ATHLETICS’ PITCHER MOYER WAS TAKEN OFF BY POOR PERFORMANCE
Mon, 04 Jun 2012 08:54 AM EDT

Jamie Moyer was chosen for assignment by the Colorado Rockies, the move being made about 6 weeks after he became the oldest starting pitcher to win a game in major league history. Scores

The 49-year-old Moyer expounded in a news conference that he still had hopes of continuing his career some place else but his immediate plan was to return home and attend a son’s high school graduation.

“It’s a tricky tablet to swallow but it is part of the business,” Moyer claimed.

Rockies chief Jim Tracy told Moyer of the team’s decision in a meeting. The Rockies recalled Carlos Torres from Triple-A Colorado Springs to take Moyers’ roster place.

After missing all the 2011 season while recovering from reconstructive elbow surgery, Moyer signed with the Rockies and made the team with impressive spring training. He became the oldest pitcher to win as a starter April 17, when he led the Rockies to a 5-3 win over the San Diego Padres.

“I enjoyed my time here in Denver,” Moyer said, expressing his appreciation both to Rockies GM Dan O’Dowd and Tracy for helping him to resurrect his career after a year off from the game.

“Dan gave me an amazing opportunity in spring training. Jim stuck his neck out for me. He gave me an opportunity and that’s all I am able to ask for, when I came, a possibility,” Moyer added… “Unfortunately I didn’t hold up to my end of the deal. That’s what occurs in the game.”

Moyer had struggled recently. He was 2-5 with a 5.70 ERA in 10 starts. By designating him for assignment the Rockies have 10 days to trade him or release him.

“I just felt like that by sending him out there, we were compromising him and the team,” Tracy declared before last Wednesday night’s game in opposition to the Houston Astros. “It’s tricky, mainly because he’s as professional as any player I’ve ever been around. But we felt like this is something we had to do.”

Moyer picked up his 2nd win of the season a month after his milestone victory, permitting one earned run and 6 hits in 6 1-3 innings in the Rockies’ 6-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on May 16.

But the successes were establishing rare. In his last start at Cincinnati, Moyer was unable to hold a 5-0 lead and took the loss in a 7-5 Rockies’ setback. He went 5 innings and gave up 7 hits and seven runs.

“It is all about putting up results, individually and as a team,” Moyer claimed. “When you don’t do that, obviously executives have to just step back and reevaluate things and their choices are their selections.”

When asked, though, if he believed he may still pitch, Moyer expounded, “I do believe so.”

He added that he thought he could iron out his problems with his ability and consistency.

“When you speak with any pitchers, consistency is the most vital point,” Moyer expounded. “I haven’t had that to this level. But I’m aware that I can find that.”

During the course of his 24-year career, Moyer has gone 269-209 with a 4.25 ERA while playing for 8 big league teams.
