BALTIMORE -- Tampa Bay left-hander Matt Moore will miss the remainder of the season after opting to have elbow-ligament replacement surgery. New Balance Outlet España . Dr. James Andrews is to operate next week on the 24-year-old pitcher, who made the AL All-Star team last year. Moore will be the first Rays pitcher to undergo Tommy John surgery since Jason Isringhausen in June 2009. "I cant help out on the competitive side of this business right now," Moore said Tuesday before rain washed out the Rays game at the Orioles. "This is my first significant injury where Im going to be missing a lot of time." Manager John Maddon believes Moores decision will be beneficial in the long term for the pitcher and the team. "Its awful, but its great," Maddon said. "Its awful that were going to miss this guy for a bit. Its good for him to be able to get past this moment and look forward to a really long and prosperous career. Almost all of the time, percentage-wise, its a very successful operation." Moore hasnt pitched since walking off the mound with elbow soreness on April 7 in Kansas City. He was placed on the disabled list the following day. "It was an injury that I didnt think would be my ligament. I didnt think it was going to be something like that," he said. "It just didnt feel that severe." After throwing on the side Monday, Moore realized surgery was inevitable. "I dont think there was a whole lot of hesitation," he said, noting that he felt pain "on every single pitch." 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. Moore is among three Tampa Bay pitchers on the disabled list. Right-hander Jeremy Hellickson is recovering from arthroscopic right elbow surgery and right-hander Alex Cobb has a left oblique strain. "Its tough," starter David Price said. "Theyre going to be working hard. Theyre going to be trying to get back here. Whenever they do, its going to be a good little shot in the butt for us, and thats what you need throughout the season." Maddon already has been forced to improvise his rotation. Left-hander Erik Bedard was going to start for the Rays on Thursday, but because of the rainout, Price will take the mound in the opener of a series against the New York Yankees.

The NFLs worst-kept secret is that win or lose at Super Bowl XLIX, the Seahawks defensive coordinator will be soon be calling Buckhead home. For now, though, its all about finishing the job he already has as the steward of footballs best defense. I think all of us have those experiences where you have to juggle things at the same time, Quinn said at Super Bowl Media Day when asked about his pending job change. For me, just being here, I am having an absolute blast. While quarterback Russell Wilson and stud running back Marshawn Lynch get most of the ink for the Seahawks, its Quinns stifling defense which serves as the teams true calling card, and the New Jersey native has successfully built on what now-Jacksonville head coach Gus Bradley first cobbled together in the Pacific Northwest. The Seahawks stop unit led the NFL in scoring defense for the third consecutive season in 2014, becoming the first to accomplish that feat since the famed 1969-71 Purple People Eaters of the Minnesota Vikings, and just the third all-time (Cleveland 1953-57). Quinns unit also became only the fourth team in NFL lore to lead the league in fewest points and yards allowed in back-to-back seasons, and the first since the legendary 1985-86 Chicago Bears. And the Seahawks D has done all of that in the most offensively-skewed era in pro football history. We just honestly try to find unique guys and how fast we can play, Quinn said when describing his philosophy. Then, within each team, there are unique guys and how you feature the players. Really, it is just about featuring the guys and the roles they can do best. The unique guys in Seattle are athletic middle linebacker Bobby Wagner and members of the best secondary in football, featuring three All-Pro-caliber players in cornerback Richard Sherman as well as safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor. Quinn particularly raved about his last line of defense on Tuesday. They are two unique guys: Kam Chancellor andd Earl Thomas are both so different, Quinn said. Zapatillas New Balance Baratas. . Kam Chancellor, wed all look up at him right now at how big he is. We try to feature him in the things he does best like playing near the line of scrimmage and with Earl Thomas ... he is a speed backer, something that really jumps out in his game. The way he can play the middle of the field and coverages, the closing speed that he has, that is just one good example that you talked about with those guys and try to feature the guys in the best ways. With those, it is real clear what they do best. Over the Seahawks final six regular-season games, the club allowed a minuscule 6.5 points and 202 yards per game while collecting 24 sacks. It did not allow a point in the fourth quarter and yielded only 13 in the second halves during the six-game run. I think early on we got to the point where we were trying to be too perfect, Wagner said. We had to go back to realizing that its not about perfection, its about having fun and enjoying that time you have with your brothers. Once we got back to that, we really got going. It was a bittersweet irony because that run solidified Quinn on a lot of head- coaching short lists, and his pupils understand hes out the door after Sundays game. Few are feeling abandoned, however, with linebacker K.J. Wright calling his soon to be ex-teacher a defensive mastermind, while also lauding the Falcons for waiting out the process and sticking with a guy who wont be free until Feb. 2. I think hell be a really good head coach, Wright said. I dont expect him to be here next year. I know a lot of guys want him (back), but he shouldve been gone last year with what he did. Lets talk Atlanta. Theyve got a good offense, but the defense is struggling. So if he comes out there and gets that defense right, theyre an automatic playoff team. Quinn, though, has one more page to turn before making the Falcons that playoff team -- one that reads beating Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in back- to-back Super Bowls. This is such a cool experience, Quinn said. Where else would you rather be? Not in Atlanta ... at least not yet. ' ' '
