Jamie Moyer will get his third opportunity in a Rockies uniform to become the oldest pitcher in Major League history to win a game. His first two starts in Colorado have not been incredibly impressive, as the Rockies have lost to the Astros and Giants in both starts. And yet:
- Jamie Moyer's 2012 ERA (4.22) is lower than his career 688-game, 22-year careeer (4.24).
- Jamie Moyer leads the Rockies rotation in ERA, BB/9, K/BB and innings pitched per start.
|2012 - Jamie Moyer||0-2||2||2||0||0||0||0||10.2||13||8||5||2||2||5||4.22||1.41|

At least Bass isn't left-handed.

Chatwood Down, Escalona Up
With the bullpen getting taxed by a rotation ranked last in MLB in innings per start, the Rockies were forced to shuffle the deck. Tyler Chatwood, who has a 5.63 in 8.0 IP of relief with 7 strikeouts and 1 walk, will be going to AAA to be groomed as a starter. In his place, Edgmer Escalona will be in uniform today. He has a 1.71 ERA in 31.2 major league innings, had a 3.18 ERA in AAA Colorado Springs last season and has thrown five shutout innings in AAA this season.
Lineups after the jump. Yes, Cargo is back.
