Jamie Moyer was released three times in his baseball career before he was 30.
So what's another setback at the age of 49?
The Colorado Rockies felt they had to make a move with Moyer in an effort to patch together a leaky rotation. Moyer, however, isn't ready to retire. The Rockies didn't want to simply release him.
So on Wednesday, the Rockies designated Moyer for assignment. That gives them 10 days to dispose of his contract. That gives them plenty of time to put him on waivers and let Moyer know if any other team out there might have an interest.
Asked if he is interested in trying to continue to pitch, Moyer said "I am."
For now, though, Moyer has a few days to kick back.
"I'm going to go home (Wednesday night) and go to a high school graduation on Saturday,'' he said in reference to the coming event for Hunter, his second-oldest son. "His team (Cathedral Catholic High School in San Diego) is in the playoffs so after the graduation we will to go a baseball game.''
