Rockies released C Chad Moeller.
Moeller, 36, asked for his release after he came to the conclusion that he had little shot of making the team. The veteran had three hits in 14 at-bats last season with the Yankees. He hasn't had more than 100 at-bats at the major league level since 2005. Fri, Mar 11, 2011 07:13:00 PM

Yankees purchased the contract of C Chad Moeller from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Many fans would rather see Jesus Montero or Austin Romine, but this is exactly why the Yankees brought Moeller aboard last month. The 35-year-old backstop should be a fine backup for Francisco Cervelli until Jorge Posada is ready to return. He was batting .207/.233/.310 down at Triple-A.

According to the Baltimore Sun, the Orioles have offered backup catcher Chad Moeller a minor league contract.

The O's declined Moeller's $850,000 option for 2010 on Thursday to clear room on the 40-man roster, but made it clear to him that they want him back. He plans to scout the open market before considering Baltimore's offer. "I'm going to look to see what options are available," said Moeller, "and if there is nothing better as far as a guaranteed major league job, I'll probably be back."

The Orioles won't know until Wednesday if Chad Moeller has cleared waivers.

Because the transaction was made before MLB's offices closed on Friday, the O's will have to wait, with bated breath, no doubt, to learn his fate. If he clears, he's expected to land with Triple-A Norfolk.

It's like Beatlemania- no one ever stops to think of the bands that weren't greeted by screaming fans. Moeller is the sacrifical roster move so that the Matt Wieters Era can begin.
