Brian Moehler underwent successful surgery on his right knee. What was the surgery? McTaggart says it was to repair a torn tendon. JJO says it was to clean up loose particles. Maybe it's the same. I have a degree in history, so what do I know?
Regardless, trainer Nate Lucero says Moehler should be ready for the start of Spring Training. But what does this do to the 37-year old's value? JJO's story says that the Astros can exercise his option (and Moehler can decline), or they can pay the $250,000 buyout.
“We're very pleased with what Brian's done for us. But I want to talk to our guys internally before we make any decisions.”
