Moore expected to catch Odorizzi on Sunday

KANSAS CITY -- New arrival Adam Moore is likely to catch right-hander Jake Odorizzi, who'll make his Major League debut on Sunday against the Indians.

Moore, who has 68 games of big league experience with Seattle, was called up from Triple-A Omaha with Odorizzi and he caught him several times with the Storm Chasers. That's basically why manager Ned Yost decided to pitch Odorizzi on Sunday afternoon.

"It's as simple as this, and this was actually my thought process: I wanted to give Adam Moore a start when Odorizzi pitched and I wanted to give [Salvador Perez] a day off and Sunday was a good day to do it -- after a night game," Yost said.

So Moore is definitely in Sunday's lineup?

"Maybe," Yost hedged. "That's what I plan to do but between now and then, who knows what's going to happen?"
