The Mary Tyler Moore Show

DC Sports Nexus ---- Sunday, April 29, 2012

Just a day after Bryce Harper made his Major League debut, the Nationals have called up another left fielder, Tyler Moore, who will be replacing Mark DeRosa on the roster who went to the DL for undisclosed reasons.

Moore was at AAA Syracuse with Harper and was hitting better than the Chosen One.  He had 7 homers and 20 RBI's compared to Bryce's 1 homer and 3 RBIs.  He will most likely be used as a utility guy who can play the outfield and first base.

Rizzo claims they considered bringing up the better playing Moore instead of Harper but Moore wasn't ready for left field.  That is a funny thing to read about.  I'm sure that is why.  And looks like he is ready now? Those 3 days really helped. -MLB

This will probably just be a "cup of coffee" with players like Ryan Zimmerman and Michael Morse returning to the lineup from the DL at some point in time.  But it is a good chance for some experience for the young player.

Not sure what the deal is with DeRosa.  He hasn't been a good fill-in this season and his batting average is .081.  No that isn't a typo.  He has only 3 hits this year in 37 at-bats.  I think this move may mean the end of DeRosa on the Nats, and it is the right move.

We'll have to wait and see when Moore will get his first chance to help the team.
