Rockies Release Jamie Moyer

The Rockies released left-hander Jamie Moyer, according to the transactions page at CBSSports.com. They had designated the 49-year-old for assignment last week. He has said he intends to continue pitching and MLBTR readers believe he'll find another opportunity.

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.

You had a good run Jamie and unfortunately, nothing lasts forever. Now on to your coaching career??

Maybe the Mets when Chris Young’s shoulder blows up again.

I’d be surprised if he doesn’t catch on somewhere. I know Boston’s looking for a starter but he’d probably get rocked in Fenway.

Boston is NOT looking for a starter. They’re already confused as to what to do with Cook, Bard & Matsuzaka … 3 starters, 1 spot…

They also have a bullpen full of former starters in Padilla, Rich Hill, and Andrew Miller but the rumor mill keeps saying they plan on trading Youk for a starter and so forth. I think they ARE looking for a starter but they also have a lot of in-house options if they cannot find the right guy.

Best bet is cut Cook, Bard to bullpen where he belongs and throw DiceK in the roto I think.
