Report: Jamie Moyer Signs With the Blue Jays

According to Shannon Drayer of ESPN Radio 710 in Seattle, Jamie Moyerhas signed with the Blue Jays and

will report to their Triple-A affiliate in Tacoma.  This was according to a tweet from Drayer in which he made it clear the news was not official.

Moyer was released by the Orioles after pitching in three games for Norfolk.  Moyer is looking for another shot at the big leagues and it didn’t seem he would get that opportunity anytime soon with the Orioles.

While it seems Moyer will start with the Blue Jays Triple-A team, Toronto must have offered a more concrete chance of pitching in the Majors.  Moyer last pitched in the Bigs on May 27th with the Rockies.

Moyer was 2-5 with a 5.70 ERA.  He became to oldest pitcher to win a Major League game earlier this season against the Padres.  In his career, Moyer is 269-209 with a 4.25 ERA.  He is 49 years old, and if he does in fact sign with the Blue Jays, it will be his ninth Major League team.

    Seems like a good fit actually… the Blue Jays rotation is currently rocked with injuries to all their opening day rotation save Ricky Romero (with two more potentials Jesse Litsch and Dustin McGowen sustaining longterm injuries in spring training).

     @JamesFoster1 As long as the Jays intend to use him and not let him toil away in Triple-A, I agree.  I understand with the O’d there was nowhere to promote him to, but still the guy is a Major League pitcher and if you’re going to sign him, let him pitch on the Major League club.
