MATT MOORE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Matt Moore’s New Pitch Addresses Old Concerns

In his last start, the Giants’ Matt Moore did something he’d never done before. Not no-hit a team through eight innings: he’d thrown an actual no-hitter before, in Double-A in 2011, on 98 pitches on his brother’s birthday. He’d thrown a one-hitter before, too — albeit over seven innings instead of 9.2, and earlier in his pro career. What he did this Aug. 25 against the...

Dodgers fan toasts Matt Moore losing no-hit bid with dual middle fingers (vid)

San Francisco Giants lefty Matt Moore came about as close as a pitcher can get to tossing a no-hitter, allowing a bloop single to right field to Corey Seager with two-outs in the ninth inning.

Thirteen of those strikeouts came over a stretch of just 15 batters! He allowed just a single run! As the abundance of exclamation...

Post-Tommy John surgery, Matt Moore focused on new chapter

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Matt Moore walked in the Tampa Bay Rays clubhouse with a brace on his left arm, a visual sign of his long path to come after Tommy John surgery.

Matt Moore done for year; will undergo Tommy John surgery

WATCH: Matt Moore hit in face with line drive, makes play

Someone with much more time on their hands than me figured out that there are about 700,000 pitches thrown a season. Of those 700,000 only one in every 300,000 end up hitting the pitcher in the face (courtesy of a line drive).
