MLB: Rays’ Moore to miss season
BALTIMORE (AP) — Tampa Bay left-hander Matt Moore will miss the remainder of the season after opting to have elbow-ligament replacement surgery.
Dr. James Andrews is to operate next week on the 24-year-old pitcher, who made the AL All-Star team last year.
Moore hasn’t pitched since walking off the mound with elbow soreness on April 7 in Kansas City. He was placed on the disabled list the following day.
• CHICAGO (AP) — Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia had a cortisone injection in his left wrist and hopes to return to Boston’s starting lineup tonight. He was injured April 4 when Milwaukee’s Carlos Gomez broke up a double play at second base. Pedroia is hitting .139 (5-for-36) since then with one RBI, leaving his season average at .236. He missed Sunday’s series finale at the Yankees.
