LEADING OFF: NL West showdown at Coors, M's Moore debuts

A look at what's happening all around the majors today:

WEST WINGS

The high-flying Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies wrap up their three-game series at Coors Field with a matchup of talented right-handers. Antonio Senzatela, a 22-year-old rookie, is 9-2 with a 4.10 ERA for the Rockies, while Zack Godley is 2-1 with a 2.34 ERA. The NL West rivals have two of the best four records in the majors.

WELCOME

Seattle pitching prospect Andrew Moore is set to make his major league debut, facing Miguel Cabrera and the Tigers at Safeco Field. The 23-year-old righty was called up this week from Triple-A Tacoma, where he was 3-1 with a 3.19 ERA. A second-round draft pick from Oregon State, Moore began this year at Double-A Arkansas.

LOOSENING UP

Atlanta star first baseman Freddie Freeman says he's ''100 percent'' ready to try playing third base, a move that would let the Braves keep Matt Adams' bat in the lineup. Freeman has been out since May 17 with a broken left wrist and hopes to return July 14. He took grounders at third base before batting practice Wednesday and made throws across the diamond. Adams was acquired from St. Louis after Freeman got hurt and has provided pop, but is limited defensively beyond first base.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Marlins Spanish-language announcer Rafael ''Felo'' Ramirez is back in Miami following a lengthy hospital stay in Philadelphia after he fell stepping off the team bus. Ramirez, who has called games since the team's inaugural 1993 season, turns 94.
