The Jamie Moyer saga isn’t over yet:
#orioles agree to terms with Jamie Moyer. Starting Saturday for Norfolk

The Orioles are currently tied with the Rays for first place in the AL East, though they have slipped a bit, losing seven of their nine games going into Wednesday. And two of their starting pitchers, Tommy Hunter and Jake Arrieta, have ERA's well above 5.
This is a minor-league deal and there’s no guarantee Moyer will pitch anywhere but Norfolk. He last pitched in the minor leagues in 1997, when he made a rehab start at Tacoma while with the Mariners.
It will also be Moyer’s second stint with Baltimore, if he makes it back; he pitched for the Orioles from 1993 through '95.
In 1993, one of his teammates with the O's was Fernando Valenzuela.
