JAMIE MOYER has been offered a minor league contract by the Colorado Rockies, a source confirmed to the Daily News.
The source also said Moyer was awaiting an offer from another team.
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 to pitching again.
The Denver Post, which first reported the story, indicated that he would be brought in to compete for a rotation spot and help tutor the young pitchers on the Colorado staff.
In another matter, 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.
The Boston Red Sox have agreed to a minor league deal with former Phillies righthander Vicente Padilla.
The deal includes an invitation to big-league spring training and a decent chance to make the roster, according to CBSSports.com.
Padilla, 34, appeared in only nine games last season with the Dodgers, all as a reliever. He was sidelined for most of the year with neck problems.
Also, the Red Sox have remained in contact with former Phillies righthander Roy Oswalt, but do not have enough money to sign him now, according to Boston radio station WEEI. The Red Sox would need to move another player in order to further consider signing Oswalt.
* Phil Hughes and the New York Yankees agreed to a $3.2 million, 1-year contract, a raise of $500,000 that followed an injury-filled season.
A 25-year-old righthander, Hughes was 5-5 with a 5.79 ERA in 14 starts and three relief appearances last season, down from an 18-8 record the previous year. He was sidelined from April 15 to July 6 because of an inflamed right shoulder, then was bothered by a herniated disk in his back in September.
* Oft-injured relief pitcher Joel Zumaya and the Minnesota Twins have agreed on a 1-year contract.
The 27-year-old righthander was a dominant, hard-throwing setup man for division rival Detroit in 2006, a head-turning rookie capable of throwing 100 mph heat who helped the Tigers advance to the World Series. He hasn't pitched an entire season since then, however, because of a series of arm problems. The latest injury was a broken elbow he suffered at Minnesota in gruesome fashion during a game against the Twins at Target Field in June 2010, and he hasn't pitched in the majors since.
* Outfielder Nyjer Morgan has agreed to a $2.3 million, 1-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers, avoiding arbitration.
Morgan arrived in Milwaukee in a trade with the Washington Nationals last March, becoming the team's primary centerfielder against righthanded pitchers. He played in 119 games, batting .304 with four home runs and 37 RBI. He made $471,500.
