Matt Moore (SP, TBR) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Stream in Most Leagues, Add in AL-Only and Deep Mixed Leagues

ANALYSIS: Matt Moore struggled in his season debut Thursday against Cleveland, allowing four runs on six hits and two walks in just 4.2 innings, striking out four in the no-decision. This was his first start since April 7, 2014, as he spent over a year on the shelf recovering from Tommy John surgery. The start was not positive for Moore, who was an All-Star in 2013 with a 17-4 record, 3.29 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 143/76 K/BB rate. Still, Moore did post a 2.95 ERA and 24/8 K/BB rate in the minors, so there is reason to believe he can bounce back from his first start.

While the Royals are a nice offensive team, they have been less productive against left-handed pitching. Their .380 slugging percentage and .697 OPS against lefties this year are much lower than the .412 SLG and .732 OPS they have posted against righties. The Astros, another first place team, have been striking out 25.3% of the time over the past month, the highest rate in the league. Houston will also be without its biggest bat, George Springer.
