Thoughts on Millwood
Veteran right-hander Kevin Millwood will have a shot at making the Mariners' rotation this spring, according to Seattle general manager Jack Zduriencik.
When Millwood was with the Indians he won the American League ERA title in 2005 at 2.86. Wedge was his boss then. We'll see if he can re-create some magic.
We'll see. I think the rotation is pretty crowded. But the guy does have a little pedigree doesn't he?
Millwood's deal comes with an invitation to spring training, and a $1 million salary if he makes the team, according to The Associated Press.
He can earn an additional $750,000 in performance bonuses.
Millwood, 37, has won 163 games in the majors, but just eight the past two years.
In 9 starts with the Rockies last year (after pitching in the minors for the Yankees and Red Sox), Millwood was 4-3 with a 3.98 earned-run average.
I actually really like the guy and think his veteran leadership will go a long way with this team. I can't wait to see where he lands, I hope he cracks the rotation and gets the 5th spot.
