Amaro: Moyer 5th Starter

In an interview with My Fox Philly, Ruben Amaro, Jr. said that the fifth spot in the rotation is Jamie Moyer’s to lose. Moyer told Amaro that he will be ready to pitch by Opening Day.

“Jaime’s come along really well and he adds some depth in our rotation,” Amaro said.

“It’s his spot to lose,” Amaro also said.

This is good. It motivates Moyer to be a better pitcher and it gives Kyle Kendrick a chance to steal it from Moyer, a much better position to be in. Though I feel it should be Kendrick’s spot, I won’t be surprised if he does in fact win it and forces Moyer back into the pen.
