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. Jun 13 - 12:48 AM

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.

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.

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.

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

Moore hit .200/.273/.433 in 30 at-bats with the Nats. The team optioned him to make room for Doug Fister on the active roster.

Tyler Moore went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs scored on Friday against the Phillies.

It was his second home run of the season. Moore is quite strikeout prone, but he could see at-bats against southpaws while Bryce Harper (thumb) is on the disabled list. Still, that doesn't leave much room for fantasy value, even in NL-only leagues.

Tyler Moore went 3-for-5 and hit his first homer Monday against the Marlins.

Moore was getting a start at first base in place of Adam LaRoche tonight. That won't happen very frequently, but maybe the Nationals will give him a couple of starts in left while the outfield is banged up. That would give him a little short-term value in NL-only leagues, but probably only a little.

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

Moore is replacing Scott Hairston (oblique) on the roster. He'll provide a bat off the bench for the Nationals.
Sun, Apr 6, 2014 10:37:00 AM

Nationals optioned OF Tyler Moore, LHP Xavier Cedeno, and RHP Ryan Mattheus to Triple-A Syracuse.

No real surprises among this round of cuts. Moore did not hit well this spring and registered a weak .607 OPS in 178 plate appearances last summer for the Nationals. He'll be organizational depth this season. Cedeno and Mattheus didn't make the grade for the Opening Day bullpen but should get action this year in the bigs.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports believes that the Astros could have interest in acquiring Tyler Moore from the Nationals.

The 26-year-old appeared in 63 games with the Nats in 2013, slashing a mere .222/.260/.347 with four homers and 21 RBI. He has familiarity with Astros skipper Bo Porter from his time in Washington however, and the ability to play first base as well as either corner outfield position.

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

Moore is taking the spot of Taylor Jordan on the active roster. The 26-year-old is batting just .151/.195/.283 in 42 games with the Nationals.
Sat, Aug 17, 2013 03:25:00 PM

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

The move clears a spot for the newly-acquired Scott Hairston on the active roster. Moore is batting just .151 with three homers and 39 strikeouts in 113 plate appearances with the Nats this season.

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

Moore will replace Dan Haren (shoulder) on the active roster. The 26-year-old has struggled with the Nationals this season and was hitting just .178 (8-for-45) with two homers and 15 strikeouts through 12 games in the minors.
