I know you immediately shook your head at the title of this article but hear me out. I am not for or against Moyer suiting up in our Kansas City Blue; the thought just tickles my curiosity enough to dig into it a little more.
Jamie Moyer officially cleared waivers on Monday, leaving the 24 year veteran without a home. He leaves the Rockies with a 5.70 ERA but a somewhat respectable 3.72 ERA at hitter friendly Coors Field. I can think of a few of our pitchers who wouldn’t mind that number next to their home split. If the Royals took a gamble on Moyer and he could keep up similar numbers, he may just provide some depth to a rotation that has been stretched thin.
There are plenty of concerns with Moyer at this point; and his age not only jumps off the page, it skips and does a cartwheel. However, it seems that the organization doesn’t believe it’s time to showcase some of our young talent at the major league level and Moyer has proved he can still pitch.
