Jamie Moyer has been offered a minor league contract by the Colorado Rockies, a source confirmed to the Daily News.

The source said Moyer could be awaiting an offer from another team as well.

Moyer, who turned 49 in November, spent the last 4 1/2 of his 24 major league seasons with the Phillies. Moyer, 267-204 lifetime with a 4.24 ERA, was 56-40 for the Phillies, including 16-7 when they won the World Series in 2008.

Moyer was 9-9 with a 4.84 ERA in 2010 but had elbow ligament surgery and missed last season. Since rehabbing, he has been working out in hopes of pitching again.

The Denver Post, which first reported the story, indicated that would be brought in to compete for a rotation spot and help tutor the young pitchers on the Colorado staff.

Also, the Rockies traded outfielder Seth Smith to Oakland for righthander Guillermo Moscoso and lefthander Josh Outman, a former Phillies prospect who was sent to the Athletics in the Joe Blanton trade.
