His mind is consumed with useless sports knowledge, pro wrestler promos, and movie quotes, but he struggles to remember where he put his phone. Luke's favorite sports memories include being one of the thousands of kids who waited to get Cal Ripken's autograph after Orioles games in the summer of 1995, attending the Super Bowl XXXV victory parade with his father in the pouring rain, and watching the Terps advance to the Final Four at the Carrier Dome in 2002.

After deciding he longer wanted to wait for the Orioles to promote him, veteran left-hander Jamie Moyer signed a minor-league deal with the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday.

The 49-year-old will report to Triple-A Las Vegas and presumably join the starting rotation. He has not received any assurances of a call-up, but the Blue Jays’ recent rash of injuries in their starting rotation increases the likelihood of Moyer receiving another chance in the big leagues. Toronto has lost starters Brandon Morrow, Kyle Drabek and Drew Hutchison to the disabled list in recent weeks and Henderson Alvarez departed from Monday’s game with elbow soreness.

Moyer made three starts for Triple-A Norfolk, allowing three runs in 16 innings while striking out 16 and walking none. He requested and was granted his release on Saturday after the Orioles did not select his contract and asked him to make at least one more start for the Tides.

Making 10 starts for the Colorado Rockies earlier this season, Moyer went 2-5 with a 5.70 ERA before being released in early June.
