Could this be the end for Jamie Moyer in the major leagues? His time with the Colorado Rockies appears to be at an end.

Moyer made his only All-Star team with the Mariners in 2003, wher he pitched 215 innings, went 21-7, posted a 3.27 ERA, while striking out 129. Keep in mind this happened when Moyer had just turned 40 years old, and he still had nine years left to play in the Major Leagues, including helping the Phillies win a World Series in 2008.
Moyer leads all Mariners pitchers in starts with 323 starts, the most innings pitched with that team, and the most wins with 145, and also posted a career 3.97 ERA with the team. His variety of pitches offset the loss of speed, and he has become one to marvel the older he's gotten. It could be at the end.
