Andrew Moore allowed four runs on six hits, one walk, and two strikeouts through 4 2/3 innings on Tuesday against Houston.
Moore struggled in his first outing of the season. He recorded a 5.34 ERA and 1.15 WHIP through 59 innings last season, he's not a recommended option.
Andrew Moore (1-5) allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits over four innings, and was tagged with the loss in Seattle's 11-4 defeat to the Indians on Saturday. He struck out three and walked none.
Moore has done an admirable job filling in as a member of the Mariners' depleted rotation. In his three September starts coming into tonight's game, the 23-year-old right-hander recorded a fine 3.24 ERA and 0.84 WHIP over 16 2/3 innings. However his 2017 campaign's 5.34 ERA and meager 4.7 K/9 illustrate the true limitations of Moore's fantasy value. He is scheduled to make his last start of the season on Friday against the Angels in Anaheim.
Andrew Moore will start Sunday's game against the Astros in Houston in lieu of Ariel Miranda, who was bumped from the rotation.
After only giving up one run on one hit and one walk, while striking out seven over six innings in a relief role on Monday against Texas, Moore has been immediately inserted back into the rotation. Only last Sunday it was declared that Moore had lost his starting role. "Certainly we'll look at him possibly sliding into the rotation for us in that spot [Miranda's] moving forward," manager Scott Servais said. "He was awesome. I can't say enough about the job he did. He's got plenty left in his tank, which is great to see from a young guy at this time of the year." However, with a 5.36 ERA and 4.8 K/9, fantasy owners should exercise caution before inserting Moore into their lineups.
Andrew Moore, who was originally scheduled to start against the Rangers in Arlington on Tuesday, will instead be replaced by Marco Gonzales in the rotation.
After posting a 1-3 record with a 5.89 ERA and unpalatable 4.1 K/9 over 44.1 innings in eight appearances, Moore's removal from the rotation should come as no surprise. The Oregon State alumnus most likely will have a role in long relief for the remainder of the season.
Andrew Moore allowed two runs on three hits while walking two and striking out three over six innings in Seattle's 5-3 loss to the Astros on Wednesday. He did not factor into the decision
Moore exited the game with a chance to earn the win, but the Mariner bullpen was unable to protect Seattle's 3-2 lead. It was the 23-year-old righty's first quality start since July 8, and his second consecutive start without allowing a home run. However, with his unpalatable 2.2 HR/9, 4.1 K/9 and 5.89 ERA, fantasy owners who insert Moore into their lineups should do so at their own risk. His next scheduled start is Tuesday against the Rangers in Arlington.
