Matt Moore is expected to be placed on the disabled list with elbow soreness.
There has been no official announcement from the Rays as of yet but it looks like Jeff Beliveau will be called up from Triple-A Durham to provide bullpen depth. Erik Bedard would be the obvious replacement in the rotation. Moore had to leave his start on Monday night against the Royals with left elbow soreness. He is scheduled to have an MRI today.ANALYST: Drew Phelps
There were rumblings during the spring that Moore was having elbow difficulties and that his velocity was down. Now we have confirmation and dare I say that I warned a number of you of this on Twitter during the month of March. He'll head to the DL now and the Rays will have to evaluate him after some time off. Is Tommy John surgery a possibility? Um, yeah. I'd say so.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Corey Dickerson was scratched Wednesday because of reoccurring lower back tightness.
This is not news any Dickerson owners wanted to see as we approach opening day. Dickerson is a popular early round pick following his breakout 2014 campaign where he hit .312 with 74 runs, 24 home runs, 76 RBI and eight stolen bases over 131 games. While he was scratched a precautionary measure many fantasy players know that back problems can linger throughout the season and the word reoccurring is never a good thing when talking about an injury concern.

Red Sox announce that Christian Vazquez will undergo Tommy John surgery on Thursday.
This is disappointing news for Vazquez who was slated to be the Red Sox starting catcher as he entered his first full season in the majors. Even more damaging to Vazquez is the fact that Blake Swihart who is the No.1 ranked catching prospect in baseball is playing at the Triple-A level for the Red Sox this season and will likely end up surpassing him on the depth chart while he recovers from Tommy John. To enter the season Ryan Hanigan will likely see the majority of starts behind the plate for the Red Sox. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
