Blue Jays Release Jamie Moyer

The Blue Jays have released Jamie Moyer, reports MLB.com's Gregor Chisholm (on Twitter). Toronto signed the veteran left-hander to a two-start minor league contract late last month.

Moyer, 49, allowed ten runs in 11 inning during his two Triple-A starts with the Blue Jays. The Orioles signed and released him after three minor league starts last month as well. Moyer started the season with the Rockies but was cut loose after pitching to a 5.70 ERA in 52 2/3 innings.

“The hitters will tell me when I’m done.”

Somebody hasn’t been listening for a while.

You guys thought it was a decent to good signing a few months ago when I told you all to look at his FIP and xFIP over the past few years. You guys basically told me he will work out fine in the set-up role. Coming from a person that watched him for 4 years, I knew you would learn to know why we would always call him “Cardiac Cordero”.

I didn’t. I actually thought both Oliver and Cordero were bad signing just because they are at the end of their career.

However I’ve been proven wrong in the case of Oliver and right in the case of Cordero.

 I liked the Oliver signing a lot. Command crafty lefties can pitch for a long time. Didn’t like the Cordero signing and hate it even more now because of how many leverage situations he’s been used in.

Olivers a decent sign. He’s had his best 3 year the past 3 in a row!

Welcome to the Braves, Jamie! Welcome to the Braves.

(Oh, did I say Braves? I meant the Braves’ AAA affiliate.)

They just finished playing them here in Charlotte! I wish they could have signed him before that. Would have been cool seeing the old man in his farewell tour (which this obviously is at this point) at the Knight’s Castle.

 Nope.  He angered old man Chipper.  That is sacrilege in these here parts.  Glad the Braves helped knock him out of a job with the Rockies, though. I always like helping bring a “Brett Favre” kind of guy down.

He really just wants to beat Chris Schwinden on how many teams he can get on this year, that’s all.

Jaime, remember that recovery from TJ surgery takes longer for a ‘mature’ pitcher. Take the rest of the year off and come back next spring with the Mets on a minor league deal.

Jamie Moyer should go for a record of playing on every team this year.

You mean every Minor League team…

I can see him back in Seattle for a game and then retire…. or just retire.

What’s the record for most releases in a season? Or is that a censored question.

It looks like the end of the road, but I still would love to see him pitch in a major league game at age 50. He is quite a story, and has had a fine career.

Padres next?

Feel bad for Moyer, but his time is up.

From what I’ve seen of the Kansas City rotation he could make a few starts there.  I’m guessing he’ll only make it to KC when and if he is ever in the Atlanta organization though.

Time to hang it up and let someone else make a paycheck.

Moyer please go home and be ready for your next job (Pitching coach)

We will take him in Minnesota. We need all the starting pitching we can get.
