Brian Moehler done for year, wants to come back

Brian Moehler has elected to have surgery on his lower abdomen September 1 in Philadelphia after feeling discomfort in his first rehab start in Round Rock last night.

“I’d like to play next year, but we’ll see what happens."

With Myers, Wandy (presumably), Happ, Norris, and Paulino/Wright/Lyles, I can't see room for Moehler on the 2011 staff.

I like the job that Brian Moehler has done for the Astros, as the starter-of-last-resort. But Moehler is getting long in tooth and will likely see no interest as a FA next offseason.

The Astros also appear to have found a younger starter-of-last-resort version in Nelson Figueroa.
