Long time major leaguer, Jaime Moyer, has signed a minor league contract with the Baltimore Orioles. If he makes the major league roster it would be the second time in his long career (1993-1995).
While Jamie’s comeback with the Rockies was short lived his career MLBvalue in 19 seasons stands at $93,282,000 and is very impressive.
In Baltimore terms, it doesn’t compare with - lets say - Jim Palmer, who had a career MLBvalue of $152,234,000 in only 19 seasons but let us hope Jamie’s final season (whenever that is) will be better than the Hall-of-famer Palmer had.
In 1984, Jim Palmer left the sport with a negative MLBvalue in pitching of (-$257,000). His 18 earned runs and 17 walks, in only 17.67 innings - was a big factor. Jamie, by the way, was in the Cubs minor league system at that time.
