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.
