As first reported by the Denver Post‘s Troy Renck, veteran lefty Jamie Moyer has been scratched from his scheduled start Friday in a minor league game due to “stiffness and soreness” in his left leg.

Rockies manager Jim Tracy called the decision to scratch Moyer from the outing a “precautionary measure,” but there is currently no timetable for the 49-year-old southpaw to resume throwing.

Moyer agreed to a minor league contract with the Rockies back in the middle of January and has been attempting to secure a spot in the team’s starting rotation since arriving at spring camp in Arizona. He has surrendered just four hits and one earned run across five innings of Cactus League work thus far, striking out three batters without issuing a single walk.

Moyer sat out the entire 2011 campaign after undergoing Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery.

    I still can’t figure out why he is doing this. I love the guy, but this is just silly.

    Jamie Moyer and FDR used to have one helluva game of soft toss.

    Guess this means a mighty strong thunder storm will roll through tomorrow.

    His huge balls must have given him a charlie horse in his leg. Strap those things up Jamie!

    Unfortunately, this just shows what a tough road he has ahead of him. I wish him all the best though.
