Major League Baseball notebook: Rays pitcher Moore to miss rest of season
• Rays left-hander Matt Moore will miss the remainder of the season after opting to have elbow-ligament replacement surgery. Dr. James Andrews is to operate next week on the 24-year-old pitcher, who made the AL All-Star team last year. Moore also experienced elbow soreness last season while going 17-4 with a 3.29 ERA. He was 0-2 this year despite allowing only three runs in 10 innings.
• Former Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett was diagnosed with a hernia but will continue to pitch and make his scheduled start for the Phillies on Wednesday. Burnett, 37, left in the fifth inning of Friday night's game against the Marlins. Doctors said that he eventually will need surgery.
• The Indians activated outfielder Michael Bourn from the disabled list before their scheduled game with the Tigers was postponed by inclement weather. To make room for Bourn, the Indians optioned outfielder Nyjer Morgan to Triple-A Columbus. Bourn missed Cleveland's first 13 games with a strained left hamstring.
• The Cardinals activated Mark Ellis from the 15-day disabled list and inserted him into the starting lineup at second base for Tuesday night's game against the Brewers. Ellis missed the first 13 games of the season with left knee tendinitis.
• Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia had a cortisone injection in his left wrist and hopes to return to Boston's starting lineup Wednesday. He was injured April 4 when Milwaukee's Carlos Gomez broke up a double play at second base in the ninth inning. Pedroia is hitting .139 (5 for 36) since then with one RBI and no walks.
