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.

Moehler:
“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.
