Some unfortunate news for anybody pulling for Jamie Moyer in his attempt to pitch a 25th season in the majors.

According to reports out of the Dominican Republic, the soon-to-be-48-year-old lefty has re-injured the elbow that sidelined him for the last two months of the 2010 season.

Dionisio Soldevila, a journalist in the Dominican Republic, reported via Twitter that Moyer left a game after two innings Saturday with pain in the elbow. Moyer has been pitching for Escogido in winter league ball in the Dominican in an attempt at preparing himself for spring training, when he hopes to compete for a starting job somewhere in the majors. Moyer, who joined the Phillies midway through the 2006 season, was unlikely to return as a free agent.

Soldevila said that Escogido general manager Moises Alou told him that Moyer's injury is probably career-ending. Soldevila also said that Moyer is scheduled to visit Dr. Lewis Yocum in California. That's all the information I have at the moment. Moyer turns 48 on Nov. 18.
