Jamie Moyer, Nearing 49, Recovering from Tommy John, Attempting Comeback

This dude will not go away. I don’t have anything against Jamie Moyer, but if he keeps going, they may have to replace the “Rasputin” saying with “Moyer.”

Ken Rosenthal reported Tuesday that Moyer threw for scouts in the San Diego-area last week and that the reports from the scouts were “excellent.”

Moyer is turning 49 in a few weeks and returning from Tommy John surgery. He last pitched for the Phillies in ’10 and went 9-9 with a 4.84 ERA in 19 starts. I suppose he can be serviceable as a fifth starter for some teams, but he has an extremely low upside for effectiveness.

Just to give you some perspective, the 267 game winner made his Major League debut two years before Steve DelVecchio was born. That is all.
