Moyer doing well after minor surgery

PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies said left-hander Jamie Moyer is doing well following surgery Friday.

Moyer had to be hospitalized Tuesday following recurring symptoms from his sports hernia surgery Oct. 2. He took a battery of tests, including a MRI. Tests results showed a small collection of blood that could have been infected. Moyer had surgery to wash out the blood collection.

Moyer had to be hospitalized Oct. 7, five days after his initial surgery, because of a blood infection.

"Jamie is doing very well," Phillies physician Michael Ciccotti said in a statement. "The surgery is not likely to impact his rehab schedule and is likely to have minimal impact on his spring training schedule."

Ciccotti said Wednesday that Moyer remains on a timeline to be ready to compete in Spring Training.

The Phillies said Moyer is likely to remain hospitalized until Monday.

Bill Meyers performed Friday's surgery at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.
