Jamie Moyer, the 49-year-old left-handed pitcher, has signed a minor league deal with the Colorado Rockies, which includes an invitation to join the team for spring training. The deal is pending a physical, which Moyer will have to pass sometime in the future.

The physical is due in part to a surgery that Moyer underwent last season. The Tommy John surgery on his throwing elbow made him miss out on the entirety of last season.

Moyer is not a stranger to the game. He has played 24 major league seasons, starting in 1986 with the Chicago Cubs. He played from 1996 to 2006 with the Seattle Mariners, but played most recently with the Philadelphia Phillies. He went 9-9 in the season, with a 4.84 ERA in 2010.

In his career he has amassed a record of 267-204, with his career ERA at 4.24.
