Moyer headed to DL, Phils set rotation

BY foxsports • July 22, 2010

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Jamie Moyer is headed for the 15-day disabled list with an elbow injury that forced him out of his last start after only one inning.

The 47-year-old left-hander was hurt Tuesday and general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said he had a sprained ulnar collateral ligament and a strain of the flexor pronator. Amaro said Moyer would be out indefinitely, but the team hadn't determined whether he'd require reconstructive surgery.

Kyle Kendrick, optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley after surrendering three homers in one inning in his last start, will be recalled and pitch in his regular spot on Saturday.

The Phillies plan on recalling left-hander J.A. Happ to replace Moyer on Sunday.
