Guardians lost again to the Royals last night, 7-6. Good thing the game didn’t matter, because c’mon.
A more surprising thing happened earlier in the day when Matt Moore was suddenly claimed off waivers by the Miami Marlins. As far as I know, no laypeople even knew Matt Moore was on waivers.
Michael Kelly was activated to take Moore’s spot on the active roster.
Shane Bieber will take Moore’s spot on the 40-man when he starts on Friday.
Tom Hamilton said the plan is for Triston McKenzie to also pitch this weekend, on Sunday. He will also need to be re-added to the 40.
