49-year-old Moyer still has the competitive fire

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Jamie Moyer has a few more gray hairs than most of his teammates and he may have lost a step or two. It's hard to tell as his eyes light up when talk turns to baseball and, suddenly, he seems as youthful as 22-year-old Tyler Chatwood, who sits on a nearby locker stool listening to the 49-year-old left-hander.

Moyer last pitched with the Philadelphia Phillies in July 2010. He then had elbow-ligament replacement surgery on his left elbow and many thought his major league career was over.

Moyer, who was in camp Monday, begs to differ. Calling his age a nonfactor, he's looking to resume his career with the Colorado Rockies, one of a few teams that showed interest.
