There won't be any reports of Jamie Moyer pitching in a minor-league game on Friday afternoon since he experienced stiffness in his left leg, reports the Denver Post's Troy Renck. While Renck's initial report had Moyer out indefinitely, further reports indicate it might just be a few days:
Jamie Moyer's leg issues don't appear serious enough to derail comeback. If only pushed back 3 or 4 days will still have time to make roster— Troy Renck, Rockies (@TroyRenck) March 16, 2012
Moyer, 49 years old, signed a minor-league deal with the team earlier in the year and was one of several candidates to be the fifth starter this season. While originally an afterthought in that competition, the left-handed pitcher has posted a 1.80 ERA in five innings pitched this spring training, walking zero and striking out three.
