Adam Moore, out 4-6 months

Catcher Adam Moore had surgery today to repair torn meniscus in his right knee, and while he’d hope the damage was minimal, reality was harsh.

The surgery was major, and Moore’s rehabilitation will be 4-6 months in duration, which likely ends his 2011 campaign after six at-bats. Whatever Moore had hoped to prove this season, and whatever the team had hoped to learn about his future, is now on hold.

A sixth-round draft pick in 2006, Moore was once considered the catcher of the future, with then teammate Rob Johnson his backup. Now, Johnson is in San Diego and Moore on the disabled list.

In 448 minor league games, Moore batted .303 with 58 home runs and 277 RBI. With the Mariners, he has played 68 games and atted .194 with five home runs and 17 RBI.s

Miguel Olivo is the starting catcher and, now, Chris Gimenez is the reserve.

  1. Losing Johnson is starting to look huge. If Olivo gets hurt………….. What was the aa guy’s name who looked so good in spring training……. was it Steve Baron?

    Let’s also get Bard up here in place of Giminez NOW. Olivo is a joke & should be backing up Bard.

  2. If Carlos Silva was a catcher, he’d be……….. Miguel Olivo.

    It’s time to fire Jack Z. Grr. Olivo just gave up 2 runs by STUPIDITY.

  3. Not to sound like a broken record…………., but could we PLEASE bring up Josh Bard???
