Rays’ Moore to undergo X-ray on jaw


Tampa Bay Rays LHP Matt Moore said he will undergo X-rays on his jaw Monday to determine if he suffered any small fractures after being struck in the mouth Sunday by a line drive against the Boston Red Sox.

“I’m fine,” he said. “Just a fat lip.”

Rays RHP Alex Cobb, who missed two months last season after suffering a concussion when struck on the right side of his head, said he texted, “Welcome to the club,” to Moore on Sunday.

“He was a man,” Cobb said. “Finished the play. Showed me up.”

Rays manager Joe Maddon said he doesn’t expect Moore to miss any time providing tests do not show any damage.
