Jamie Moyer’s career has hit another speed bump. The 49-year-old starting pitcher has been cut by the Toronto Blue Jays after making two starts for the team’s Triple-A club.

When Moyer signed a minor league deal with the Blue Jays last month, the team said the ageless left-hander would make two starts for Triple-A Las Vegas. Well, those two starts didn’t go well and Toronto has decided to part ways with him.

Moyer gave up seven runs over six inning in his second start on Tuesday, and the Blue Jays announced his release late on Thursday. That set his record in Las Vegas at 1-1 with an 8.18 ERA.

Moyer has now been cut by three teams this year, after the Baltimore Orioles and Colorado Rockies let him go earlier in the season. In 10 starts with Colorado he had a 2-5 record with a 5.70 ERA and a 1.73 WHIP. He has a career record of 269-209 and a 4.25 ERA.

On April 17, Moyer became the oldest pitcher in major league history to earn a win in a 5-3 victory over the San Diego Padres. He was 49 years, 150 years old that day and broke a record that had been held since Jack Quinn earned a win on September 13, 1932. Quinn was 49 years, 70 days old when he set the record.

On May 16, he became the oldest player in major league history to record an RBI when he singled in two runs in the fourth inning against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Moyer was 49 years, 180 days old on that day and broke the record previously held by Julio Franco who was 155 days younger when he set the record in 2007.

Having watched Moyer pitch a few times this year, he really doesn’t have anything left in the tank. It was pretty sad. I’ve said a few times that maybe in a big-time pitcher’s park he could have some success, but not much. He just no longer has the stuff of a major league pitcher.
