The Orioles were hoping that Jamie Moyer would make one more start in the minors before possibly joining the major league roster, but that won’t happen. The team just announced that Moyer asked for and was granted his release.
Moyer was released by the Rockies earlier this month after posting a miserable 5.70 ERA over 10 starts. The 49-year-old left-hander quickly latched on with the Orioles on a minor league deal and pitched well during his time with with Triple-A Norfolk, posting a 1.69 ERA and 16/0 K/BB ratio in 16 innings across three starts. However, the Orioles weren’t prepared to add him to the major league roster.
It’s not clear if Moyer has any leads with other teams, but if history is any indication, we shouldn’t count him out just yet.
