Adam Moore Suffers Wrist Fracture
In what’s beginning to seem like an annual tradition, Adam Moore sustained a serious injury that will keep him out of action for weeks or months. Greg Johns reports that Moore broke the wrist while blocking a pitch in the dirt in the Cactus League game against Cincinnati.
Dave Cameron’s already made the requisite Chris Snelling analogy, but it’s not a good sign that his last two serious injuries have occurred in non-contact defensive plays – he’s not been hurt by a runner trying to score like Buster Posey, and it wasn’t a Verlander fastball that broke a bone. I feel bad for Moore who’d started the spring playing extremely well, and he’ll be able to play this season, but these injuries make his future as a catcher even more uncertain.
