Jamie Moyer has found a tough time working back to the major leagues after an unsuccessful stint in the Colorado Rockies' rotation to begin the season.

With the Rockies, Moyer was 2-5 with a 5.70 ERA over 10 starts. His WHIP of 1.733 left much to be desired.

Moyer was released, and found himself looking for another chance to get back to the major leagues.

He signed on with the Baltimore Orioles, but was released yet again after just three minor league starts.

Shortly after being released from the Orioles, the 49-year-old found himself a job north of the border. The Toronto Blue Jays signed him to a two-start minor league contract.

Over 11 innings with the Jays' Triple-A affiliate, Moyer allowed 10 runs and failed to impress in the least bit. As a result, Toronto decided to release the left-hander on Thursday.

Moyer has 269 career wins and a 4.25 ERA over 25 major league seasons. He'll likely be looking for another job, but I'm not sure how many teams will want to take a chance on a 49-year-old who has recently performed poorly in two separate minor league stints.

This could very well be the last time we see Moyer with a major league team.
