Jamie Moyer rumors: Veteran won't rule out return

Otto Greule Jr

Jamie Moyer won't close the door on a potential return.

Stop me if you've heard this before. Veteran (is there an extreme veteran category?) left-hander Jamie Moyer told reporters -- including Geoff Baker of The Seattle Times -- that he hasn't closed the door on returning to pitch professionally.

Moyer threw out the first pitch for the Seattle Mariners' home opener against the Houston Astros yesterday. When asked if he would pitch again in the majors, Moyer responded that he hasn't "closed that door yet." While he isn't sure when he would make a final decision, he hasn't "discounted potentially trying to come back." However, he doesn't "foresee it happening this year."

Moyer started 10 games for the Colorado Rockies last season, posting an ERA of 5.70 over 53 2/3 innings. He also spent time with the Triple-A affiliates of the Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles, allowing 14 runs over 27 innings over five starts combined with the two teams.

Over 25 years in the majors, Moyer owns a career ERA of 4.25.

For the time being, Moyer is enjoying his children, his new gardening activities and his puppy, all things that a 50-year-old should be able to do.
