Less than two weeks shy of his 48th birthday…pitcher Jamie Moyer looks to be done after injuring his elbow while pitching winter ball in the Dominican.
This according to CBSSports.com:
Moises Alou, general manager for Escogido, Moyer’s Dominican team, told reporter Dionisio Soldevila that Moyer “probably won’t pitch again in his career” after re-injuring his elbow. If that’s true, it’s a sad end to a great career.
Moyer started 19 games for the Philadelphia Phillies this past season, but didn’t pitch after July 20 due to elbow problems. The lefty was rehabbing this winter in hopes of landing a job somewhere next year for his 24th Major League season.
For his career, Moyer has a 267-204 record (good for a .567 winning percentage), a 4.24 ERA and 2405 strikeouts. This past June, he surpassed Hall of Famer Robin Roberts on the all-time list when he gave up his 506th home run.
