Scott Moore went 3-for-4 with a homer and a double against the Mets on Friday.
Both extra-base hits were off Bartolo Colon. Moore's numbers slipped last year at age 30, but he's been a very good Triple-A player through the years and he's done OK in the majors, hitting .242/.302/.410 in 385 at-bats between 2006-12. He's not much of a candidate to see significant time with the Cardinals this year, but if multiple injuries strike, he'd probably be a respectable stopgap. Mar 20 - 4:12 PM

Cardinals re-signed INF Scott Moore to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Moore, 30, batted .236/.328/.397 with 15 home runs and 58 RBI over 121 games with Triple-A Memphis this season. He'll presumably return there for 2015.

Cardinals signed INF Scott Moore to a minor league contract.

He'll presumably receive an invitation to spring training. Moore, who will turn 30 later this month, batted .271/.353/.448 with 14 homers and 66 RBI at the Triple-A level this season. He's merely minor league depth.

Padres signed INF Scott Moore to a minor league contract.

Moore had been at Triple-A with the A's, where he batted .275/.359/.475 with 11 homers and 56 RBI. It's not clear if the A's decided to release him or Moore requested it, but, either way, his promotion to the majors isn't imminent.

Athletics signed INF Scott Moore to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Moore was outrighted off the Astros' 40-man roster earlier this month after batting just .259 with a .330 on-base percentage across 228 plate appearances in 2012. He's doubtful to make a big impact for Oakland.

Scott Moore has elected to become a free agent.

Moore was outrighted to Triple-A Oklahoma City by the Astros earlier this month but refused that assignment. He will now try to latch on with a new organization.

Astros sent INF Scott Moore outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Moore batted just .259 with a .330 on-base percentage in 228 plate appearances this past season for Houston. The 29-year-old infielder drew no interest on waivers.

Scott Moore left Tuesday's game because of irritation of the AC joint in his left shoulder.

The Astros are listing him as day-to-day, but there's obviously a good chance this will end his season. Moore may have positioned himself for a roster spot next year by batting .259 with nine homers over 72 games.

Scott Moore went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI, and a run in Sunday's 7-6 win over the Phillies.

Moore blasted his eighth home run of the season in the bottom of the third inning off of Roy Halladay to drive in Jimmy Paredes and give the Astros a 2-1 lead. His recent groin injury didn't seem to have much of an effect on him.

Scott Moore (groin) struck out as a pinch-hitter Wednesday.

Moore hasn't started a game in over a week because of a left groin strain. He's still being considered day-to-day.
Thu, Sep 13, 2012 08:46:00 AM

Scott Moore (groin) singled as a pinch-hitter in Tuesday's win over the Cubs.

Moore hadn't appeared in a game since last Wednesday with a left groin strain. It shouldn't be much longer before he's ready to return to the starting lineup.
Wed, Sep 12, 2012 08:47:00 AM

Scott Moore left Wednesday's game with a left groin strain.

It's likely more than a day-to-day injury. Moore picked up a single in his two at-bats against Kevin Correia before exiting.
Wed, Sep 5, 2012 09:37:00 PM

Scott Moore went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's blowout win over the Cubs.

Moore had an RBI double in the top of the first inning and a solo blast in the seventh. It was his first three-hit game since September 28, 2007 as a member of the Orioles. The 28-year-old has some pop and should continue to get regular playing time at first base, but he's not worth considering outside of NL-only leagues.
Tue, Aug 14, 2012 10:57:00 PM

Scott Moore singled and belted a solo homer in Monday's loss to the Brewers.

Moore has gotten plenty of playing time for the going-nowhere Astros and has managed to hit five homers over 25 games. He should be the regular third baseman with Chris Johnson no longer around and deserves attention in NL-only leagues.
Mon, Jul 30, 2012 11:46:00 PM

Scott Moore singled and drove in both Astros runs with sac flies in Monday's win over the Padres.

Both sac flies scored Jose Altuve. Moore has hit .267 with three homers in 12 games for the Astros, but the 15/1 K/BB ratio in 45 at-bats isn't pretty. The Astros will eventually give Brett Wallace a crack at the first base job, pushing Moore into a bench role.
