Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager of Baseball Operations Jack Zduriencik has announced the following medical update on catcher Adam Moore:
Moore, 27, blocked a ball in the game Tuesday, March 6 vs. the Cincinnati Reds. The ball struck Moore on the right wrist. Moore finished the game (and was 2-for-2 with a double and 2 RBI) and iced the wrist after the game. He arrived at the ballpark Wednesday (March 7) and determined pain remained in the wrist, and it inhibited his ability to swing.
An x-ray exam Wednesday revealed a fracture in the third metacarpal in his right wrist.
Moore will visit a hand specialist today, and have the wrist placed in a cast.
A timeline on Moore’s recovery will be announced following further examination.
Moore appeared in 3 games this spring, hitting .667 (4-for-6) with 4 runs scored, 1 double, 1 home run and 3 RBI.
Moore was limited to two games with Seattle in 2011(1-for-6/.167, with a double) after suffering a torn medial meniscus in his right knee on April 7 in Texas.
