2012 MLB Hot Stove: Colorado Rockies Have No Room For Kevin Millwood

The Colorado Rockies projected 2012 rotation is still in flux thanks to injuries to Jorge De La Rosa and Juan Nicasio, but it doesn't appear as if the team is going to resign Kevin Millwood. Troy E. Renck of the Denver Post reports that the Rockies don't have much room left in the budget for Millwood after the acquisitions of Kevin Slowey and Michael Cuddyer, the latter of which was signed to a three-year, $31.5 million contract this off season.

Earlier this winter, the Rockies offered Millwood a contract worth $1 million with incentives that could stretch it to double that, but Millwood rejected that offer, instead asking for somewhere in the range of $3 million guaranteed. Millwood started nine games towards the end of the season for Colorado last year, going 4-3 with a 3.98 ERA.
