Jamie Moyer's Elbow Injury Will Send Him To DL

Very bad news out of Philadelphia:

Charlie Manuel said Jamie Moyer definitely is headed to the DL. Described injury as similar to J.A. Happ's injury.

J.A. Happ, for reference, hasn't pitched in the Majors since mid-April, although he's started seven games in the minors. Moyer, then, will miss significant time, which puts the Phillies in a bind. They're in dire need of a starting pitcher and are reportedly working hard to get one, but after losing to the Cardinals on Tuesday night, they dropped to seven back in the East and 3.5 back of the Wild Card.
