Scouting Moyer

This guy’s never been hurt in his life, posts a 3.48 ERA in Wrigley Field, goes to Texas and blows out a tricep throwing a curveball in late May….It is hard to guess with injuries, but I’d give him maybe a 40 percent chance of making a full recovery. He’s a better pitcher if healthy than his career record (32-43) and ERA (4.48) would indicate.
