Concerning news here on Rays left-hander Matt Moore, who left his start Monday against the Royals due to left elbow discomfort and was officially placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday …

It’s promising that Moore feels good, but any visit with Dr. James Andrews is reason for alarm.

Moore, 24, owns a 3.53 ERA (108 ERA+), 1.329 WHIP, and 8.8 K/9 in 347 career major league innings.

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
