Jamie Moyer underwent succesful Tommy John surgery to repair the ulnal collateral ligament in his left arm today in New York, according to a press release issued by his foundation. The surgery was performed by Dr. David Alchek.

“Thanks to the advances in surgery many pitchers have made successful returns to the mound after undergoing surgery similar to mine," Moyer is quoted as saying in a statement. “I look forward to the challenge of making a comeback for the 2012 season. I love this game and I still believe I can be a successful pitcher in the big leagues. Prior to the injury I was feeling great and throwing well. I want to thank everyone for the kind words and good wishes.”

Moyer, who injured the elbow in July with the Phillies, was pitching in the Dominican Republic in winter ball when he suffered the latest injury in his third start.
