Or maybe it won’t. While Moyer was getting hit hard — a 5.70 ERA — half of his 10 starts could be characterized as at least “decent”, and several big-name pitchers, including Ubaldo Jimenez and Tim Lincecum, currently have higher ERAs than Moyer.
So is this the end for Moyer? Not if he can help it:
Asked if he is interested in trying to continue to pitch, Moyer said “I am.”
For now, though, Moyer has a few days to kick back.
“I’m going to go home (Wednesday night) and go to a high school graduation on Saturday," he said in reference to the coming event for Hunter, his second-oldest son. "His team (Cathedral Catholic High School in San Diego) is in the playoffs so after the graduation we will to go a baseball game."
So maybe he can treat this as a bit of an in-season vacation. The 10-day DFA period means that other teams might contact the Rockies with interest. There are teams that have pitching issues at this time. Somehow, I don’t think the final chapter of Jamie Moyer’s MLB career has yet been written.
