ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Rays placed All-Star pitcher Matt Moore on the 15-day disabled list with a sore left elbow on Wednesday.
Moore (14-3) left Sunday’s start against the New York Yankees after just five innings. It was his 21st start of the season.
The 24-year-old left-hander is tied for second in the American League in wins and winning percentage (.824) and third in opposing batting average (.212).
The Rays called up infielder Ryan Roberts from Triple-A Durham on Wednesday to replace Moore on the roster.
