Orioles' Decision On Jamie Moyer Due Soon

Jamie Moyer might be getting close to a return to the major leagues, with the Baltimore Orioles.

Roch Kubatko:

Jamie Moyer is scheduled to make his third start tonight for Triple-A Norfolk, and executive vice president Dan Duquette is nearing a decision on the 49-year-old southpaw, according to the timetable he set after signing Moyer to a minor league contract.

Duquette said the Orioles would evaluate Moyer for two or three starts. Moyer has allowed two earned runs (three total) and eight hits in 12 innings, with no walks and 12 strikeouts. If he shuts down Buffalo tonight, that might be good enough to get him back in the majors after the Rockies released him.

That’s pretty good performance at Triple-A, notably the zero walks. Kubatko says the Orioles have a couple of rotation starters — Tommy Hunter and Jake Arrieta — who have been struggling, and who both have minor-league options remaining.

Jamie Moyer’s had a remarkable career; now, his latest comeback might put him in the midst of a pennant race.
