Moore put on a show in 2020’s mini-season, batting .255/.358/.496 in 38 games, but it was a flash in the pan. Last year he reverted to the form we saw in his rookie season of 2019 and that was suggested by his minor-league career: poor contact, moderate power, good speed, and excellent defensive versatility. His .181/.276/.334 line from ’21 is probably as much as one can expect out of the southern California native, though with a few home runs. His real value comes on the other side of the ball—Moore can play seven positions well, has pitched in a blowout, and if asked he'd probably suit up to catch. He's mostly been used in right field this season, platooning against lefties while Mitch Haniger is out of action, but anywhere you put him he can handle it well. He's also a weapon on the basepaths; having stolen 21 bases in 26 attempts last year and four more thus far in ’22, Moore is a formidable presence once aboard. It's just the getting on in the first place that's the problem.
