Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

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.

San Diego Padres

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]
