Moore has come back from Tommy John surgery back in high school to become a factor in Vanderbilt's deep bullpen. He made just three appearances as a freshman and 10 as a sophomore, totaling fewer than 18 innings, but has served as Vandy's closer most of this season and had a team-high nine saves. He didn't give up an extra-base hit until the mid-May series against Florida, when he gave up two home runs and a double. While he's not intimidating on the mound at 6-foot-2, 205 pounds, Moore has closer stuff, starting with his fastball. It can be a swing-and-miss pitch in the strike zone, with velocity in the 92-96 mph range, and has solid life. Moore's breaking ball is more of a sweepy slider than a downer breaker, and he has a hard time repeating his release point. Some scouts believe his long arm action will preclude his breaking ball from ever being a swing-and-miss pitch, which could limit him to a set-up role. He also earns high grades for his makeup.
