Rockies Offer Jamie Moyer Minor League Deal

The Rockies are waiting to see if 49-year-old left-hander Jamie Moyer will accept a minor league contract offer, Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports. The Rockies would give Moyer the chance to compete for a rotation spot while tutoring younger pitchers on the staff. 

Moyer pitched for the Phillies in 2010 and missed last season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. He worked out in front of scouts this offseason and appears to have impressed the Rockies. Renck reported earlier today that the Rockies offered a veteran pitcher a contract. 

Moyer owns a 267-204 career record with a 4.24 ERA in 24 MLB seasons. He posted a 4.84 ERA with 5.1 K/9, 1.6 BB/9 and a 44.1% ground ball rate for the 2010 Phillies. 14 of the players on Colorado's 40-man roster were not born when Moyer debuted with the Cubs in June of 1986.

From all the moves I’m guessing the Monforts sat down and told O’Dowd and Apodaca that they are lucky they have jobs. Bringing in Moyer is essentially brining in another pitching coach for the young pitchers. The plethora of moves is essentially Dan O’Dowd being desperate to do something.

This does not bode well. That being said I’d love to see a 50 year old Moyer pitch although he won’t turn that till next NOV

Clearly the Rockies want to even up his career W-L record.

Thin air in Colorado means Moyer should at least hit 75 MPH with his hardest Fastball

Theres something you don’t see everyday a 49 year old in the minors, Jamie Moyer’s DNA should be showcased in a museum.

Wasn’t El Duque pitching up until a year or two?
