Moore, who is on the disabled list with left elbow soreness, threw four innings in a rehab start on Thursday, making Tuesday a distinct possibility, with David Price slotted into Wednesday's start.

"It all depends on what happens tonight," said Maddon, who would not reveal whether Sunday's starter is already with the team.
