2011 How long has Moehler been around? He was once suspended by American League president Gene Budig. Remember league presidents? That was back in 1999, when Moehler was pitching for the Tigers and umpires found sandpaper taped to his thumb. Many years have passed since, and even without the aid of foreign substances (presumably), Moehler has quietly pieced together a long career as a journeyman. However, he might be nearing the end of the line after tearing a tendon off a bone in his groin area last August, an injury that required reattachment surgery (and made men everywhere cringe). The Astros decided not to re-sign Moehler as a free agent, and as a 39-year-old coming off surgery, he faces an uphill climb back to the majors.
2010 Surely, most of you have skipped ahead by now to start reading about Roy Oswalt, or maybe the Royals, no? I mean, if Moehler’s on your fantasy team, how deep is your league? Scuffy’s your basic bit of veteran back-end rotation filler, better than his 2009 ERA, but not quite as good as his 2008 mark. He's probably worth having around, but not if he's going to push Bud Norris or Felipe Paulino out of the rotation. The Astros picked up his modest $3 million option for 2010, so he'll get at least one more go-round. At 38, it's entirely possible it could be his last.
2009 Moehler re-signed with Houston last January after finding no interest elsewhere. He started the season pitching long relief in meaningless situations, and not very well. Injuries forced him into the rotation, and for a good chunk of the year he ranked as the Astros' top starter in ERA, relying on a sinker, cutter, slider, changeup, and above all location, rarely breaking 90. He earned himself another year, the Astros extending his contract in August.
2008 Hey, remember when scuffing a baseball was considered the height of cheating in baseball? You know, all the way back in 1999 when nobody was paying attention to that other stuff? Moehler's use of sandpaper to help his breaking ball earned him notoriety, a suspension, and a nickname. Nearly a decade later, just one of those persists, as Scuffy's attempt to gain an advantage seems almost quaint in the post-Mitchell Report era. Moehler is a replacement-level pitcher who serves as little more than a jumping-off point for a story.
2007 Scuffy lost his rotation spot to Anibal Sanchez, and, at the end of the year, said that he just doesn`t have what it takes to be a starter any more. It`s true. A free agent at this writing, he`s unlikely ever to land a steady gig again.
2006 After a year off recovering from TJ surgery, Scuffy was roughly what he had been, a hittable pitcher with good control. The Marlins brought him back on a one-year contract, but with the plethora of pitching prospects clamoring for auditions, Moehler should be dealt as soon as he puts together consecutive quality starts--assuming he puts together consecutive quality starts.
2003 Picking up Moehler in late July on the premise that he was going to help the team catch St. Louis was silly, not even allowing for the fact that they knew he wasn’t close to 100% following 2001 shoulder surgery. Bowden compounded the gaffe by using David Espinosa, the organization’s only semi-legitimate middle infield prospect, as bait. Even at full strength, Moehler is little more than a journeyman starter. With slim pickings on the free agent market, he’s taking a shot at pitching in Houston.
2002 Among the many reasons to suspect that the Tigers will improve in 2002, the return of Brian Moehler ranks near the bottom of the list. His reputation in Detroit far exceeds his actual performance, and he was walking on thin ice before the injury: Moehler has never struck out more than 5.2 men per nine innings, a poor mark in today’s whiff-happy era. His value comes from bulk innings, which will be of little use to Detroit if the Tigers’ young arms have come along as far as Randy Smith thinks they have.
2001 Some players can’t make the adjustment when their bread-and-butter move is taken away. Ross Barnes was never the same hitter after the fair-foul rule was revoked. Although his dream of being a spokesperson for Western Garnet was dashed, Brian Moehler appears to have survived having the scuff ball removed from his arsenal. He compensated for being more hittable last season by lowering his walk rate into the Maddux Zone. Moehler walks a thin line but should be an acceptable back-of-the-rotation guy for a few more years.
2000 You know, his success had been a mystery to us. But consider the case solved: he went 7-13 with a 5.24 ERA after getting caught scuffing the ball. He did pitch much better the last two months of the year, walking just 15 men in 73 innings. That doesn’t mean he wasn’t cheating again; Gaylord Perry was one heck of a control pitcher. Not to encourage such behavior, but if he wants to stay in the big leagues, he probably can’t rely on his ability.
1999 “Coming up next on ‘Whatever Happened To?’ on VH1: Drexy’s Midnight Runners, Flock of Seagulls, and that wonderful duet between Jeff Ballard and Mike Dunne, with special guest star Allan Anderson!” The history of baseball is paved with the careers of starting pitchers who found success without striking anyone out, and petered out soon thereafter. Moehler isn’t quite in the Ballard class of finesse, but he has yet to strike out more than 5 men per 9 innings, and at 27 is unlikely to improve on that. He does have a fine sinker and I think he could still fool people for another year or two, but I certainly wouldn’t want to sign him to any five-year deals.
1998 Not bad, really. Didn’t push the club towards a title, but it could have been worse. Moehler has to be on to be effective; he’ll bounce around for a few years at about league average, and a starting pitcher that can do that will make a lot of money and help a lot of teams. Will outperform the projection above.
1997 The Tigers also gave Moehler an audition last September, but he has even less talent than Miller. The Tigers assistant GM described Moehler as having “average big league stuff,” and that was meant as a compliment. When words like “he’s a real competitor” and “he eats up innings” are used to describe a pitcher, it’s usually the kiss of death. Moehler’s numbers certainly don’t suggest he’ll be anything more than a tenth man.

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-08-17 14:45:00 (link to chat)Given Jordan Lyles's success this year, do you think he figures into the Houston rotation next year?
(Lyles from Houston)
Well, if Brian Moehler has figured into their rotations recently, I don't see why not. Let him pitch in spring training, and take it from there. Maybe he isn't in the rotation at the onset of the season but he could be there by the summer. The Astros finally seem to understand what they need to do, and keeping someone that could develop more at the major league level, in the minors, is not progressive or helpful to the organization. Then again, he should be close to ready -- we don't want another Homer Bailey situation. (Eric Seidman)
