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. Mar 27 - 4:12 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.

Tyler Moore was 3-for-4 with two doubles and four RBI against the Giants on Saturday.

Moore doubled home a run in the fourth inning before hitting a two-run double in the sixth. He then added an RBI single in the seventh. It was his first three-hit game of the season. The 28-year-old is batting .227/.277/.400 in part-time duty this year.

Tyler Moore slugged a solo homer Friday against the Brewers.

It was his fourth home run of the season. The 28-year-old is batting just .187/.235/.387 through 41 games, but he should continue to see plenty of playing time with Jayson Werth (wrist) and Ryan Zimmerman (plantar fasciitis) both sidelined.

Tyler Moore drove in five runs with a homer and a triple in the Nationals' 9-8 victory over the Braves on Friday.

Moore is out of options, which is one of the reasons the Nationals protected themselves by adding Mike Carp and Kila Ka'aihue on minor league deals. Moore, who has hit .239/.295/.418 with 18 homers in 414 at-bats for the Nationals over the last three years, wouldn't be an asset as an everyday first baseman or DH, but he'd make for a decent stopgap for any team that loses its starter. As a result, there's a pretty good chance he'll find himself elsewhere on Opening Day.
Fri, Mar 6, 2015 05:57:00 PM

Nationals recalled 1B/OF Tyler Moore from Triple-A Syracuse.

Moore, 27, is batting .214/.295/.371 over 31 games with the Nationals this season. He'll function as a right-handed bat off the bench down the stretch.
Mon, Sep 1, 2014 03:40:00 PM

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

This means that Greg Dobbs will remain with the team. Moore, 27, is batting .214/.295/.371 over 31 games with the Nationals this season.
Tue, Jun 3, 2014 02:30:00 PM

Tyler Moore went 2-for-4 with two runs batted in as the Nationals defeated the Mets on Friday.

Moore knocked in the Nationals' third run in the first inning with an RBI groundout, then added his second RBI with a single in the third inning. Moore has seen an increase in playing time since Adam LaRoche went on the disabled list and has now hit safely in four consecutive games.

Nationals recalled 1B/OF Tyler Moore from Triple-A Syracuse.

Moore has hit .200/.273/.433 in 30 at-bats with the Nats this season. He's worth owning in NL-only leagues as he sees some time at first base while Adam LaRoche (quad) is on the disabled list.
