Jamie Moyer Signs With Blue Jays

The ongoing 2012 road show of veteran pitcher Jamie Moyer is now heading north of the border, as the 49-year-old lefthander signed a minor-league deal with the Toronto Blue Jays:

So, before he pitches for the Jays in Canada, he’ll head to the bright lights of Vegas. This sounds like a movie script, or at least the basis for a Jack Kerouac-style novel.

The Blue Jays could use the pitching help, as they had several starting pitchers go down with injuries within a very short period of time. If Moyer shows up well in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League, the Blue Jays could very well give him another major-league chance.

Moyer threw well in three starts for Triple-A Norfolk in the Orioles’ organization, posting a 1.69 ERA and issuing just one walk in 16 innings. If he throws that well in Vegas… what happens in Vegas probably won’t stay in Vegas.
