Sunday afternoon report: Moore better
LHP Matt Moore was among the pitchers throwing live batting practice on Sunday, and said the initial results of the return to his previous off-season conditioning program were positive,
"Where I was last year on the mound in that first live batting practice, I was a a lot more encouraged walking off the hill (Sunday),'' he said. "The hitters' feedback, where the ball was winding up and where my effiort level is, I think all of those things are ahead of where we were 12 months ago.''
2B Ben Zobrist remained limited to light activities Sunday, though said his tight and sore back continues to improve. He hopes to get on the field at least for some light drills by Tuesday.
Manager Joe Maddon and Rays executives met with MLB officials and reps from other teams on Sunday to go over details of the new expanded replay system.
