BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 After a surprising 2011 campaign, Moseley made his first start last year on April 7 and survived five innings. He landed on the disabled list a day later, and had surgery to repair his right labrum and rotator cuff a few weeks later. At his best, Moseley serves up grounders and can work in a variety of roles, ideally low-leverage ones for a team hoping to contend.
2012 The Padres signed Moseley, who worked under Bud Black when Black was the pitching coach in Anaheim, to a one-year, $900,000 deal. A reliever for most of his career, Moseley came to San Diego in part because he would be given a shot at the rotation. Despite pedestrian stuff, he pitched surprisingly well in that role and put together a career year before seeing his season end in July due to a dislocated left (non-throwing) shoulder incurred while swinging a bat. Moseley required surgery and is expected to be ready for spring training, although which team's uniform he will be wearing remains an open question.
2011 Moseley is a perfectly acceptable last man on a starving manís pitching staff, albeit one far better suited to extremely low-leverage relief work than starting assignments. The Yankees are far from starving, with a league-pacing payroll and any number of pitching prospects on the cusp, so it is difficult to understand why they would choose to throw away nine starts on a pitcher with no past, present, or future. They then dragged that same non-entity onto the post-season roster along with Sergio Mitre because when youíre competing for a championship, itís really important to have your blow-out pitching needs covered. Conclusion: Moseley possesses photos of Derek Jeter kicking an orphan. Despite the potentially damaging evidence, the Yankees non-tendered Moseley in December. The Padres signed him to a one-year, $900,000 contract, perhaps operating under the impression that Petco can change any schmo into Jake Peavy.
2010 Throughout Moseley's career, batters have hit .275/.336/.414 when facing him for the first time in a game, .365/.401/.556 thereafter. Nonetheless, hope sprung eternal when he gave the Angels two good starts amid their April tribulations. The fun didn't last, as Moseley soon wound up on the DL due to the inflammation of a nerve running from his neck to his elbow, then needed surgery to repair a torn hip labrum in August. Although non-tendered by the Halos, he should be ready in time for camp with somebody, but unless doctors implanted some mid-90s velocity, he's unlikely to turn a corner.
2009 With the Angels' rotation banged up to begin the season, Moseley began the year as the team's fifth starter, but quickly pitched his way out of the job before hitting the DL with forearm soreness. Once he returned to action, he pitched no better. A highly regarded prospect when he was dealt to the Angels by the Reds for Ramon Ortiz, Mosely has a four-pitch mix centered on a cutter and a curve, but he doesn't have enough finesse to make it work at the big-league level. Last year was his big chance to establish himself, and he failed with sinking colors.
2008 Moseley was a ground-ball machine in the first half, with a better than two-to-one groundball-to-flyball ratio above and a 2.60 ERA to match. After that, his GB/FB ratio was just 1.25, and he doesn't have the stuff to survive that as his 6.13 ERA and .468 SLG allowed in the second half proved. Moseley's more suited to starting than relieving, but the addition of Jon Garland, a comparable pitcher, cuts off his opportunity to do so.
2007 When you were a freshman in college, did you have a classmate who, doomed by genetics, lost all of his hair before the year was out? Think about him--already carrying the mark of an older man by his nineteenth birthday. Moseley`s lot is much like that of someone with a prematurely exposed pate: Lacking any particularly reliable out-pitch, Moseley`s destiny is to be a Quadruple-A hurler, casting about for emergency starts and the off chance that some really bad ballclub will somehow back into having him on their roster. It`s the sort of thing that ought to encourage a guy to look up Mike Scott and ask for a tip or two on how to conjure up an unhittable forkball.
2006 If you`re only packing a fastball that tops out around 90, it`s imperative that you find some way to miss bats if you`re going to make the O.C. Although he can throw four different pitches for strikes, Moseley saw his strikeout rate crater this year in Salt Lake, and with it went his reputation as a prospect. At this point, there`s no sense in thinking that Moseley will ever be anything more than a fifth starter type in the majors, if that.
2005 The Reds and other teams get plenty of flak for picking highly-touted high school pitchers who command top draft choices and flame out due to injuryódeservedly so. But there's another downside to taking high school arms: Scouts conjure up images of stardom for tall, projectable preps, envisioning an added four to five miles per hour on the young pitcher's fastball by the time he makes the bigs. All too often that velocity jump never materializes. In the end, you're left with someone like Moseley, whose fastball never got faster, now projected as a back-end starter at best. Traded to the Angels for Ramon Ortiz in the off-season, even though Ortiz was about to be non-tendered.

2012-02-23 11:00:00 (link to chat)Dustin Moseley. Can he give the Pads a full year similar to that of his 2011 campaign?
(San Fran Dave from San Francisco)
Moseley was surprisingly effective last year before getting hurt. If he stays healthy, he should be able to make 25-30 starts and not embarrass himself. (Geoff Young)
2010-10-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Joe Giradi, Kerry Wood, Sergio Mitre. The yankees were doomed from the start. It takes more than 200 million to overcome the ex-cub factor!
(Mike Royko from Beyond)
Well, Kerry Wood has been excellent for the Yankees, but more seriously, I was confused at the start about putting both Mitre and Dustin Moseley on the roster. It's a bit like a military staff meeting before a big battle, and the chief of ordinance says, "Well, we've equipped everyone with guns, knives, hand grenades... We've got cannons, we've got shells..." and the general-in-chief says, "Be sure to pack the white flags." Why do you need two blow-out pitchers in a series in which you can never stop playing for a comeback. You can spare the staff in the regular season, but if you do it in the postseason, you're going to GO HOME. I just don't get it. I've been on about this at the Pinstriped Bible for three weeks now.
