Moore was shelled Monday, giving up six runs over just an inning in a 9-3 loss to the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Moore turned in his worst performance as a Giant in a game that the team needed to desperately win. San Francisco may have been surprised by this outing, but Moore's fantasy owners are well aware with his propensity to implode on occasion. Any pitcher with ratios 4.34 ERA, 1.23 HR/9 and 3.45 BB/9 would normally be considered waiver wire fodder, but the lefty's decent strikeout rate and favorable home ballpark keep owners coming back for more. His next start is scheduled for next Wednesday against the Rockies, but there is an outside chance that Moore could return to the mound on three days rest this Sunday due to his low pitch count Wednesday and Johnny Cueto's (groin) possible unavailability, CSN Bay Area reports.

Moore evened his record at 11-11 after allowing two runs on seven hits in five innings Friday against the Cardinals. He walked three and struck out four.

EDGE Analysis

Moore wasn't particularly, throwing 53 of 93 pitches for strikes, but with the Giants jumping out to a big lead Bruce Bochy didn't need to push him. Control continues to be a problem for Moore in the second half, as his walk rate has ballooned to 5.1 BB/9 since the trade deadline. He's experienced a corresponding uptick in strikeouts as well, so perhaps he's simply overthrowing the ball. He'll try to straighten things out in Wednesday's road start against the Dodgers.

Moore (10-11) allowed two runs on eight hits and one walk, striking out 11 over seven innings during Sunday's 5-3 win over the Diamondbacks,

EDGE Analysis

Coming off a disastrous outing at Coors Field, Moore rebounded with his third double-digit strikeout performance of the season. He walked only one batter and threw 78 of his 109 pitches for strikes, allowing him to pitch past the sixth inning for just the second time since joining San Francisco at the trade deadline. Moore's struggled with his command in his brief time with the Giants, seeing his walk rate rise from 2.8 BB/9 rate before the trade to 5.0 BB/9 after the trade. He'll look to replicate Sunday's pinpoint accuracy in his next start against the Cardinals at home on Friday.

Moore (2-4) allowed six runs on five hits and four walks over just 2.2 innings in a loss Monday to the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Moore had lasted at least five innings in every one of his starts dating back to May 9 against the Blue Jays. Control continues to be a huge issue for the lefty, as he walked four batters or more for the fifth time this season. Moore owns a 4.31 ERA with the Giants, and most of his struggles can be pinned to a horrid 5.7 BB/9 since he was acquired by San Francisco.

Moore (2-4) was hammered to the tune of six runs over 2.2 innings against the Rockies on Monday. He walked four and only struck out one.

EDGE Analysis

This was clearly Moore's worst outing with his new club, as he had managed to go at least five innings in his six previous starts since joining San Francisco. Usually it is a sound strategy to avoid starting non-ace pitchers at Coors Field, but owners may have been lured into this dud because he had been coming off of two strong outings. Things don't get easier for the lefty as his next start comes against Arizona at Chase Field, which ranks right behind Coors this season in terms of homer-friendly ballparks.

Moore (9-10) pitched 5.1 innings while limiting the Diamondbacks to one run on five hits in Wednesday's win. He walked one and struck out seven.

EDGE Analysis

It wasn't quite the near no-hitter from his last start, but it was yet another strong performance in a Giants uniform. Since being acquired from Tampa Bay at the beginning of the month, Moore owns a 3.16 ERA over six starts while notching 36 strikeouts over 37 innings. The left-hander has a tough task at hand Monday when he takes the hill for his next start at the hitter-friendly Coors Field in Colorado.

Moore (8-10) came within one out of a no-hitter Thursday, ultimately holding the Dodgers scoreless with one hit, three walks and seven strikeouts over 8.2 frames.

EDGE Analysis

A clean single to right by Corey Seager spoiled Moore's bid for his first career no-no, but this was still a spectacular outing for the lefty. However, after he threw a whopping 133 pitches -- a scary prospect for a guy with his injury history -- en route to his first win as a Giant, Moore may not be a safe fantasy play when he makes his next start Wednesday against Arizona.

Moore (0-3) took the loss against the Mets on Saturday after giving up three runs on five hits. He walked three and struck out three over five innings.

EDGE Analysis

Moore continues to struggle with his new club, posting a 4.70 ERA and 1.48 WHIP through four starts. One of his biggest issues has been a lack of control, walking 17 batters in 23 innings with the Giants. Moore does have a 3.35 BB/9 on the year, and while that isn't a great mark, it is definitely better than walk rate he is posting in San Francisco. His next start against the Dodgers should be considered a risky play, but the upside in the matchup lies in Los Angeles' lefty-heavy lineup.

Moore (0-2) allowed five runs on six hits and three walks with five strikeouts over six innings in Monday's loss to the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Moore induced 12 swinging strikes and tossed first-pitch strikes to 16 of 27 batters, but he was touched up for a two-run home run in the sixth inning by Gregory Polanco that sullied what was to that point a quality start. So far, Moore has had shaky control for the Giants. He has already issued 14 walks in just 18 innings, the major reason he owns a mediocre 4.50 ERA and 1.44 WHIP thus far.

Moore threw six solid innings Tuesday, allowing a pair of earned runs on just three hits but five walks while striking out seven Marlins hitters.

EDGE Analysis

Despite throwing his second straight quality start since being traded to the Giants, Moore was outdueled by Miami starter Tom Koehler, who threw seven shutout innings. Moore has at times seemed unhittable over the two starts, allowing just six hits over 12 innings. Yet he has struggled with his command, walking 11 over that timeframe. Moore has become accustomed to finding success despite walking hitters over the course of his career, as evidenced by his career 3.87 ERA, which is practically equalled by his 3.86 BB:9 rate. He'll look to throw more strikes Monday against the Pirates.
