Moyer's season over because of groin injury

September 30, 2009 10:00:48 PM PDT
Phillies pitcher Jamie Moyer will have season-ending surgery after tearing muscles in his groin and lower abdomen. The 46-year-old left-hander was 12-10 with a 4.94 ERA in 30 games, including 25 starts. He lost his spot in the starting rotation to Pedro Martinez in August and probably wasn't going to be on the team's postseason roster.

Moyer was injured on his final pitch in the seventh inning of the Phillies' 7-4 win over Houston on Tuesday night. He tore two tendons in his left groin and one in his lower abdominal region. He's expected to be ready for spring training.
