Moyer tossed his first bullpen session since going down with a left elbow sprain Monday, throwing 20 "fastballs" and proclaiming he could return in October, but would defer to the Phillies on that decision, reports ESPN's Jerry Crasnick.
"My biggest goal is to prove to myself that I'm healthy and that I can pitch,'' Moyer said . Despite turning 48 in November, Moyer still plans on heading to camp with a team in the hopes of winning a job and getting one step closer to pitching until age 50.
Moyer made 19 starts on the season, posting a 9-9 record and a 4.84 ERA, showing he can still produce in the back of a rotation -- and perhaps contribute even more value if in a pitcher's park.
As solid as Moyer has been, however, I can't imagine the Phillies throwing a 48-year-old throwing slop in the fire against postseason-quality lineups with an arm three months removed from game action.
