Reporting for Sportsnet on May 15, John Molinaro advised Toronto FC was expecting veteran defender Drew Moor to be ready to return to the field for the first time since he was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat back in April. Per Molinaro, TFC's back-line leader has missed the team's last seven games.

Toronto has won its last six straight, so clearly it can cope without Moor at the back, but in the absence of starting center-back Nick Hagglund, the return of a proven starter to the defense will surely be welcomed by the team.
The Toronto Sun's Kurtis Larson echoed Molinaro's report, but noted TFC is understandably uncertain about Moor's ability to handle a full 90 minutes - it has been about six weeks since the defender last played a competitive game.
Drew Moor could return to the lineup Friday night, though coach Vanney tells me there's concern as to whether he's 90-minutes fit. #TFCLive— Kurtis Larson (@KurtLarSUN) May 17, 2017
