Rays Moore to make Thursday rehab start, rejoin Rays 9-3
The Rays will have LHP Matt Moore put his left elbow through one more test, a minor-league rehab start on Thursday, before rejoining the rotation on Sept. 3 in Anaheim.
After an encouraging simulated game Saturday, Moore hoped to pitch Thursday for the Rays. But team officials wanted to go more cautiously - and also take advantage of the Sept. 1 roster expansion - and wait.
The Rays haven't decided which team Moore will pitch for on Thursday.
Also, the Rays announced that OF Jason Bourgeois cleared waivers and accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Durham.
