Since returning from the disabled list after undergoing Tommy John surgery Matt Moore has struggled, which has led the Tampa Bay Rays to go 2-6 in his starts this season. The Rays open a four-game series with the Baltimore Orioles Thursday night at Tropicana Field.
In eight starts this season, Moore has posted a massive 8.42 ERA with a 1.93 WHIP. The left-hander has also not once pitched more than five complete innings in a game this year.
The Orioles are going to send a struggling pitcher to the mound as well Thursday, with Chris Tillman expected to take the bump. Tillman has posted an ERA of 7.97 in his past seven starts, with the O’s going just 1-6 in those contests.
