Moyer, Dobbs free agents
Posted on: October 28, 2010 5:55 pm
Jamie Moyer and Greg Dobbs have been removed from the Phillies' 40-man roster and both have elected to become free agents, the team announced.
Moyer, who will turn 48 in November, saw his season end with an elbow injury in late July. He is currently pitching in the Dominican Winter League and hoping to land a job next spring. The Phillies seem like a natural option to bring him back, either as a back-end starter or middle reliever. He went 9-9 with a 4.84 ERA in 19 starts in 2010 while making $6.5 million. Moyer, who has played 24 major-league seasons, is the active major league leader in wins, losses, starts, earned runs, innings and strikeouts, and last season became the all-time leader in home runs allowed.
Dobbs, primarily a third baseman, batted just .196/.251/.331 in 163 at-bats last season. He was sent to the minors twice and didn't make Philadelphia's postseason roster.
