Hometown hero Jamie Moyer is doing well after a surgical procedure on Friday to clear some blood that collected from his hernia surgery back on October 2. This was the second time Moyer had been hospitalized following that surgery. The first came on October 7 because of an infection.
Moyer was admitted to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital on Tuesday and the plan is that he will remain there until Monday, November 30.
Phillies physician Michael Cicotti expects Moyer to be ready in February when Spring Training kicks off for the 2010 season.
Moyer had become a fan favorite during the Phillies successful run to the 2008 World Series partly due to his local ties and partly due to his performance. Moyer, who turned 47 on Nov 18, is currently on the roster as the fifth stater in the Phillies rotation behind Lee, Hamels, Blanton and Happ. He will be entering his final year of a two year deal he signed shortly after the 2008 season.
