Rockies Release Chad Moeller

The Rockies have released catcher Chad Moeller, reports Jim Armstrong of the Denver Post (as tweeted by his Post colleague Troy Renck).  According to the club's official Twitter feed, the move was made so Moeller "can seek more playing time with another team."

Moeller, 36, signed a minor league deal with Colorado in January.  The 11-year veteran has also played for the Twins, Diamondbacks, Brewers, Reds, Dodgers, and Orioles in his career, plus two stints with the Yankees, including nine games with the Bombers last season. 

Moeller has never provided much pop (a .640 career OPS) but it wouldn't be a surprise seeing him sign with another team that is in need of an experienced catcher.  Two clubs in the last week alone have had vacancies open up behind the plate -- the Astros (in the wake of Jason Castro's season-ending injury) and the Padres (now that Gregg Zaun has retired).
