I’m not going to say that Kevin Millwood is asking for too much money and/or has nothing left in the tank, but when you’re passed up as the “random starter signed late in the spring by a desperate team hoping that they can catch lightning in a bottle” by Kip Wells, you should probably consider filing your retirement papers.
That’s what the Diamondbacks did today, signing Wells to a minor league deal. Wells hasn’t pitched in organized ball since 2009. He pitched for the independent Long Island Ducks last year, where he made five starts. For his career he has a 4.71 ERA for eight different teams across 11 seasons. I suppose he can’t hurt the Diamondbacks, even if he probably can’t be expected to help them either.
