RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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.
