Jamie Moyer has asked for and received his release from the Orioles, the team announced. The left-hander had the option to get out of his contract if his contract wasn't selected from Triple-A.
Moyer, 49, has a 1.69 ERA with a 16K/0BB ratio in three starts for Triple-A Norfolk this year. The Rockies released the veteran earlier this month shortly after designating him for assignment. Moyer made ten starts for Colorado this year, posting a 5.70 ERA with 6.0 K/9 and 3.0 BB/9 in 53 2/3 innings.
