World news – Phillies Sign Lefty Starter Moore


The Phillies added a starting mug. The Phillies’ starting depth was limited to Aaron Nola, Zack Wheeler, Zach Eflin, Vince Velasquez and Spencer Howard. So had to give something. The Phillies added a veteran to a major league deal who throws five from the left as opposed to those.

Matt Moore and #Phillies approve the major league deal, sources confirm the @ JSalisburyNBCS report. Moore went 6-3 with 2.65 ERA in 15 starts last year in Japan. He will be fighting for a job in the rotation. The deal is pending.

Moore made two starts in his final MLB season, which came with the Detroit Tigers, in which he never gave up. On the second start, Moore tore his meniscus and missed the rest of the season. He then went to Japan for 2020. In the 2020 Japan Series, Moore delivered seven innings without a hit.

The Phillies have not regularly presented a left-handed starting pitcher since Adam Morgan started. In 2019, the Phillies added Jason Vargas and Drew Smyly mid-season but had no left-handed in any game other than Bullpen games in 2020.

Moore’s best season in the Major Leagues was in 2013 when he was 17-4 years old and had an earned run average of 3.29 for the Tampa Bay Rays. Moore was named an All-Star this season. Lifetime he’s 54-56 with a earned run average of 4.19.
