Tyler Moore slugged a three-run homer in the Marlins' defeat of the Braves on Sunday.
Moore gave Miami the lead for good with his pinch-hit drive over the left-center field fence in the bottom of the seventh inning. The 30-year-old utilityman entered play Sunday with a .230/.281/.401 career batting line at the major league level. He's not fantasy-relevant. May 14 - 3:48 PM

Marlins purchased the contract of 1B/OF Tyler Moore from Triple-A New Orleans.

Moore was outrighted off the 40-man roster last month, but he's back now that Martin Prado and Miguel Rojas are on the disabled list. The 30-year-old will serve as a right-handed bat off the bench and possible platoon partner for Justin Bour at first base.
May 9 - 3:13 PM

Marlins sent 1B/OF Tyler Moore outright to Triple-A New Orleans.

Moore had been designated for assignment, but he cleared waivers and will remain in the organization. He'll represent depth.
Apr 21 - 5:54 PM

Marlins designated 1B/OF Tyler Moore for assignment.

The move clears the way for Martin Prado's return from the disabled list. Moore, who made the Opening Day roster out of spring training, was 4-for-11 (.364) with a double to begin the year. He could draw some interest as a bench bat.
Apr 17 - 3:46 PM

Marlins purchased the contract of 1B/OF Tyler Moore from Triple-A New Orleans.

He cracked the roster following a Grapefruit League showing that saw him bat .308/.357/.673 with five homers. Moore will likely begin the season mostly as a pinch-hitter, but he could wind up starting at first base against lefties if Justin Bour's struggles versus southpaws continues.
Apr 2 - 11:42 AM

Tyler Moore hit a pair of homers off the bench to lead the Marlins to a 15-9 win over the Mets on Wednesday.

That's five homers for Moore this spring. Moore spent time with the Nationals four straight seasons from 2012-15, but he was traded to the Braves last spring and then missed much of the year. His only really successful stint in the majors came as a rookie, when he hit .263/.327/.513 in 156 at-bats. He posted OPSs in the 600s each of the three subsequent seasons. His hope of contributing to the Marlins would be a first baseman against left-handed pitchers, but since the team is planning on carrying 13 pitches, it wouldn't seem to have room on the roster to carry a true platoonmate for Justin Bour. Maybe Martin Prado's injury will change that, but even if so, it might only be for a week or two.
Mar 22 - 5:16 PM

Marlins signed 1B/OF Tyler Moore to a minor league contract.

Moore spent the 2016 season in the Braves' minor league system, posting a .227/.269/.382 batting line in 120 plate appearances between the rookie-level Gulf Coast League and Triple-A Gwinnett. The 29-year-old is a .228/.281/.401 career hitter at the MLB level.

Braves acquired 1B/OF Tyler Moore from the Nationals for 1B Nate Freiman.

Moore was cut from the Nationals earlier in the week and now finds himself in a situation where he's much more likely to garner both playing time and fantasy relevance. He's expected to report to minor league camp but should work his way up to a role with the big league club in relative short order.

Nationals sent 1B/OF Tyler Moore outright to Triple-A Syracuse.

Moore was waived on Thursday as he's out of minor league options and wasn't going to make the Opening Day roster, but he appears to have passed through waivers unclaimed. He'll provide valuable insurance in the minor league and should be back up as soon as injury strikes either Ryan Zimmerman or Jayson Werth.

Nationals waived 1B/OF Tyler Moore.

He's out of options, which means he'll have to pass through waivers unclaimed before the Nationals can assign him to the minor leagues. Moore was hoping to back up Ryan Zimmerman at first base but it looks like that role will instead be occupied by Clint Robinson. Even if the Nationals decide to release Moore instead of out-righting him, they'll still be on the hook for almost a quarter of his $900,000 base salary.

Tyler Moore took grounders at third base on Saturday.

Moore has never played third base at the professional level, only appearing at first base and both corner outfield spots. With Clint Robinson, Michael Taylor and Matt den Dekker all competing for playing time in the outfield, Moore's best chance of making the team might be as a backup third baseman to Anthony Rendon. "I felt good over there," said Moore. "Anywhere you can get on the field, it's great."

Nationals and 1B/OF Tyler Moore avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $900,000 contract.

Moore was arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter. The soon-to-be 29-year-old batted .203/.250/.364 with six homers in 200 plate appearances this past season and will function as a right-handed bench bat again in 2016.
Wed, Dec 2, 2015 12:20:00 PM

Nationals activated 1B/OF Tyler Moore from the 15-day disabled list.

Moore missed a little over two weeks with a left ankle sprain. The 28-year-old has batted just .200/.253/.347 in 162 plate appearances this season, but he'll provide some much-needed outfield depth for the Nationals in his return to the active roster on Thursday.
Thu, Sep 3, 2015 02:57:00 PM

Tyler Moore (ankle) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A Potomac.

Moore suffered a left ankle sprain last week, but he should be back in September. The 28-year-old is batting .200/.253/.347 with four home runs and 22 RBI over 162 plate appearances this season.
Tue, Aug 25, 2015 01:49:00 PM

Nationals placed INF/OF Tyler Moore on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 19, with a left ankle sprain.

Moore suffered the injury when he stepped on a ball in the batting cage on Thursday. He should be back in early September.
