For the third time this season, Jamie Moyer has found a team that is willing to take a chance on his 49-year-old arm.

According to Shannon Drayer of MyNorthwest.com, Moyer is going to sign with the Toronto Blue Jays and will begin his journey back to the big leagues in the team's Triple-A rotation:

Moyer has received far more publicity and chances this season than his talent should warrant. He was given a spot in Colorado's rotation coming out of spring training, mainly because the Rockies don't have enough arms to fill out a starting five, as we are seeing right now.

After posting an ERA of 5.70 and allowing 75 hits in 53.2 innings with Colorado, he was released at the end of May.

Never one to give up, Moyer signed with the Baltimore Orioles and pitched in their Triple-A rotation. Since the team had no plans to bring him up to the big leagues, Moyer asked for and was granted his release over the weekend.

The Blue Jays, who have had some pitching woes of their own, apparently saw enough in Moyer to at least give him a chance. Until a contract is signed, we won't know exactly what the plan is for him.

Considering Moyer wanted out of Baltimore because there wasn't a spot for him in the rotation, the Blue Jays must have told him something he liked.

Putting Moyer in the American League East is a recipe for disaster. Even more, putting Moyer in the hitter-friendly confines of the Pacific Coast League is not something that is going to bring success for him or the team.

Good for Moyer. He keeps showing teams that he doesn't have much left, yet they keep giving him chances.
