Matt Moore said he opted for surgery because he didn't think rehab would get his elbow back to 100 percent this season.
None of this should come as any surprise to you as I've been saying it over and over again since he first suffered the injury and the MRI turned up a small tear in his UCL. Rest and rehab doesn't help this injury. We are not starfish and we do not regenerate new ligaments in our elbow when we tear them. It was silly for the Rays to drag out the decision and even sillier for fantasy owners to have to sit and hold him for a week when we knew surgery was going to be the next course of action. Re-draft league owners can ditch him completely. Keeper/dynasty league owners can stash him away until he's ready during the second half of the 2015 season.ANALYST: Howard Bender
The Mariners and Marlins are discussing a trade that would send Marcell Ozuna to Seattle.
After hitting 23 home runs in his first full season in 2013, Ozuna disappointed with just 10 home runs in 494 PA in 2014. His HR/FB rate fell back to around league average last year, which obviously killed his value. But he did cut his strikeout rate down from the mid-20's to the low-20's and he'll just be 25 this season, so there'a a chance for a bounce back. Unfortunately a move to Seattle wouldn't represent an upgrade in home park, but at least it's a lateral move from Miami. Analysis: Brett Talley
