Moore's team option was exercised by the Giants on Monday, Andrew Baggarly of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

After a strong finish to the 2016 season, hopes were high that Moore would be able to improve in 2017 and capitalize on having a full year to throw in the pitcher-friendly AT&T Park. However, rather than take a step forward, Moore regressed and posted a 5.52 ERA and 1.53 WHIP over 32 games. He'll have a chance to rebound in the upcoming season, but could run the risk of being used as an extended reliever should his struggles persist.

Moore (6-15) took the loss Tuesday against the Diamondbacks, coughing up eight runs (seven earned) on five hits and three walks over only 1.1 innings.

EDGE Analysis

He'll be grateful not to have to face J.D. Martinez again this year, after the slugger ripped a two-run double off Moore in the first inning and then followed it up with a grand slam in the second that chased him from the game. The lefty wraps up a disappointing campaign that mirrors the Giants' season as a whole, posting a 5.52 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 148:67 K:BB through 174.1 innings while setting a new career high in losses.

Moore (6-14) shut the Rockies out for six innings Wednesday, taking home a 4-0 win. He struck out six while allowing six hits and two walks.

EDGE Analysis

The lefty's three prior starts against Colorado this season -- two of which came at Coors Field -- had resulted in him giving up an incredible 19 runs and 30 hits over the course of just 12.2 innings, so this was quite the reversal of fortune. Being safely home in the friendly confines of AT&T Park might have factored in, though that didn't help him against the Dodgers his last time out. There's a lot of noise in Moore's game log and stat line, some of it seemingly positive, but the fact is that he's carrying a 5.20 ERA and 1.50 WHIP while playing for a brutal Giants team, so it's hard to trust him -- especially with a start in hitter-friendly Arizona coming up next.

Moore (5-14) lasted just 4.1 innings in a losing effort Wednesday, giving up four runs on six hits with three walks and five strikeouts in a 4-1 loss to the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Moore settled down after a two-run first inning, but a high pitch count and a fifth-inning home run courtesy of Cody Bellinger prevented the southpaw from finishing five frames for the seventh time this season. The 28-year-old's 5.39 ERA in 29 starts is the worst mark amongst all qualified National League pitchers. Moore's season has been a complete disaster, making it hard to trust him in his next start against the Rockies next Wednesday, even though it takes place in the friendly confines of AT&T Park.

Moore (5-13) allowed two runs on five hits and two walks with four strikeouts over 6.2 innings to pick up the win Friday against the White Sox

EDGE Analysis

Moore had his last start skipped as the Giants rearranged their rotation due to injuries and returns from injury. The rest seemed to do him well, as he rebounded well from his last start, a putrid outing in San Diego where he allowed two homers and five earned runs. Moore has been quietly solid of late, as he now owns a 3.21 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP over his last seven outings dating back to August 13.

Moore's next start will be pushed back to Friday against the White Sox after he was used out of the bullpen Sunday, Paul Gackle of The Mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Moore tossed a pair of scoreless innings while striking out one in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. The Giants reshuffled their rotation over the weekend due to Madison Bumgarner's illness and the return of Johnny Cueto from the disabled list. The move actually benefits whatever fantasy owners are left hanging on to the disappointing southpaw, as he will face a light-hitting White Sox lineup as opposed to taking on the Rockies at Coors Field.

Moore (4-13) gave up five runs on eight hits with just two strikeouts while taking the loss against the Padres on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Four of Moore's five runs came via the long ball, and he now owns a career-worst 1.4 HR/9 over 154 innings. The 28-year-old looked to be turning his atrocious season around with a 2.21 ERA over his previous three starts, but Tuesday's loss in a favorable matchup reminded fantasy owners that they should steer clear of the inconsistent southpaw at all costs.

Moore allowed a single run on five hits and two walks while striking out six batters through six innings during Wednesday's win over Milwaukee. He didn't factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

Moore is finding a groove on the mound and has now allowed just five runs through 20.1 innings over his past three starts. He's had a number of disastrous outings this season, and the lefty owns a crippling 5.38 ERA and 1.51 WHIP. Still, his 7.9 K/9 is serviceable, so Moore can provide value in the right matchups. He projects to make his next start against the Padres at AT&T Park.

Moore (4-12) allowed two runs on just two hits and four walks with four strikeouts over 7.1 innings to earn the victory Friday over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Moore has thrown two of his best starts of the season in consecutive outings. This marks the first time all year Moore has gone at least seven innings in consecutive starts, and he held his opponents to two runs both times. Friday marks his first win since June 20 against Atlanta, breaking a nine-start stretch in which Moore managed just a 5.51 ERA and 1.54 WHIP.

Moore allowed two runs on seven hits and no walks across seven innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Nationals. He struck out nine.

EDGE Analysis

Moore allowed solo home runs to Daniel Murphy and Ryan Zimmermann, but he was effective and otherwise kept them off the board. He needed just 91 pitches to complete seven frames, setting a new season high in strikeouts while going without a walk for the fifth time. This gem came at the right time for Moore, who had allowed nine earned runs over 11 innings during his previous two outings. He still owns a disappointing 5.71 ERA heading into his start Friday against the Phillies.
