Moyer Rules Out Surgery

Jamie Moyer has ruled out surgery on his left elbow.

Moyer told mlb.com that he is scheduled for additional tests on the injury Tuesday “and that would be the final step in diagnosing the injury, and then I think I’ll probably get a second opinion.” The left-hander suffered a sprained ulnar collateral ligament and strained flexor pronator muscle, according to last week’s MRI, and hasn’t ruled out returning to action this year. But at his age, he knows one thing: “I don’t intend to have any surgery.”

Moyer's Career In Jeopardy?

Jamie Moyer Headed To DL

Charlie Manuel told reporters that Jamie Moyer will definitely be headed to the disabled list after leaving last nght's game with what was called a strained left elbow. He described Moyer's injury as similar to the one suffered by J.A. Happ. The same J.A. Happ who has spent nearly all of the first half of the season on the DL. Also the same J.A.

Obviously whenever you hear elbow problems for a pitcher you know it's bad. At this point, you'd have to think there's a half decent chance that Jamie Moyer pitched his last game tonight. Hopefully not.

In the immediate future, the Phillies are now in dire need of two starting pitchers. With Kyle Kendrick being optioned to AAA a day ago and now Moyer headed to the DL the Phillies need someone to start this Saturday and Sunday. One will almost assuredly be J.A. Happ, while other will likely come from outside the organization as Phils GM Reuben Amaro hinted tonight.
