He's expected to start the season on the disabled list.
"I was tender there after that last outing so I figured we would give it a little time off and I feel a lot better now," Moran said. "It has not going exactly how I would have hoped but I'm feeling better and that's all I can ask for right now. Hopefully, I'll get out on a rehab assignment sometime."
The Angels would have to offer Moran, a Rule 5 Draft selection, back to the Mariners if he's not on the active roster, but can keep him while he's on the disabled list.
