Padres RHP Dustin Moseley has cleared waivers and elected to become a free agent.

Moseley was limited to just one major league start on the season before undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum and capsule in his throwing shoulder. The 30-year-old right-hander should return at some point in the 2013 season.

Padres transferred RHP Dustin Moseley from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot for Dale Thayer on the 40-man roster. Moseley underwent surgery Wednesday to repair a torn labrum and capsule in his throwing shoulder and will likely be out until some point during the 2013 season.

Dustin Moseley underwent shoulder surgery Wednesday.

Moseley was diagnosed last week with a torn labrum and capsule in his throwing shoulder. He's done for the 2012 season and is likely to miss part of 2013 as well.

Dustin Moseley could have surgery on his right shoulder May 2 in New York.

Moseley confirmed Friday that he has a tear to the capsule as well as the labrum in his right shoulder. He's scheduled to fly to New York next weekend and will meet with Dr. David Altchek on April 30. Assuming Moseley goes ahead with the surgery, he will miss the rest of the season and likely a big chunk of the 2013 campaign, as well.

Dustin Moseley could be out anywhere from 10-15 months if he undergoes shoulder surgery as expected.

Moseley has been diagnosed with a right shoulder strain, as well as some damage to his labrum. He'll receive a second opinion before a final decision is made, but he admits that surgery is "probably my only option because no one, with the things I've got going on in my shoulder, there really hasn't been anyone to come back and have longevity after a rehab. They kind of just break down again and continue to get it fixed."

Dustin Moseley conceded Thursday that shoulder surgery is probably his "only option."

Moseley was placed on the disabled list earlier this month with a strained right shoulder. An MRI revealed extensive damage, affecting the rotator cuff and labrum. It's not clear when he'll make a final decision on surgery, but it would almost certainly put the rest of the season at risk.

Padres manager Bud Black said an MRI on Dustin Moseley's right shoulder revealed "extensive damage."

"He's going to be shut down for a period of time that will take him past 15 days," Black said. "I know it's frustrating. I'm bummed for him." While Black wouldn't discuss a timetable for the right-hander, it sure sounds like surgery, which may or may not end his season, is possible. With Tim Stauffer (elbow) not quite ready, the Padres could call up Joe Wieland to make his major league debut Saturday.

Padres manager Bud Black said Dustin Moseley (shoulder) is expected to spend more than 15 days on the disabled list.

Black didn't elaborate more than that, but Dan Hayes of the North County Times said the MRI on Moseley's shoulder "didn't sound good." We'll update his condition when more is known. Anthony Bass will take Moseley's spot in the rotation on Thursday, and it sounds like he could remain there for a while.

Padres placed RHP Dustin Moseley on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right shoulder.

He evidently hurt himself during Saturday's outing. We'll update his status when more is known, but you'd have to think he'll probably need more than the minimum 15 days on the DL. Moseley had been slated to make his first start on Thursday, but now Anthony Bass or Micah Owings will probably get that assignment.

Dustin Moseley gave up five runs in five innings Saturday in a no-decision versus the Dodgers.

Moseley was a nice surprise with a 3.30 ERA last year, though it resulted in a 3-10 record in his 20 starts. At best, he's only worth using in NL-only leagues in his Petco starts, and Petco didn't do him too much good tonight.

Dustin Moseley gave up seven runs (four earned) over five innings Friday night against the Giants.

All seven runs scored in the fifth inning. Moseley allowed nine hits (including a three-run homer by Palbo Sandoval) while fanning two and walking two. This was the first time he has allowed more than two earned runs in a start this spring. The 30-year-old right-hander had a 3.30 ERA over 20 starts last season, but he's not worth owning outside of NL-only formats.

Dustin Moseley held the Brewers to one run on four hits over four innings of work Thursday.

He recorded a pair of strikeouts. Moseley wasn't so good in his first spring outing, but he's now given up just one run over his last seven frames while sporting a 5/0 K/BB ratio. He posted a 3.30 ERA and 64/36 K/BB ratio over 120 innings last season and could be a decent plug-and-play fantasy option for home starts.

Dustin Moseley took swings off a tee Tuesday for the first time since undergoing surgery on his left (non-throwing) shoulder last August.

Moseley admitted that he was tense during Tuesday's hitting session, which is understandable since he had the surgery after dislocating his shoulder on a swing last year. With that in mind, the Padres plan to bring him along slowly before he hits in a game. The good news is that throwing obviously isn't an issue. Moseley, 31, posted a 3.30 ERA and 64/36 K/BB ratio over 120 innings last season and projects to open 2012 in the Padres' starting rotation.

Padres and RHP Dustin Moseley avoided arbitration by agreeing on a one-year contract.

Corey Brock of reports that he'll make $2.0125 million this season. Moseley requested $2.55 million and was offered $1.5 million when arbitration figures were exchanged earlier this month, so the two sides settled for a little under the midpoint. The 31-year-old right-hander posted a 3.30 ERA and 64/36 K/BB ratio over 120 innings last season and projects to open 2012 in the Padres' starting rotation.
