Left-hander Matt Moore, who is on the disabled list with a sore right knee, is shooting for Tuesday as the day he returns to the rotation. But the Rangers want to wait until after Moore throws a bullpen session on Saturday before making a final decision.
Spin: "He continues to progress," manager Jeff Banister said. "He'll have another bullpen session [on Saturday] and we'll see how he comes out of it." Moore threw 70 pitches in a batting-practice session on Thursday and said it went well. Moore and pitching coach Doug Brocail have been working on his delivery, trying to keep him more balanced and straight down the mound toward home plate.

Moore said he expects to be ready for Tuesday's game against the Mariners in Seattle. Rangers pitching coach Doug Brocail said Moore has used the down time to try to be more consistent with his delivery from pitch to pitch. When his delivery is right, he gets more on his fastball and better break on the curve. When he gets out of whack, the fastball velocity drops and the curve rolls, rather than breaking sharply.

(22. 5. 2018, 04:00:02, Chicago Tribune)
Normally, as the expression goes, you would say Nick Delmonico has little to do but twiddle his thumbs, but thatâ€™s the last thing the White Sox would want him to do with his broken right hand.
Delmonico suffered a fractured third metatarsal bone Friday when Rangers starter Matt Mooreâ€™s 92-mph fastball...
