General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. told Fox 29 News that Jamie Moyer will be the fifth starter headed into spring training.
Moyer, who had two surgeries this off-season, told Amaro that he would be ready to pitch once the season starts.
“It’s his spot to lose,” Amaro also said. If Moyer is unable to keep his job, Kyle Kendrick, Andrew Carpenter, or another minor leaguer could win the job. Moyer, 47, is in his last year of his contract.
If your still thinking about how awesome the Phillies rotation would be with Cliff Lee, then you should know that Lee just had minor surgery on his foot. Lee should not miss a significant amount of time, however.
