Moore had been Adam LaRoche's primary backup at first base, and with LaRoche battling right quadriceps soreness, that job now likely will fall to Kevin Frandsen. The veteran utility man has played mostly left field this season but made 35 starts at first base for the Phillies in 2013.
Moore was one of the final roster cuts at the end of Spring Training and began the season with Syracuse before being recalled on April 6. He has played 18 games, making two starts in left field and three at first base, going 6-for-30 (.200) with a double, two home runs and 13 strikeouts.
