Until four years ago, medical professionals across Major League Baseball were not speaking the same language. The league finally installed an injury surveillance system, and in 2011 Michael Ciccotti was appointed to lead an elbow study group under baseball's medical advisory committee. Ciccotti, the Phillies' head team physician and director of sports medicine at the Rothman Institute, initiated research on the ulnar collateral ligament, now the most-discussed tissue in baseball.

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.

Lefthanded reliever Norm Charlton, who was released Monday by the Phillies, yesterday signed a major-league contract for the rest of the season with the Seattle Mariners. Charlton, 32, was Seattle's closer in 1993 - with 18 saves - before suffering a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow Aug. 7. With the Phillies this season, Charlton was 2-5 with a 7.36 ERA in 25 games. Charlton had a tryout with the Mariners yesterday and will report to the team tomorrow.

Pittsburgh Pirates catcher Jason Kendall will have reconstructive surgery today on his left thumb, but is expected to be ready for spring training. Following several days of tests, doctors determined yesterday that the ulnar collateral ligament in Kendall's thumb was damaged and could not be repaired by arthroscopic surgery. Although Kendall will need conventional surgery, he is expected to be able to swing a bat again in three months and should report for spring training on time in February.

Chicago Cubs righthander Kerry Wood passed another test yesterday when he threw curveballs for the first time since he underwent reconstructive elbow surgery last April. Wood, 22, threw to catcher Jose Molina from 55 feet in Mesa, Ariz., and was pleased with the results. "It went great," Wood said. "I had no pain. I was surprised. They were breaking pretty good, actually. " Wood, the 1998 National League rookie of the year, missed last season because of a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

Jayson Werth has taken another step toward becoming a former Phillie. As expected, Werth declined the Phillies' offer of salary arbitration before the midnight deadline Tuesday night in what was largely a procedural move. The Phillies still can negotiate with Werth and agent Scott Boras, but the move means that if Werth signs elsewhere, the Phillies will receive two high draft picks, because Werth is classified as a Type A free agent. The Phillies would get the top pick from the team that signs Werth - either a first- or second-rounder - and then a sandwich pick between the first and second rounds.

Arizona Diamondbacks lefthander Patrick Corbin has a partially torn ligament in his left elbow that may require season-ending surgery. Corbin said Sunday that he has a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament and was getting a second opinion with noted surgeon James Andrews before deciding whether to try to rehab or have surgery. Corbin had been designated the team's opening day starter against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Australia, but left Saturday's game against Cleveland in the seventh inning with forearm stiffness.

Clearly, sticking around the major leagues was a great career move for Roger Clemens. As dominant as ever after reversing his decision to retire, the 42-year-old Rocket easily won his record seventh Cy Young Award yesterday after taking the Houston Astros within one win of the World Series. He received 23 of 32 first-place votes and 140 points in the balloting by the Baseball Writers' Association of America to win the National League Cy Young for the first time after capturing six in the American League.

In his return to Yankee Stadium, David Wells was less than perfect. Traded to Toronto in spring training in the deal that sent Roger Clemens to New York, Wells was locked in a tie game when he walked Paul O'Neill and Bernie Williams to open the seventh inning. It wound up costing him the game as the Yankees ended the Blue Jays' eight-game winning streak, 6-4. With the score 1-1 and runners going, Chili Davis hit a double off the rightfield wall, giving the Yankees a 3-1 lead.

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - Trade speculation surrounding Cole Hamels will persist until the Phillies pull the trigger on a deal. That may not come until closer to baseball's July 31 trade deadline. But according to Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. on Sunday, one club has in the last couple of days "stepped up and has shown more particular interest" in the prized lefthander. Such a vague comment could be taken a multitude of ways but is certainly notable on a weekend when one potential Hamels suitor lost its ace and a published report pegged the New York Yankees as another.

Guys like Junior Griffey seem to go right from the senior prom to the majors with nothing in between. Guys like Trevor Plouffe take a bit longer. A first round pick of the Minnesota Twins in 2004, Plouffe was called up three times and sent back just as many. The only reason he was still in Minnesota on May 14 was because the Twins would have had to put him on waivers and risk losing him in order to send him back to Rochester. On that May 14, Plouffe was hitting .133 with one home run and three RBIs.

A visit to orthopedic surgeon James Andrews confirmed the Phillies' diagnosis of a bone chip and inflammation in Vance Worley's right elbow. Andrews immediately ruled out any serious problem with Worley's ulnar collateral ligament - which means no Tommy John surgery is needed. "Immediately after he grabbed my arm, he knew it wasn't Tommy John," said Worley, who visited the specialist in Pensacola, Fla. "Now I just have to go out and get it going. " Worley was not immediately sure of the plan for his return to the field.

CARDINALS ACE Chris Carpenter won't start Opening Day after a setback in his recovery from a bulging disk in his neck. The righthander returned to St. Louis on Tuesday for tests. He threw live batting practice Sunday but didn't feel right the next day. "He looked really good and felt good; the next day he just didn't respond like we had hoped," manager Mike Matheny said Wednesday. "His shoulder is just not responding and they're uncertain of the root of it. That's what they're trying to get to with tests on the neck and shoulder and trying to figure out where it's all coming from.
