Moore won’t throw today

PORT CHARLOTTE Matt Moore felt some discomfort in his lower abdomen this morning and will not throw for a second straight day.
The rookie left-hander, who suffered a mid lower abdomen strain while throwing a bullpen session Friday, said he went to the trainers’ room upon arriving at the complex this morning and moved his body in a manner that put stress on the area.
“I felt it enough that we said no throwing today,” Moore said.
Moore’s scheduled live BP session for Wednesday is likely canceled, as well.
“If I throw tomorrow I’ll play catch,” he said.
Moore, who said he feels the pain near the end of his delivery when he is moving downhill off the mound, said it is frustrating.
“It is, but at the same time, I’m happy my arm is healthy and my legs are feeling good,” he said. “It’s a little hiccup. There are no red flags. It’s no different than if I strained my calf.”
