Rockies Designate Jamie Moyer For Assignment

The Rockies designated 49-year-old left-hander Jamie Moyer for assignment, Tracy Ringolsby of Root Sports reports (Twitter link). The move creates space on Colorado's 25 and 40-man rosters.

Moyer, who turns 50 this fall, started ten games for the Rockies after signing a minor league deal with the team in January. He posted a 5.70 ERA with 6.0 K/9 and 3.0 BB/9 in 53 2/3 innings in his return from Tommy John surgery. Remarkably, Moyer's average fastball checked in at just 78.6 mph, according to FanGraphs.
