The Toronto Blue Jays have released veteran left-hander Jamie Moyer, tweets Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com.

The 49-year-old left-hander signed a two-start minor league deal with the club two weeks ago, stipulating that Moyer would either be promoted or released upon the completion of his two outings at Triple-A Las Vegas. Moyer gave up a disappointing ten runs in 11 innings of work in his two starts and now finds himself without a team for the third time this year..

Moyer began the year with high hopes as the Colorado Rockies No. 2 starter, and got off to a promising start, but things quickly went downhill. Carrying a 3.14 ERA into May, the left-hander amassed an 8.64 ERA over his next five starts and was released by the Rockies. Moyer then signed a three-start minor league contract with the Baltimore Orioles but was released shortly thereafter.

The aged lefty may have trouble finding a fourth team to take him and could very well retire. In his 25 years of major league baseball, Moyer has a 4.25 ERA in over 4,000 innings of work.
