Former Phillie Jamie Moyer To Work As Analyst During Rehab

BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — Jamie Moyer will work as an analyst for ESPN while he rehabs toward a comeback to baseball.

The 48-year-old lefty had Tommy John surgery on his pitching elbow in December but wants to play again next season. In the meantime, the 24-year major league veteran will serve as a commentator on “Baseball Tonight.”

“It’s a new challenge and I look forward to this forum as a chance to elaborate on the art of pitching as I rehab from injury this season,” Moyer said Wednesday. “I hope to get back on the diamond in the future.”

Moyer pitched for the Phillies the last 4 ½ seasons, going 9-9 with a 4.84 ERA in 2010.

    I couldn’t be happier for Jamie. As mentioned above a class act and a good guy. He deserves all the good fortune that may come his way.

    My dream has come true! I can’t wait to see Jamie on ESPN. i would of course love to see him back on the mound, or as a pitching coach in the future, but I will take him any way that I can get him. A great player, a great person, and the sexiest guy in the game. Love you Jamie!
