Forget the gold, the Rockies are going for the old. As I first wrote Monday, the team has signed 49-year-old pitcher Jamie Moyer to a minor-league deal, pending a physical. Moyer, who last pitched in 2010 with the Phillies, will compete for a rotation spot and help tutor the Rockies’ battery of young pitchers. Moyer missed all of last season after undergoing elbow ligament transplant surgery. He pitched in the winter league and auditioned for scouts, impressing the Rockies enough to bring him to Scottsdale on a non-guaranteed deal. More on DenverPost.com Jamie Moyer
