if your keeper league has a minor league system and look for him to be with the Rays by mid-to-late 2012.

2010

Moore might be the next big pitching arm to come up through the Rays' farm system. He struck out a whopping 176 batters in only 123 innings for Low-A Bowling Green. He'll likely start the year at High-A Charlotte and is a nice late pick in leagues with deep minor league reserves.
