Professional career[edit]

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim[edit]

Moore was drafted by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim out of North Caddo High School in the 6th round of the 2005 MLB draft. With the AA Arkansas Travelers in 2010 he hit .303 with 13 homers and 61 RBI and was selected as a Texas League All-Star.

He was called up to the Angels on September 1, 2011[2] and made his debut as a pinch hitter against the Minnesota Twins on September 2, flying out to left field. He recorded his first Major League hit on a weak single to third off Michael Gonzalez of the Texas Rangers on September 27. It was his only hit in 8 at-bats that season. He subsequently missed the entire 2012 season after undergoing hip surgery.[3]

Los Angeles Dodgers[edit]

He signed as a minor league free agent with the Los Angeles Dodgers on December 27, 2012. He got a late start due to his recovery from injury but eventually reported to the AAA Albuquerque Isotopes. He was later demoted to the AA Chattanooga Lookouts. He played in 80 games combined in the Dodgers minor league system in 2013, and hit only .211 with 7 homers and 31 RBI.

Tampa Bay Rays[edit]

Moore signed a minor league deal with the Tampa Bay Rays in January 2014. He became a free agent after the 2014 season.[4]
