Moyers moves on to Toronto

Jamie Moyer has signed a Minor League deal with Toronto, and he is expected to report to their Triple-A club in Las Vegas.

Moyer opted out of his deal with the Orioles over the weekend after a three-start audition with their Triple-A affiliate in Norfolk. He went 1-1 with a 1.69 ERA over 16 innings before requesting his release on Saturday. The 49-year-old lefty made the Colorado Rockies Opening Day roster but was released by the club in May before latching on with the Orioles. This will be Moyer’s third organization this season.

Also, in case you missed it, the Orioles granted veteran Miguel Tejada his release yesterday. More on that here.

I have a sneaking feeling that Moyer is going to come back to haunt the Orioles some time later this season. I am glad he found a home but I wish it wouldn’t have been with another AL East team. I still don’t understand why he couldn’t have been called up to replace Tommy Hunter. There are many that say Hunter is pitching better but he still hasn’t shown me enough to be considered a starter on a team that is in contention for the first time in so many years. I know-I know, we would have to make a place for him on the 40 man roster but in my opinion it would have been worth the risk. Good luck Jamie – except if and when you face the Orioles.
