Mariners catcher Adam Moore activated from 15-day disabled list
Moore spent last six days on rehabilitation assignment with AAA Tacoma
Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager Jack Zduriencik announced today that catcher Adam Moore has been recalled from his rehabilitation assignment at AAA Tacoma, activated from the 15-day disabled list, and optioned back to Tacoma.
Moore was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a fracture in the third metacarpal in his right wrist on March 28 (retroactive to March 24). He began a rehabilitation assignment at AAA Tacoma on April 5.
In five games with Tacoma, Moore is hitting .267 (4-for-15) with 2 runs scored, 1 home run and 4 RBI.
Moore was struck on the right wrist while blocking a pitch on March 6 vs. the Cincinnati Reds. He finished the game (2-for-2 with a double and 2 RBI) and iced the wrist after the game. He arrived at the ballpark March 7 and determined pain remained in the wrist, and it inhibited his ability to swing. An x-ray exam that day revealed a fracture in the third metacarpal in his right wrist.
Moore appeared in two games with the Mariners in 2011 batting .167 (1x6) with a double. He left the game April 6, 2011 at Texas with an injured right knee. He was placed on the 60-day DL on April 7 and underwent arthroscopic surgery April 12 to repair a medial meniscus tear.
