Rockies Replacing Jamie Moyer With Josh Outman

Jamie Moyer was designated for assignment by the Colorado Rockies, partly because he was getting hit hard, and partly because he didn't have a long-term future on a team that had set fire to the short-tem. And the Rockies have found their replacement for Moyer in Josh Outman, who will start on Friday. From MLB.com:

"The way it was put to me was that this isn't going to be a spot-start," Outman said. "It's going to be the first step in stretching me out to be a starter for the long haul."

Outman hasn't pitched more than an inning in relief this season, so his start on Friday will likely be a short one. But the Rockies seem committed to the experiment, and he should get more than one start.

Outman was acquired from the Athletics in the Seth Smith trade, and he has a career 3.92 ERA (108 ERA+) in 156 career innings. He posted a 1.29 ERA in seven minor-league appearances this year.
