The Colorado Rockies have signed 35-year old righty swinging catcher Chad Moeller to a minor league deal. He played in 9 games for the Yankees last season and he was 3 of 14 (.214 avg, .695 OPS) with 2 runs scored. Moeller has now played in 501 games in his first 11 years in the majors and he is 315 of 1,392 (.226 avg, .640 OPS) with 146 runs scored, 29 homers, 132 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. Moeller will likely get a shot to compete with Jose Morales this spring for the right to back up Chris Iannetta in 2011.
UPDATE: (3/11/2011) – The Rockies have released Chad Moeller.
