Matt Moore Has Successful Tommy John Surgery

Andrew Astleford of Fox Sports Florida has announced that Rays left-hander Matt Moore’s tommy john procedure was a success this afternoon.

The recovery period for the surgery is generally right around a year, so the Rays can hope to have the lefty back some time at the beginning of the 2015 season. However, Moore might take a little longer to get back to form because he relies on his fastball velocity and velocity is one of the last things to come back for pitchers after the surgery.
