Colorado Rockies Sign Jamie Moyer To Minor League Contract

The Colorado Rockies and left-handed pitcher Jamie Moyer have agreed to a minor league contract, according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports. Moyer last pitched in the majors at age 47, and he's currently 49 years old as he signs on to go for his 25th season in the majors.

Moyer missed the entire 2011 season while rehabbing from Tommy John surgery that he had in December of 2010, but he's reportedly back in shape and expects to contribute in 2012. Moyer made 19 starts for the Philadelphia Phillies during the 2010 season, posting a 4.84 ERA over 111.2 innings. He still displayed his trademark elite command, walking just 1.6 batters per 9 innings.

Considering that the Rockies have a rotation in flux, this deal gives them another option. Among the names in the mix for Colorado are Jhoulys Chacin, Jason Hammel, Alex White, Drew Pomeranz, Guillermo Moscoso, Tyler Chatwood, Juan Nicasio, Josh Outman, Edwar Cabrera and Jorge De La Rosa, who returns from Tommy John surgery this year.
