BOSTON -- Jamie Moyer may not be finished quite yet.

The Toronto Blue Jays have signed the 49-year-old left-hander to a minor league deal, giving the oldest pitcher to win a game in the big leagues another shot.

The Blue Jays say Moyer will make two starts for Triple-A Las Vegas, then Toronto will decide whether to bring him back to the majors. Manager John Farrell says there are no guarantees, but Moyer is worth at least a look. The Blue Jays have lost three starters to injuries this month.

The agreement is similar to the deal Moyer made with Baltimore earlier this month. Moyer made three starts for the Orioles in the minors and was offered a fourth, but declined and opted to become a free agent.
