Moore threw all of his pitches in the session and said he was "pleased". This was Moore's second session and he's scheduled to throw another one on Wednesday, after which President of Baseball Operations Matt Silverman will decide whether Moore will pitch another session, or embark on a rehab assignment.

Fantasy Impact: Moore is expected to be back sometime in June in his recovery from Tommy John Surgery. This is still a young pitcher with electric stuff so if you have an open DL spot in your mixed league, you might want to take a look.

Matt Moore will face live hitters on Sunday for the first time since getting Tommy John surgery. Barring any setbacks, Moore is hoping to rejoin the Rays starting rotation around mid-June. "It definitely feels more real now," Moore said. "In spring training it was one feeling, now it's more of a right-around-the-corner type feeling." (Source: cbssports.com)
Fantasy Impact: This is a good sign for the Rays that Moore is getting closer to making his debut. When healthy Moore has the potential to be a top of the rotation pitcher. In 2013 he went 17-4 with a 3.29 ERA and was forced out with injury after two starts in 2014.

Fantasy Impact: The Rays are historically very cautious with their pitchers, so look for Moore to be brought along slowly and likely more toward the end of the month.
