KANSAS CITY -- Left-hander Matt Moore will make a rehab start on Thursday for Triple-A Durham at Gwinnett.
Moore is rehabbing from soreness in his pitching elbow.
"We think the weather is going to be better there," Rays manager Joe Maddon said on Tuesday. "We just don't want that to be rained out. That would really injure our plans. We just have to send him somewhere we believe he will pitch."
Moore would be on track to join the rotation Sept. 3 in Anaheim if there are no setbacks. The left-hander, who is 14-3 with a 3.41 ERA this season, has not pitched in a game since July 28 against the Yankees in New York.
