Jamie Moyer Joining Baseball Tonight As Analyst During Rehab

Earlier Wednesday morning, we got word of a new development taking place in the ESPN studios. From their Media Zone blog:

Former Major League Baseball pitcher Jamie Moyer, a 24-year Major League veteran, has joined ESPN as a Baseball Tonight analyst.  Moyer will debut tomorrow, Thursday, March 31, contributing to ESPN’s Opening Day coverage (including the midnight ET episode of Baseball Tonight). He will provide analysis on Baseball Tonight throughout the season.

Every post written about Jamie Moyer ends up talking about how old Jamie Moyer is, and this post is no different.

Some Baseball Tonight analysts and their ages:

Jamie Moyer: 48
Aaron Boone: 38
Orestes Destrade: 48
Nomar Garciaparra: 37
Doug Glanville: 40
Orel Hershiser: 52
John Kruk: 50
Barry Larkin: 46
Eduardo Perez: 41
Curt Schilling: 44
Chris Singleton: 38
Fernando Vina: 41
Eric Young: 43

Among MLB players with a job at the desk, Moyer's one of the oldest. And he's also the only one who's still playing, as Moyer is rehabbing from offseason elbow surgery and intends to return in 2012. Sure, he may not make it, but he isn't particularly close to filing his retirement papers, so this is just another one of those trivia question answers to file away for when Moyer finally hangs them up and we all begin to fully appreciate how incredible everything about him really is.
