Jamie Moyer Jamie Moyer, who will turn 48 next month, will pitch for Escigido in the Dominican Winter League, Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer tweeted .

Moyer will join Phillies teammate Domonic Brown -- who is half his age -- on the roster.

Last week, Moyer told's Jim Salisbury that he was considering winter ball and felt good about his return from a sprained ulnar collateral ligament and strained flexor tendon in his left (throwing) elbow.

"I've passed all the medical hurdles that have been put in front of me," Moyer told Salisbury. "Talking with [team physician] Mike Cicotti, the next step in getting ready to pitch is facing hitters."

Moyer was not on the team's postseason roster and will be a free agent this season, but has said he wants to play another season. Moyer was 9-9 with a 4.84 ERA for the Phillies in 19 starts. He didn't pitch since leaving after one inning in a loss to the Cardinals on July 20.
