While he’s not officially retired, pitcher Jamie Moyer will spend this season working as a analyst for Baseball Tonight. ESPN is expected to formally announce the addition of Moyer on Wednesday and his debut will come on Thursday.

Moyer had surgery last December to replace the ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow. He suffered the injury while pitching in the Dominican Winter Leagues.

At 48, Moyer hopes to pitch again in 2012.

“It’s been mentioned that I’d do well, blah, blah,” Moyer told USA Today on his new television career. “And as a player, you never know when your last year will be. And I’m not convinced I’ve had my last day.”
