Tigers pitcher Matt Moore underwent surgery on Wednesday to repair the meniscus on his right knee. The damage was greater than expected and the lefty will miss the rest of the season as a result,’s Jason Beck reports. Moore was originally expected to miss four to six weeks.

Moore, 29, tossed seven shutout innings against the Blue Jays on March 31, then held the Royals scoreless over three innings on April 6 before exiting with what was diagnosed at the time as a right knee sprain.

Moore, earning $2.5 million for the 2019 campaign, can become a free agent after the season.
