Jamie Moyer to work as ESPN analyst during rehab

Jamie Moyer will work as an analyst for ESPN while he rehabs

toward a comeback to baseball.

The 48-year-old lefty had Tommy John surgery on his pitching

elbow in December but wants to play again next season. In the

meantime, the 24-year major league veteran will serve as a

commentator on ”Baseball Tonight.”

”It’s a new challenge and I look forward to this forum as a

chance to elaborate on the art of pitching as I rehab from injury

this season,” Moyer said Wednesday. ”I hope to get back on the

diamond in the future.”

Moyer pitched for the Phillies the last 4 1/2 seasons, going 9-9

with a 4.84 ERA in 2010.
