Moore tossed three shutout innings Tuesday, walking two and striking out five in a win over the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Moore bounced back in a big way after allowing four runs in his last spring appearance. The lefty's last two outings are a perfect representation of the Jekyll and Hyde results Moore can provide as a starter. There are times when he is unhittable, and others when he can't make it out of the early innings. He is by no means a safe option, but there is value in his arm as a mid-tier pitcher with strikeout potential.

Moore gave up four runs on five hits while walking two and striking out two over 2.2 innings in Thursday's split-squad contest against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The stat line looks ugly, but a young defense behind Moore cost him several runs. Rookie outfield Steve Duggar misplayed two separate hits in center field that allowed four White Sox baserunners to advance and score without making the runs unearned. Results aside, Moore has a rotation spot locked up and will use spring training as a way to prepare for the regular season. The 27-year-old southpaw is a volatile mid-tier pitcher with high strikeout potential.

Manager Bruce Bochy formed his rotation for spring training Wednesday, listing Moore as his third pitcher which is where he should land once the regular season begins, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Moore had an up-and-down season between Tampa Bay and San Francisco last season, finishing with a modest 4.08 ERA and a 2.5 K/BB ratio over 198.1 innings. A full season in San Francisco should help in terms of his home ballpark being favorable to pitchers and also having a better offense behind him for leagues that count wins. Moore isn't a safe pitcher by any means, but his ability to strike out batters (8.1 K/9) make him viable in most formats.

The Giants will pick up the $7 million contract on Moore's contract for next season, Jon Heyman of Today's Knuckleball reports.

EDGE Analysis

Moore had some ups and downs after being acquired by the Giants at the trade deadline, but he ended the season on a strong note and will come at a major bargain next year, so the Giants undoubtedly did not have to waste much time deciding on his option. Moore will occupy either the third or fourth spot in what will be a loaded 2017 Giants rotation.

Moore (13-12) allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out six over eight innings Sunday in a wild card-clinching win over the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

The left-hander heads into the postseason with some momentum, giving up only two runs with a 17:2 K:BB over his final two regular season starts, and he finishes the regular season with a 4.08 ERA and 178:72 K:BB in 198.1 innings split between San Francisco and Tampa Bay. If the Giants can get by the Mets in the Wild Card Game, Moore should play a prominent role in their rotation plans for the NLDS.

Moore (5-5) allowed one run over 7.2 innings and struck out 11 in a win Tuesday against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Moore bounced back from a horrendous start last time out against the dodgers (1 IP, 6 ER) to deliver arguably his best start of the season. He didn't walk a batter for the first time since April 17, tied a season high with 11 strikeouts, and needed just 99 pitches to get 23 outs. Moore owns a mediocre 4.48 ERA for the Giants, but this start shows he still has the enticing talent for which they acquired him.

Moore was shelled Monday, giving up six runs over just an inning in a 9-3 loss to the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Moore turned in his worst performance as a Giant in a game that the team needed to desperately win. San Francisco may have been surprised by this outing, but Moore's fantasy owners are well aware with his propensity to implode on occasion. Any pitcher with ratios 4.34 ERA, 1.23 HR/9 and 3.45 BB/9 would normally be considered waiver wire fodder, but the lefty's decent strikeout rate and favorable home ballpark keep owners coming back for more. His next start is scheduled for next Wednesday against the Rockies, but there is an outside chance that Moore could return to the mound on three days rest this Sunday due to his low pitch count Wednesday and Johnny Cueto's (groin) possible unavailability, CSN Bay Area reports.

Moore evened his record at 11-11 after allowing two runs on seven hits in five innings Friday against the Cardinals. He walked three and struck out four.

EDGE Analysis

Moore wasn't particularly, throwing 53 of 93 pitches for strikes, but with the Giants jumping out to a big lead Bruce Bochy didn't need to push him. Control continues to be a problem for Moore in the second half, as his walk rate has ballooned to 5.1 BB/9 since the trade deadline. He's experienced a corresponding uptick in strikeouts as well, so perhaps he's simply overthrowing the ball. He'll try to straighten things out in Wednesday's road start against the Dodgers.

Moore (10-11) allowed two runs on eight hits and one walk, striking out 11 over seven innings during Sunday's 5-3 win over the Diamondbacks,

EDGE Analysis

Coming off a disastrous outing at Coors Field, Moore rebounded with his third double-digit strikeout performance of the season. He walked only one batter and threw 78 of his 109 pitches for strikes, allowing him to pitch past the sixth inning for just the second time since joining San Francisco at the trade deadline. Moore's struggled with his command in his brief time with the Giants, seeing his walk rate rise from 2.8 BB/9 rate before the trade to 5.0 BB/9 after the trade. He'll look to replicate Sunday's pinpoint accuracy in his next start against the Cardinals at home on Friday.

Moore (2-4) allowed six runs on five hits and four walks over just 2.2 innings in a loss Monday to the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Moore had lasted at least five innings in every one of his starts dating back to May 9 against the Blue Jays. Control continues to be a huge issue for the lefty, as he walked four batters or more for the fifth time this season. Moore owns a 4.31 ERA with the Giants, and most of his struggles can be pinned to a horrid 5.7 BB/9 since he was acquired by San Francisco.
