    Giants trade lefty Matt Moore to Rangers for two pitching prospects

    SAN FRANCISCO -- Texas acquired Matt Moore in a trade with the San Francisco Giants on Friday, raising the possibility of four left-handers in the Rangers' rotation.

    Texas sent minor league right-handers Israel Cruz and Sam Wolff to the Giants. The Rangers also received $750,000 in international signing bonus pool allotment from the Giants.

    San Francisco last month exercised Moore's $7 million option for 2018. He went 6-15 with a 5.52 ERA in 174⅓ innings last season, setting a career high for losses, as the Giants finished last in the NL West. He gave up a career-worst 107 earned runs.

    Cruz, 20, was 3-2 with a 5.91 ERA in three starts and nine relief appearances for the Arizona League Rangers in 2017 this year. Wolff, 26, was 2-3 with a 3.54 ERA and three saves in 16 games at Double-A Frisco this year and 2-2 with a 2.38 ERA in 24 games at Triple-A Round Rock. He had surgery in August to repair a torn right flexor tendon.
