#7 Matt Moore’s 2013
Matt Moore’s 2013 season was spectacular. Like Archer’s 2015 season, Moore made his first and only All-Star team and finished in the top-10 for Cy Young voting.
- Record: 17-4
- ERA: 3.29
- IP: 150.1
- ERA+: 117
- K: 143
- WAR: 2.6
Matt Moore’s 2013 campaign was brilliant. His 17 wins are fourth all-time in Rays history, while his winning percentage of .810 ranks first all-time. In seasons where he made more than 3 starts, his 117 ERA+ and 3.29 ERA are both career bests. He won five more games than anyone else on the staff in 2015, the next closest was Jeremy Hellickson.
During the 2015 All-Star Game played at Citi Field, Moore threw one shutout inning. In that inning he retired Carlos Gonzalez, Yadier Molina, and Troy Tulowitzki. It can be argued that had Moore thrown more innings that he he would have finished higher in the voting for the Cy Young award and possibly won it.
Regardless of his ranking the Cy Young ballot, Matt Moore had a truly remarkable season on the mound for the Rays.
