Jamie Moyer: Veteran Pitcher Signs Minor League Deal with Orioles
This paved the way for today's news, tweeted out by the Baltimore Sun's Dan Connolly.

Moyer went 2-5 with the Rockies, and in doing so, became the oldest pitcher in major league history to win a game before being released.
Statistically, Moyer posted a 5.70 ERA in 10 starts over 53.2 innings. In those 10 games, he struck out 36, walked 18 and surrendered 11 home runs—stats that suggest he still has a little left in his tank.
Will Moyer pitch in the Majors again?
However, he was getting worse as the season progressed, and his last two starts for the Rockies were terrible. In those two losing efforts combined, he allowed 16 hits and gave up 13 earned runs, including five home runs, in 8.2 innings.
Moyer is apparently undeterred and is going to try and squeeze every last ounce of talent out of his aging body. Though he will have to work his way up from a Triple-A team, the veteran has another chance to earn a spot in a big-league rotation.
The Orioles, who are in first place in the AL East at 31-24, could use a little help in the back end of their pitching staff, which has been struggling as of late.
Now it's up to Moyer to return to form. Though the odds are against him, I'm certainly not going to count out this crafty left-hander.
