Kevin Millwood Signs With Colorado Rockies, According To Report

The Colorado Rockies are in search of another starter now that Juan Nicasio is out for the season, recovering from his broken neck. Instead of looking at an internal option, the Rockies have signed Kevin Millwood, according to the Denver Post's Troy Renck. The Rockies have had interest in Millwood over the years and they finally fulfilled that on Monday.

Millwood could start for the Rockies on Wednesday, but nothing is for certain yet. How much he has left in his is also another question. Millwood was good in 2009 while with the Texas Rangers (13-10, 3.67 ERA), but then moved to the Orioles in 2010 and racked up a league-leading 16 losses.

He didn't get any major league offers in 2011, signing a minor-league deal with the New York Yankees. He made three starts over the Double-A and Triple-A levels for them before opting out of his contract after April. He joined the Red Sox in May and had made 13 starts (5-1, 4.28 ERA) for their Triple-A team before the team released. He was quite hittable (79 hits in 72-2/3 innings). Even with a thin rotation in Boston, the club, it appears, was not intent on giving him a shot.
