Dustin Aaron Moseley (born December 26, 1981) is an American Major League Baseball pitcher

Career[edit]

Moseley was selected by the Cincinnati Reds in the first round (34th overall) of the 2000 Major League Baseball Draft. Prior to the 2004 season, he was ranked by Baseball America as the fourth best prospect in the Reds' organization. Moseley was traded to the Angels' organization in for pitcher Ramón Ortiz in 2004.[1]

Los Angeles Angels Of Anaheim[edit]

Moseley won his first game as the starting pitcher for the Angels in his Major League Baseball debut on July 17, 2006. With injuries to key starters Bartolo Colón and Jered Weaver, Moseley began the 2007 season in the Angels starting rotation. After the return of Jered Weaver, he was moved to the bullpen in middle relief.

Moseley had surgery to repair an ulnar nerve following the 2007 season.[2] He had hip surgery during 2009 season.[2]

Moseley became a free agent after the 2009 season.

New York Yankees[edit]

Moseley pitching for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees, Triple-A affiliates of the New York Yankees, in 2010.

In 2010, Moseley was a non-roster invitee to spring training with the New York Yankees.[3] He began the season with the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees. On July 2, 2010, he was called up to the Yankees.[4] He was inserted in the Yankees' starting rotation, while Andy Pettitte was on the disabled list.[5] He was non-tendered after the season.[6]

San Diego Padres[edit]

After the 2010 season, Moseley signed a one year contract with the San Diego Padres.[7] He struggled during the season partly due to a lack of run support. On July 26, he disclocated his left shoulder after getting a base hit, which ended his season with a 3-10 record and 3.30 ERA (a career best) in 120 innings.[8][9] On May 7, 2012, Moseley was again placed on the disabled list due to labrum damage in his right shoulder.

After making only 1 start in 2012, Moseley elected free agency after clearing outright waivers. Moseley was a non-tender candidate by the Padres.[10]

Pitching repertoire[edit]

Moseley relies primarily on an 89-90 mile per hour four-seam fastball, and also throws a curveball and a changeup.
