Adam Moore injures right knee, Jack Wilson pulled from game in latest Mariners loss

The Mariners dropped more than just a 7-3 decision to the Texas Rangers today. They look to have lost catcher Adam Moore for some time. Moore is to have an MRI on his injured right knee tomorrow in Seattle.
He briefly limped into the clubhouse post-game and could barely take his socks off. He told us he injured the knee trying to plant his foot in the grass after racing to grab a ball that got away from him.
Expect some type of roster move tomorrow. The way he was limping, I don’t see how he could be ready to play Friday.
Jack Wilson told me moments ago that he wasn’t hurt by that takeout slide in the second inning, when he threw a ball away at first base — leading to a pair of Texas runs. Instead, the coaching staff approached him between innings and said a change was being made.
Wilson said afterwards he agreed with the decision.
“That right there is unacceptable to have that happen with the game we were getting from Felix (Hernandez),” Wilson said. “There was no excuse for it at all.”
I’ll try to update a bit later. Have a plane to catch.
