Colorado Rockies Release Jamie Moyer

There’s been no official news release from the Colorado Rockies, but according to CBS Sports’ transaction page, the inevitable has happened, summed up in one simple line of digital type:

Colorado Rockies | Jamie Moyer | Released

In fact, according to the page, it happened Sunday, quietly, on a weekend when no one was watching. This wasn’t unexpected after Moyer was designated for assignment last Wednesday; he’s obviously cleared waivers and the Rockies had no interest from other teams in trading for him.

Moyer still wants to pitch, and given the dearth of starting-pitching options for many teams that have injury issues, it seems quite likely that Moyer will get some offers, or at least inquiries. He pitched pretty well at Coors Field this season; if a pitcher can do that, it would seem that a team with a big ballpark (since Moyer has allowed 11 home runs this season) might find him helpful.

We await developments. So does Moyer. He’d surely like to go out of baseball on his terms, not via “Released.”
