  • Marlins' Tyler Moore: Outrighted from 40-man roster

    Moore was outrighted from the 40-man roster Saturday, Andre Hernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

    Moore played in 104 games this season during his first year with the Marlins, but was removed from the 40-man roster, along with three others, Saturday. During the 2017 campaign, he slashed .230/.267/.401 with six home runs and 30 RBI.

  • Marlins' Tyler Moore: Losing starts to Telis

    Moore is out of the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Phillies, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

    The Marlins' timeshare at first base has seemingly favored Tomas Telis of late, as he'll pick up his fourth start in five games while Moore rides the bench. With Telis batting .348 over his last eight appearances and Moore off to a 6-for-33 start to August, manager Don Mattingly's decision to ride the hotter bat isn't a surprising one. It may take a multi-game cold spell from Telis before Moore starts picking up regular at-bats again.

  • Marlins' Tyler Moore: Taking control of first-base timeshare

    Moore will start at first base and bat sixth in Monday's game against the Giants, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

    With Moore picking up his fourth start in six games, it looks as though he's at least temporarily seized control of the timeshare at first base ahead of Tomas Telis, who has been his main competition for duties at the position since Justin Bour (oblique) hit the disabled list. Both Moore and Telis offer limited fantasy appeal outside of NL-only leagues, but Moore's upside is probably greater due to the superior power he's displayed in the minors and over parts of five seasons in the majors.

  • Marlins' Tyler Moore: Not starting Friday

    Moore is not in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Rockies, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

    Moore had started the last couple games at first base, but it appears manager Don Mattingly is aiming for more of a platoon system between him and Tomas Telis while Justin Bour (oblique) remains on the disabled list. The 30-year-old Moore may need to do more at the plate if he wants to see increased action, as he has just four hits in his last 22 at-bats.

  • Marlins' Tyler Moore: May no longer retain starting gig

    Moore is out of the lineup Monday against the Nationals, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

    It's the third straight game that Moore will hit the bench, a sign the Marlins are no longer viewing him as the primary replacement for the injured Justin Bour (oblique), who is likely to miss the remainder of the season. Tomas Telis will draw his second start in three games at first base Monday, but if Telis fails to offer much production in the days to come, Moore could receive another look in a starting role.

  • Marlins' Tyler Moore: Sits for second straight day

    Moore is not in the lineup Sunday against the Braves, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

    This marks the second game in a row that he'll ride the pine. Moore continues to struggle at the plate since assuming regular first base duties in place of the sidelined Justin Bour (oblique), so J.T. Realmuto will hop out from behind the plate to man first base while A.J. Ellis picks up a start at catcher.

  • Marlins' Tyler Moore: Out of Saturday's lineup

    Moore is out of Saturday's lineup against the Braves, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

    He has been given the bulk of the starts at first base since Justin Bour (oblique) landed on the DL, but will sit in favor of Tomas Telis, who will hit seventh. Moore is hitting just .129 with one extra-base hit and a 28.6 percent strikeout rate in 31 at-bats since taking on a more prominent role.

  • Marlins' Tyler Moore: Hits bench Tuesday

    Moore is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Nationals, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

    Moore has picked up most of the starts with Justin Bour (oblique) out of action, but the 30-year-old has responded by collecting just three hits in his past 24 at-bats. Moore will hit the bench as a result, allowing Tomas Telis to log a start at first base.

  • Marlins' Tyler Moore: Hits bench Wednesday

    Moore is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Rangers, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

    Moore seems to be in line for regular playing time with Justin Bour (oblique) landing on the disabled list, but he'll get the night off after two straight 0-for-4 showings. Tomas Telis will man first base in his place.

  • Marlins' Tyler Moore: Remains in backup role

    Moore is 23-for-84 with six home runs and six doubles with the Marlins this season.

    The 30-year-old took advantage of starting first baseman Justin Bour's stint on the disabled list in June, but most of his opportunities going forward will likely be as a bench bat. Moore has performed well as a pinch hitter this season (.286 average in 28 at-bats), but doesn't hold much fantasy value in most formats with Bour healthy.

  • Marlins' Tyler Moore: Moves back to bench

    Moore is out of the lineup Monday against the Nationals, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

    Moore recently finished a stretch of 11 starts in 12 games during which he provided five home runs, 14 RBI and 10 runs, but it looks like he'll lose out on regular playing time with Justin Bour (ankle) having returned from the disabled list Friday. The 29-year-old doesn't offer much in the way of positional versatility, so he'll likely have to settle for only a couple starts a week and the occasional pinch-hit opportunity.

  • Marlins' Tyler Moore: Homers, scores three times in win

    Moore went 1-for-3 with a home run, a walk and three runs in Wednesday's win over Oakland.

    Moore has been on quite a tear lately. In his last seven games, he's 12-for-26 (.462) with three home runs, nine RBI and seven runs. He's raised his average over 100 points to .288 with the hot streak.

  • Marlins' Tyler Moore: Three hits Tuesday

    Moore went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a run scored and two RBI in Tuesday's 8-1 win over the A's.

    He continues to rake, and Moore is now hitting .478 (11-for-23) over his last six games with two homers and eight RBI. Justin Bour (ankle) is targeting a Friday return to the lineup, but Moore's burst of production may allow him to keep a platoon role at first base even after Bour is back in action.

  • Marlins' Tyler Moore: Pounds two homers Friday

    Moore went 3-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI in Friday's 12-7 win over the Pirates.

    He's taking full advantage of Justin Bour's absence due to a bruised ankle, posting a .364/.375/.864 slash line over the last six games with three homers and nine RBI. Bour is still about a week away from returning to action, making Moore a solid short-term option for fantasy GMs looking for a boost in the power categories.

  • Marlins' Tyler Moore: In line for increased role

    Moore is in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Cubs, batting seventh and playing first base, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

    With Justin Bour (ankle) landing on the disabled list Tuesday, Moore seems to be the new primary option at first base for the Marlins. That said, J.T. Realmuto could move out from behind the dish to man the position occasionally, and Derek Dietrich can also play first base in a pinch.

  • Marlins' Tyler Moore: Homers in rare start

    Moore went 1-for-3 with a walk and a three-run home run in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Making his first start since May 24, Moore hit sixth and connected on his second homer of the season. With Justin Bour enjoying a career year, playing time will be hard for Moore to come by, but he should still see occasional action against tough left-handers and when the Marlins need a DH during interleague play.

  • Marlins' Tyler Moore: Gets starting nod Wednesday

    Moore is starting in left field and batting seventh Wednesday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

    With Christian Yelich out of the lineup due to a hip flexor injury, Marcell Ozuna will move to center field, allowing Moore to fill the void in left. In his first season with the Marlins, the power-hitting righty has made just two starts while compiling a .261 average. Yelich isn't supposed to miss more than a couple days, but Moore could be in line for more playing time if things change.

  • Marlins' Tyler Moore: Smacks clutch three-run bomb

    Moore connected on a pitch-hit, three-run home run with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning to plate all three of Miami's runs in Sunday's win over Atlanta.

    Moore has received just a single start all season, but he's gone 4-for-10 as a pinch hitter. Barring injury, he projects to remain in a bench role and thus largely off the fantasy radar.

  • Marlins' Tyler Moore: Receives call to big leagues

    Moore had his contract purchased from Triple-A New Orleans on Tuesday, Joe Capozzi of The Palm Beach Post reports.

    With Miguel Rojas (thumb) landing on the 60-day disabled list, a 40-man roster spot opened up for Moore to re-emerge in the big leagues. The first baseman found some success in the small side of a platoon with Justin Bour at first base to start the season, and he could resume that role if his performance at the plate warrants it.
