Matt Moore allowed six earned runs, nine hits and a walk with four strikeouts over four innings in a loss Saturday at Colorado.
The southpaw is struggling out of the gate, failing to last longer than 5 2/3 innings in three of his four outings. Walks have been an issue, as he has yielded six free passes over 23 innings and he had a problem keeping the ball in the yard Saturday. He has served up five homers over his past 17 2/3 innings. As such he is only worth a look in NL-only play right now. He faces another uphill battle when the Dodgers visit on Thursday afternoon. Apr 23 - 1:38 AM

Matt Moore gave up 10 hits and five runs over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Rockies on Saturday.

Moore also walked three in the outing, so he was actually somewhat fortunate to allow only the five runs. He also struck out five. The 27-year-old now has one stellar start and two forgettable ones on the year, leaving him with a 4.26 ERA and 1.37 WHIP through three starts. His life doesn't get any easier next weekend, when the Giants visit these same Rockies in Colorado.
Apr 15 - 9:32 PM

Matt Moore held the Diamondbacks to one run in eight innings Monday as the Giants earned a 4-1 victory.

Moore gave up a solo home run to Yasmany Tomas in the top of the fifth inning but was otherwise brilliant, yielding just three total hits while striking out five. He did not issue a walk. The left-hander stands 1-1 with a 2.71 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, and 8/2 K/BB ratio through his first two starts covering 13 1/3 innings. A home date with the Rockies is next.
Apr 10 - 7:44 PM

Matt Moore failed to hold an early lead in Wednesday's loss to the Diamondbacks, yielding six runs (three earned) on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Moore struck out three and walked two on the evening. Chris Owings managed an RBI single against him in the third inning, but it was the fifth inning when things truly went off the rails. In that frame, a two-run fielding error by Brandon Belt drew the Diamondbacks to within 4-3, after which Yasmany Tomas came through with a game-tying RBI double. The Diamondbacks would uncoil for two more runs in the sixth to polish off the scoring on Moore's line. He posted a 4.08 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 178/72 K/BB ratio over 198 1/3 frames last season. His next scheduled start will come (once again) against the Diamondbacks, though Moore will be playing host in that one.
Apr 6 - 1:03 AM

Matt Moore allowed just two hits over five innings in Saturday's Cactus League date with the Mariners.

Moore looked in midseason form for this one, striking out four and walking one on the afternoon. He has now blanked the opposition in two of his last three starts after struggling out of the spring gates. He is worth fantasy consideration in both mixed and NL-only formats.
Mar 18 - 7:13 PM

Matt Moore gave up two earned runs in four innings Sunday in his Cactus League start against the Diamondbacks.

A.J. Pollock led off the game with a solo home run, one of five hits for the D'Backs against Moore. The left-hander also walked two and struck out just one. Moore has struggled in three of his four Cactus League appearances this spring, but it's not necessarily a concern. He is locked into a starting rotation spot with pretty good fantasy upside.
Mar 12 - 5:21 PM

Matt Moore tossed three shutout innings Tuesday in his Cactus League start against the Dodgers.

Moore walked two and gave up three hits but struck out five. It was a refreshing turn for the 27-year-old left-hander, who struggled badly in his first two Cactus League outings. He registered a 4.08 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, and 178/72 K/BB ratio in 198 1/3 innings last summer between the Rays and Giants.
Mar 7 - 6:19 PM

Matt Moore struggled against the White Sox on Thursday, surrendering four runs in 2 2/3 innings.

He gave up five hits and two walks while striking out two. He is guaranteed a spot in the Giants' rotation if healthy, so this one bad outing doesn't mean much in the big picture. The left-hander had a 4.08 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 33 starts with the Rays and Giants last year.
Mar 2 - 11:44 PM

Matt Moore didn't make it out of the second inning in his Cactus League debut Sunday versus the Reds.

Moore struck out two batters in a scoreless first, but Scott Schebler drew a walk to open the second and the Reds rattled off four hits in a row against Giants reliever Matt Reynolds -- with one of the four Cincinnati runs being charged to Moore. He officially went 1 1/3 innings, yielding two walks and one hit against three strikeouts. Moore is locked into a spot in the San Francisco rotation.
Feb 26 - 4:40 PM

Giants exercised their $7 million club option on LHP Matt Moore.

Moore was acquired from the Rays at the August 1 trade deadline and posted a 4.08 ERA over his final 68 1/3 regular-season innings with San Francisco before rattling off eight innings of one-run ball in Game 4 of the NLDS against the Cubs. The left-hander is locked into a rotation spot with the Giants leading into 2017 and may carry sneaky fantasy value.

Matt Moore struck out 10 batters over eight innings and limited the Cubs to two hits, but the Giants lost Game 4 of the NLDS on Tuesday night at AT&T Park.

Moore gave up a solo homer and RBI sac fly to David Ross, but he stymied the rest of the Cubs' lineup and left the game with the Giants leading 5-2 after eight fantastic innings. San Francisco's bullpen blew it with a four-run ninth, throwing five different relievers at the unreachable save. The loss halts the Giants' run of postseason elimination game victories at 10. There will not be an even-year World Series for San Francisco in 2016.

Matt Moore fired eight innings of one-run baseball to beat the Dodgers 7-1 on Sunday and lead the Giants into the Wild Card game.

He gave up an RBI single to Yasmani Grandal in the fourth inning but that was all the Dodgers could muster against him tonight. He allowed just three base hits -- all singles. He struck out six and walked two in the gem. He finishes the regular season at 13-12 with a 4.08 ERA in 33 starts with the Rays and Giants. He was maddeningly inconsistent at times. He punched out 178 batters in 198 1/3 innings.

Matt Moore was phenomenal in Tuesday's 12-3 romp-of-a-win against the Rockies, striking out 11 while allowing one run on six hits over 7 2/3 innings.

This was peak Matt Moore. Not only did he strike out 11, he failed to walk a batter in the win. Moore had the luxury of an offensive surge from the Giants and held a 6-1 advantage after five innings. That lead would only grow as the game wandered into the later innings. Since coming over to the Giants from the Rays at the trade deadline, Moore has been something of a mixed bag, pitching to a mediocre 4.48 ERA and 1.43 WHIP over 60 1/3 innings, but counteracting that by degrees with several brilliant starts in the vain of Tuesday's. He is currently scheduled to start Sunday's regular-season finale against the Dodgers.
Wed, Sep 28, 2016 01:24:00 AM

Matt Moore was lit up for six runs in one-plus innings by the Dodgers on Wednesday.

It was a disaster; Moore faced 11 batters and nine reaches base safely (seven hits, one walk, one HBP). It was also the polar opposite of his previous outing at Dodger Stadium, when he came within one out of a no-hitter on Aug. 25. As per usual, he's been up and down since joining the Giants. In his 10 starts, he's allowed two runs or fewer six times and five runs or more three times.

Matt Moore allowed two runs over five innings Friday against the Cardinals.

It's nothing special, but it was good enough for a win after the Giants exploded for six runs in the third tonight. Moore allowed seven hits, walked three and struck out four. He's 11-11 with a 4.06 ERA overall. He'll get the Dodgers next.
