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.

Moore gave up two runs on three hits and six walks while striking out seven over six innings in a no-decision against the Phillies on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

While Moore wasn't particularly sharp in his Giants debut, he was able to limit the damage from the six free passes, as the Phillies were unable to barrel him up. He allowed just one hit over his first five frames Thursday, and now hasn't allowed more than five hits in any of his last four starts. Moore's stock figures to trend up as he gets more time to work with Buster Posey and pitching coach Dave Righetti.

Moore will join the Giants in Philadelphia on Tuesday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although Moore will be with the Giants, he's not going to make a start Tuesday. At this point in time, the team has yet to announce how they'll adjust their rotation to make room for the southpaw. Moore has improved in recent contests, as he's posted a 1.60 ERA and 1.10 WHIP over his last five starts (33.2 innings).

The Rays have traded Moore to the Giants, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Moore will be the second left-hander in the Giants rotation, joining ace Madison Bumgarner. Moore was having a nice bounce-back campaign for the Rays, posting a 4.08 ERA and 1.27 WHIP with 109 strikeouts in 130 innings. The 27-year-old and former top prospect will head to the National League and pitch half of his games in pitcher-friendly AT&T Park. He should be scooped up in all fantasy leagues in which he was dropped.

Moore (7-7) allowed just one unearned run on four hits, five strikeouts and four walks over 6.2 innings in a victory over the Dodgers on Wednesday afternoon.

EDGE Analysis

After two strong months to begin the year, Moore blew up in June, but he's back to his early season form in July. This month, he's 3-2 with a 2.44 ERA, which is easily his best ERA of any month this season. His fantasy value will greatly depend on whether he's traded before the deadline or not, but it's a great sign he's pitching so well. If he stays in Tampa Bay, his next start will be Tuesday versus the Royals.

Moore is one of several Rays players drawing strong trade interest around the majors, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 27-year-old southpaw has put together five consecutive quality starts, and brings the allure of a solid lefty arm that is typically coveted by contending teams down the stretch and in the postseason. Moore has hit his stride over the last eight starts, lowering his ERA from 5.56 to 4.31 over that stretch. He's only generated a 4-3 record during that span, but has notably only received a combined five runs of support over the trio of defeats.

Moore (5-7) surrendered two earned runs on five hits and a walk over 7.1 innings in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Orioles. He also recorded a strikeout.

EDGE Analysis

The 27-year-old southpaw posted his fourth consecutive quality start, turning in his longest outing of the season in the process. Moore has settled into a nice groove since late June, and demonstrated superior control while throwing only 93 pitches over his time on the mound. He could well be in a different uniform before month's end given the reported interest in him around the majors and if so, is building considerable momentum with his recent performances. Moore's next scheduled start is next Thursday versus the A's.
