According to Shannon Drayer of ESPN, and confirmed by Mike Wilner, 49 year old Jamie Moyer has signed a AAA deal with the Jays. This move is crazy for so many reasons.I don't mind it, especially because it is a minor league deal that costs nothing, and somebody needs to replace the AAA playing in Toronto. And, if he is needed, Moyer can pitch better than Jesse Chavez, maybe even Scott Richmond(who was called up tonight) and Aaron Laffey. Moyer was 2-5 with a 5.70 ERA in 10 starts with the Rockies earlier this season. He was released by the Rockies last month, signed by the Orioles, pitched to a 1-1 record with a 1.69 ERA in AAA with Norfolk, and was granted his release last week.
It has been announced that Moyer will start on Thursday for the 51's.
