Jamie Moyer went to the Dominican Republic to prove he could still pitch. Ultimately, he may have ended his career there while throwing in a winter ball game.
Moyer reportedly reinjured his left elbow in the third inning of a start Saturday for Escogido of the Dominican Winter League. The lefthander, who turns 48 next week, is a free agent and was hoping for a major-league invitation to spring training after pitching parts of five seasons in Philadelphia.
Instead, according to the Associated Press, Moyer traveled to California to seek a new diagnosis from Lewis Yocum, the specialist who told Moyer he did not need Tommy John surgery after injuring the elbow in July.
