Moore (3-7) gave up three runs on seven hits over seven innings in Tuesday's win over Atlanta. He struck out six and walked one.

EDGE Analysis

Not generally known for his control, Moore was on point in this one, throwing 71 of his 102 pitches for strikes. It was a much-needed improvement after the lefty got rocked for 16 earned runs in 13 innings over his prior three outings, but Moore still has ugly season numbers with a 5.82 ERA and 1.58 WHIP, and it doesn't look like he's going to start rattling off gems anytime soon. He'll draw the Mets at home on Sunday.

Moore allowed eight runs on 11 hits and two walks while striking out seven batters through just three innings during Thursday's loss to Colorado. He didn't factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

Considering Moore's road struggles, turning to him at Coors Field was a risky start, but at least the seven strikeouts soften the ratio blow. The lefty owns a solid 3.07 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 7.2 K/9 at AT&T Park, but Moore has been hammered on the road to the tune of a 9.24 ERA and 2.11 WHIP. At some point, his drastic home-road splits should stabilize, but it's currently a pretty convincing trend. Moore lines up to face the Braves at SunTrust Park.

Moore was hammered to the tune of eight runs on 11 hits over three innings Thursday. He walked two and struck out seven in a 10-9 loss to the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Moore continues to struggle in the month of June, surrendering 16 earned runs over 12 innings while bringing his season ERA up to an even 6.00 through 14 starts. The veteran southpaw has experienced a bit of bad luck with a .349 BABIP against coupled with a career-low 64.9 percent strand rate, but a 4.80 FIP tells us that he hasn't been doing much to help his case on the mound even if things were breaking his way. At this point, the only positive thing that can be said about Moore's season is that he has done a good job of pitching in cavernous AT&T Park (3.07 ERA at home), but his inability to sustain success on the road (7.94 ERA) greatly diminishes his fantasy value.

Moore gave up four runs on seven hits and three walks over six innings to fall to 2-7 with a 5.28 ERA in Friday's loss to Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

Moore was lucky not to give up more runs as he allowed ten base runners, but he was unlucky to give up a fluky three-run double to Twins pitcher Ervin Santana. Despite Moore's ugly overall numbers, he had been pitching well at home with a 2.57 ERA before Friday. He also had regrouped after a terrible April with a 3.13 ERA and 7.4 K/9 in his previous five starts, so there's hope he can get back on track.

Moore allowed five runs -- four earned -- on six hits and two walks while striking out just a single batter through four innings during Sunday's loss to Philadelphia. He didn't factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

Moore has been hammered away from AT&T Park to the tune of a 7.94 ERA and 1.91 WHIP, and he's held a road opponent to fewer than three runs just once in seven starts. His 2.57 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 7.7 K/9 at home are strong numbers, so the talent is there. It's pretty clear that he's difficult to trust on the road at this point, though. He projects to face the Twins at AT&T in his next trip to the mound.

Moore (2-6) allowed two runs on six hits (one homer) while walking none and striking out five over seven innings in Monday's 3-0 loss to the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

After getting blown up for nine runs in 3.1 innings in his first start of the month of May, Moore has now thrown five straight outings with three or fewer runs surrendered to drop his ERA to 4.98. The lefty is still a shaky shallow-league option because of his 7.5 K/9 and 3.3 BB/9, but as we've seen, he can be an effective matchup play in deeper leagues.

Moore (2-5) gave up four runs (three earned) on seven hits over six innings Wednesday. He walked three and struck out four in a 5-4 loss to the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran lefty has either been prone to blow ups or downright dominant this season, so it was odd seeing him pitch a game that was neither. It is tough to decipher whether Moore's 5.28 ERA and 1.53 WHIP are due for an improvement due to his inconsistent results on a year-to-year basis. Shallow league owners could probably find more consistent options on waivers at this point, but those in deeper formats have no choice but to hang tight and hope the good outweighs the bad the rest of the way.

Moore (2-4) gave up two runs on five hits and three walks over six innings while striking out five but came away with a no-decision in Friday's 6-5 win over the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

The Giants scored all six of their runs after Moore was out of the game, so despite his strong effort he was never in line for the victory. The left-hander seems to be settling down after his rough start to the season and now has a 2.89 ERA and 17:7 K:BB over his last three outings, although his 1.45 WHIP during that stretch remains shaky. He'll face a tough test Wednesday on the road against a Cubs team that ranks fifth in the league in wOBA (.342) against southpaws.

Moore (2-4) allowed a single run on eight hits and three walks while striking out seven hits over 7.1 innings during Saturday's win over Cincinnati.

EDGE Analysis

The home-road splits have been drastic for Moore, as the lefty owns a 2.57 ERA and 1.14 WHIP at AT&T Park compared to 10.50 and 2.17 marks over his four road starts. Moore has the potential to narrow the gap going forward, but it isn't out of the question to bench him in tough road matchups, either. On the other hand, it's clear that Moore is a go-to option at home until he proves otherwise. A date with the Cardinals at Busch Stadium is on deck for Moore next week.

Moore allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out five batters during Modnay's loss to the Mets. He did not factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

Moore has been a mess on the road this season with a 10.50 ERA and 2.17 WHIP compared to his 3.05 and 1.02 marks at AT&T Park. The lefty has never fully lived up to the hype that accompanied him moving through the minors, and he's now allowed the most earned runs in the National League. A home start against the Reds is up next for Moore.
