Tyler Moore 1B WAS 3 Days

Despite being out of options, Moore could be a bit behind Mike Carp in the spring battle for a bench spot given the Nationals' need for left-handed hitters, the Washington Post reports.

If Moore doesn't make the 25-man roster, he's unlikely to clear waivers, complicating the roster decisions for the Nats. Given the injury history of first baseman Ryan Zimmerman, whoever wins the job backing him up could have more fantasy value than expected in deeper NL-only leagues.

Tyler Moore 1B WAS 6 Months

Moore was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Monday.

Given the relative health of the Nats' outfield options as well as Adam LaRoche, Moore figures to be deployed primarily off the bench in September, though he could steal occasional starts at first base against left-handed pitching. Moore hit .278/.391/.514 with four homers in 72 at-bats against lefties at Syracuse this season.

Tyler Moore 1B WAS 9 Months

Nationals optioned 1B/OF Tyler Moore to Triple-A Syracuse.

Tyler Moore went 2-for-4 with two runs batted in as the Nationals defeated the Mets on Friday.

Moore knocked in the Nationals' third run in the first inning with an RBI groundout, then added his second RBI with a single in the third inning. Moore has seen an increase in playing time since Adam LaRoche went on the disabled list and has now hit safely in four consecutive games.

Tyler Moore 1B WAS 10 Months

Nationals recalled 1B/OF Tyler Moore from Triple-A Syracuse.

Moore has hit .200/.273/.433 in 30 at-bats with the Nats this season. He's worth owning in NL-only leagues as he sees some time at first base while Adam LaRoche (quad) is on the disabled list.

Nationals optioned 1B Tyler Moore to Triple-A Syracuse.

Moore hit .200/.273/.433 in 30 at-bats with the Nats. The team optioned him to make room for Doug Fister on the active roster.

Tyler Moore 1B WAS 10 Months

Tyler Moore went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs scored on Friday against the Phillies.

It was his second home run of the season. Moore is quite strikeout prone, but he could see at-bats against southpaws while Bryce Harper (thumb) is on the disabled list. Still, that doesn't leave much room for fantasy value, even in NL-only leagues.

Tyler Moore 1B WAS 11 Months

Tyler Moore went 3-for-5 and hit his first homer Monday against the Marlins.

Moore was getting a start at first base in place of Adam LaRoche tonight. That won't happen very frequently, but maybe the Nationals will give him a couple of starts in left while the outfield is banged up. That would give him a little short-term value in NL-only leagues, but probably only a little.

Tyler Moore 1B WAS 11 Months

Nationals optioned OF Tyler Moore, LHP Xavier Cedeno, and RHP Ryan Mattheus to Triple-A Syracuse.

No real surprises among this round of cuts. Moore did not hit well this spring and registered a weak .607 OPS in 178 plate appearances last summer for the Nationals. He'll be organizational depth this season. Cedeno and Mattheus didn't make the grade for the Opening Day bullpen but should get action this year in the bigs.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports believes that the Astros could have interest in acquiring Tyler Moore from the Nationals.

The 26-year-old appeared in 63 games with the Nats in 2013, slashing a mere .222/.260/.347 with four homers and 21 RBI. He has familiarity with Astros skipper Bo Porter from his time in Washington however, and the ability to play first base as well as either corner outfield position.
