Scouting Report LHP Jamie Moyer

24-year veteran Jamie Moyer takes the hill versus the Mets tonight on ESPN, and here is what to expect.

He's won 226 games after turning 30 years old, and is on the 2nd year of a two-year, 13 million dollar deal he signed after the 2008 season, where he went 16-7 with a 3.71 ERA.

He relies on great command, as his fastball averages 81 mph; he also throws a cutter at 78 mph, a curveball at 69, and a change-up at 74 mph. He peppers the outside corner and tries to get the umpire to expand the zone.

He had a 4.94 ERA last year, and more of the same should be expected this year. He is 2-2 this year, with a 5.25 ERA, and a 1.42 WHIP. He has gone six innings in each of his four starts this season.
