Diamondbacks’ Triple-A Squad Batters the Ageless Jamie Moyer

49 year old Jamie Moyer was attempting a comeback with the Colorado Rockies but he might have just hit a major roadblock–the Arizona Diamondbacks Triple-A squad.

The ageless Moyer had been sideline with leg soreness prior to making the start on Monday–a start in which he allowed 4 runs in just 1.1 innings pitched.  Normally a Triple-A score wouldn’t warrant much of a conversation, but when it involves a many trying make a big league roster at 49 years old it causes everyone to take notice.  After a strong start to the season, Moyers struggled Monday marking a serious setback for the lefty who made his major league debut on June 16th, 1986.  Moyer is among a handful of aging players still hanging on for one last gasp of the big leagues.

If Moyer does rebound and finds his way into the Rockies rotation, he still has a long way to go to become the oldest major leaguer ever.  Satchel Paige actually pitched three innings of shutout ball in a game in 1965 when he was 59 years old.
