CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Tampa Bay left-hander Matt Moore plans to play catch in a few days to see how his left elbow is feeling.
Moore went on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday. He also experienced elbow soreness last year while going 17-4 with a 3.29 ERA for the Rays.
He had an MRI and was waiting for a team doctor to compare it to previous tests. He said on Friday that he felt better and was hoping to play catch in three to five days, giving him a clearer idea of whether he'll need surgery.
The Rays haven't announced his replacement in the rotation. They have to pick someone to start the final game of an interleague series against Cincinnati on Sunday.
