As expected, Jamie Moyer cleared waivers after being designated for assignment last week and the Rockies released the 49-year-old left-hander.
Moyer got off to a nice start for Colorado after missing all of last season following Tommy John surgery, but struggled overall with a 5.70 ERA, .328 opponents’ batting average, and 11 homers allowed in 54 innings.
This is probably the end of the line for Moyer, although if he’s still interested in pitching it wouldn’t be shocking to see a team offer up a minor-league contract just to have him around as depth. If he’s indeed finished, Moyer ends his remarkable 25-season career with 269 wins and a 4.25 ERA in 4,074 innings, 2,608 of which came after age 35.
