Jamie Moyer‘s 2012 debut was less than stellar.
Making his first start since the 2010 season, the 49-year-old left-hander surrendered five hits and four runs (three earned) in five innings Saturday evening against a light-hitting Astros lineup.
The Rockies aren’t expecting the veteran southpaw to be anything more than an innings-eater this year, but it’s not a given that he’ll be able to meet those already-low expectations. Then again, it’s way too early to say anything definitive. How’s that for hard-hitting analysis?
