Jamie Moyer Granted Release From Orioles

Jamie Moyer requested and has been granted his release from the Baltimore Orioles, the team announced Saturday. His brief stay with the organization consisted of three starts for Triple-A Norfolk, where he posted a 1.69 ERA (0.68 WHIP) with 16 strikeouts in 16 innings.

Despite the fine numbers, Moyer simply wasn't needed at the big-league level. The team asked the 49-year-old veteran to make at least one more start for Norfolk, Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette confirmed on Friday, but he apparently declined. Once again a free agent, it's likely that Moyer will continue to seek another big-league job.

Moyer opened the season with the Colorado Rockies, posting a 5.70 ERA (1.73 WHIP) in 10 starts before being released earlier this month. He signed with the Orioles on June 6 with the understanding that he'd make three minor-league starts before being re-evaluated.
