Phillies Sign Left-handed Pitcher Matt Moore to a One-Year Deal
January 29Michael ArinzeSportsGrid
Left-handed pitcher Matt Moore returns to Major League Baseball after signing a one-year deal $3 million deal with the Philadelphia Phillies. Moore spent last season in Japan with the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks. He finished the year with a 6-3 record and a 2.65 ERA in over 70 innings of work.
Moore last pitched in the majors in 2019 with the Tigers, but his season was cut short after just two starts due to a meniscus tear in his knee. In his nine-year major league career, he’s made 150 starts and has a 54-56 record with a 4.52 ERA.
The Phillies did not have any starts by a left-hander last season, and they’re hoping to change that with Moore’s signing. Even with all right-handers, their starters managed to finish with a 19-18 record.
