As the Phillies continue to do their off-season work, three more players have officially hit the free agent market. Pitcher Jamie Moyer, utility player Greg Dobbs and catcher Paul Hoover were all removed from the 40-man roster and elected to become free agents.
None of the moves were unexpected.
Moyer is headed to the Dominican Republic to pitch winter ball as he hopes to show that he’s healthy and still has some gas left in the tank. Moyer’s contract expired at the end of the season, so dropping him from the roster is merely procedural.
