Moore (elbow) was placed on the 60-day disabled list Friday, Steve Carney of 620 WDAE AM reports.

Moore's placement on the disabled list comes as an ancillary move to add catcher Bobby Wilson to the 40-man roster. He's remains months away from a return from Tommy John surgery, but will need to be re-added to the roster upon his return.

The Rays had been resting Moore for the previous two weeks in an effort to aid his recovery from Tommy John surgery last April.

Moore (elbow) threw from the pitching rubber Friday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery last April, the Rays' official site reports.

The expectation is that Moore will throw two bullpen sessions per week with the hope of adding volume to his workouts in the coming weeks. Moore didn't provide an updated timetable for his expected return, but previous estimates have suggested that he'll be back in the rotation in June.

Moore (elbow) threw off a mound Tuesday and was pleased with how it went, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Tuesday's mound session marked Moore's first since undergoing Tommy John surgery in April. It represents a big step forward in the lefty's recovery and it appears he's on track to return at some point in June, though the team figures to proceed with caution in the months ahead. Moore went 17-4 with a 3.29 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 8.6 K/9 as a 24-year-old in 2013.

Moore's (elbow) recovery from Tommy John surgery has him on schedule to return to the Rays' rotation in June, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

After just two starts, Moore's 2014 campaign came to an abrupt end in early April due to a torn UCL. However, the young lefty's recovery has gone well so far, as he has been on a throwing program since September and appears on track for an early-summer return to the Rays' rotation. The 25-year-old All-Star owns a 29-17 record with a solid 3.49 ERA and 8.8 K/9 over 61 career starts in the majors.

Moore (elbow) was reinstated from the 60-day disabled list Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Moore needed to be added to the 40-man roster Monday as the 60-day DL dissolves five days after the World Series ends. He participated in his first throwing session in early September since undergoing Tommy John surgery in April. His timetable is still unclear, but he should be able to pitch at some point next season. The Rays will need to make two moves to clear spots on the 40-man for Moore and Jerry Sands, who was also removed from the 60-day DL.

Moore (elbow), on Tuesday, completed his first throwing session since recovering from Tommy John surgery, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Moore made 25 throws from about 45 feet Tuesday. It's not clear how he felt afterward, but he was reportedly smiling during the session, so it's safe to assume things went well. It's not clear when he will be ready to pitch next season, but consider his recovery on track.

Moore (elbow) will play catch Monday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery in April, Steve Carney of 620wdae.com reports.

Moore has been taking part in sock throws for the last two weeks without any issues, so he'll advance to the next stage of the lengthy rehab process. There's a very slim possibility that Moore will be back for the start of the 2015 regular season, but a return around the All-Star break is probably a more realistic outcome for the left-hander.
