Rays announce Matt Moore's Tommy John surgery was successful.
Lot of good that does fantasy owners this year and while most all pitchers are able to successfully comeback from TJ surgery Moore makes for an interesting case as he already had enormous difficulty controlling his pitches prior to a surgery that usually leads to control issues, at least early on. So while some may suggest to buy low on Moore in dynasty and keeper leagues I am not one of them.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Joakim Soria will throw a bullpen session Thursday.
Soria was acquired last season by the Tigers as an insurance policy for the struggling Joe Nathan but he found himself getting injured just six games after being acquired which forced him to miss more than a month. In 13 games with the Tigers last season Soria went 1-1 with a 4.91 ERA after posting a 2.70 ERA with the Rangers prior to the trade. The Tigers expect Nathan to be their closer heading into the season which will mean Soria will once again be in a set up role. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
