Matt Moore (elbow) could begin a throwing program soon.

Moore underwent Tommy John surgery in April. Even if he started a throwing program at some point soon, he won't be ready for spring training. That would put it at less than a full year for recovery which is just ludicrous. In fact, given the number of injuries that have occurred to guys trying to come back too soon, it wouldn't surprise anyone if the Rays played it extra safe and targeted something like mid-season as opposed to trying to rush him back. Tommy John himself took two years to make it back. Yes, medical science has evolved since then, but the human body is still the human body and we didn't suddenly evolve in 35 years to develop the ability to heal faster from this procedure. Leave that for the Wolverine movies.
