Jamie Moyer hasn’t given up hope of pitching again despite being 48 years old and sidelined for this season following Tommy John elbow surgery, but in the meantime he’s taken a job as a “Baseball Tonight” analyst, ESPN announced today.

According to the press release his television debut will come tomorrow and Moyer “will provide analysis on ‘Baseball Tonight’ throughout the season.”

Moyer, who is longtime ESPN basketball analyst Digger Phelps’ son-in-law, said that he plans to use the “forum as a chance to elaborate on the art of pitching as I rehab from injury this season” and added that he “hope(s) to get back on the diamond in the future.”
