MLB Hot Stove 2012: Colorado Rockies Offer Contract To Pitcher Jamie Moyer, According To Report

Word emerged earlier on Monday that the Colorado Rockies were after a veteran starting pitcher, and reports now indicate that the pitcher in question is Jamie Moyer, who pitched most recently for the Philadelphia Phillies. He did not play in the majors in 2011.

Multiple major league sources confirmed that the Rockies are trying to finish up a minor-league deal with the 49-year-old Moyer, who last pitched with the Phillies.

In 24 major league seasons, Moyer has a 267-204 record and a 4.24 ERA. In his last season with the Phillies, he was a decent back-of-the-rotation starter and posted a 4.84 ERA.
