Jamie Moyer Talks About His Elbow Surgery And Rehab

Jamie Moyer

Since 1996, only Greg Maddux, Randy Johnson, Andy Pettitte and Mike Mussina have won more games than Moyer. The veteran joined the Phillies in August 2006 after 10 seasons with the Seattle Mariners. Moyer left the Mariners as the team’s all-time leader in wins. His professional career also includes stints with the Chicago Cubs, Texas Rangers, St. Louis Cardinals, Baltimore Orioles and Boston Red Sox.

A pitcher in his mid-40s is routinely not a top five starter in the majors. However, Moyer’s 2008 Championship season was arguably one of the best performances of his career. He started 33 games for the Phillies and pitched 196-1/3 innings. He finished the year with a 16-7 record and a 3.71 ERA for the team he grew up watching as a fan from his home just 15 miles from Philadelphia.

The father of eight is extremely active off the field as well. He and his wife, Karen, founded The Moyer Foundation ( in 2000 with the mission to provide comfort and support to children enduring a time of profound physical, emotional or financial distress. With the community’s support, The Moyer Foundation has raised more than $20 million to support over 225 hundred different programs that directly serve the needs of children in distress.
