Moyer Injured, Career May Be Over


Jamie Moyer's career is probably over.  He injured his left elbow during his third start in the Dominican Winter League last night.

His team's manager, former Major Leaguer Moises Alou, told reporters that the injury was career threatening. There are not a lot of details yet, however, at this point, it's quite possible that his arm fell off. Moyer will fly to California to see Dr. Lewis Yocum.

Sad day for Jamie, but it might be time to hang it up.

    What a sad picture 🙁 I wanted to see him pitch until his age matched his number. If this is the end, I’ll also be sad that the Phillies weren’t able to give him some kind of happy retirement shindig or honor him at a game. But that’s just the sappy, sentimental, romantic baseball-loving side of me talking.

    EEB, why wouldn’t they be able to do it a game next year?

    Oh well, I guess when you are 48 any injury is a career threatening injury. Pretty amazing what he’s done the last 5 years. And a big story of their 2008 championship was how big Moyer came up in Game 3 of the WS. Not to mention the division clincher in 2007 as well.

    Nobody said moises was a major league coach, it clearly says he was a major league ballplayer, he coaches for the dominican league currently.

    If he retires, call or write the Phillies and beg them to give him a fan day and a 24 hour contract so he can retire in Red pinstripes!

    Jamie Moyer, a player or not will always be a Phillie, Ruben will find him a coaching spot.

    jim- to be fair, i originally wrote “manager” instead of “player”. I mad the fix later on

    how funny would it be if his arm was just laying by the mound and jaime was like “well this never happened before skip, i can probably give you another inning though”
