UPDATE: The Yankees sign Kevin Millwood

Mar 25, 2011, 9:46 AM EDT

UPDATE: The deal, she is done, and it’s a minor league deal as Heyman reported last night.  I presume this will lead to a lot of chatter, but really, he’s not going to be a factor any time soon. He hasn’t pitched all spring and the season starts in less than a week.  It’s a depth move — potentially a smart one, depending on how he looks after he’s in baseball shape — but for not it’s of little consequence.

Thursday, 11:49 PM: From Jon Heyman of SI.com comes word that the Yankees are close to signing right-hander Kevin Millwood to a minor league contract.

Millwood, 36, had been holding out for a guaranteed big league roster spot, but it never came and spring training is now nearing it’s wrap-up stage.

Heyman says the contract is “incentive-laden,” meaning it is packed with around a million (or two) in performances-based bonuses. Those probably won’t click in, of course, if he’s not on the major league roster. And the Yanks are almost certain to send him to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre initially.

Millwood is durable but he posted a 5.10 ERA in 31 starts last year for Baltimore, netting only four wins (if wins are your thing). We’ll call him insurance in case both Bartolo Colon and Freddy Garcia go down with injuries. That’s not completely out of the realm of possibility.

    This is a sure fire sign that the Yankees are comfortable with Garcia and Colon all right! (LOL!!!) What do you have to say about that, Yankee homers???

      I’m disgusted, this guy is worse than the other two. All I can say is the inmates are running the asylum. Poor George has to be rolling in his grave.

    • purdueman - Mar 25, 2011 at 12:40 PM

      Yankees just gave up on Mitre by trading him to Milwaukee! That leaves old Milwood, old Freddie and old Fartolo at the back end of the Yankees revamped rotation, and headcase Burnett still way too high up in the rotation for any team other than perhaps the Pirates as well!

      I just figured out Cashman and Hank’s master plan though. By picking through the bones of baseball’s aged hanger-on-ers, they won’t have to pay to fly in enough old former Yankees to play in the annual old timers game! They can just pick off their current roster and have the guys play a “double-dip” that day!!! (ROFLMAO!)

    See you in the playoffs in October.

    • spudchukar - Mar 25, 2011 at 11:49 AM

      Where will you be sitting watching your rivals playing?

      • purdueman - Mar 25, 2011 at 1:00 PM

        yankee homes will likely be found in early October crying in their beer, which means that most of them will likely be in bars watching their rivals in the playoffs!

  3. derpdederpdederp - Mar 25, 2011 at 1:00 AM

    yankees fans can talk about their 95 wins last year and claim their offense is gonna keep them in contention all they want. LOOK AT YOUR ROTATION. there is a massive drop-off after CC and you cant win games in the east without pitching. burnett will not rebound, just accept the fact that he is an overpaid choke artist. talk about your bullpen if you want, but its gonna be tough getting them the ball with the lead when your starting 5 looks like it does. hey yankees fans, NO PLAYOFFS FOR YOU!! NEXT!!

    • sabathiawouldbegoodattheeighthtoo - Mar 25, 2011 at 1:10 PM

      It is always trendy in March to count on the Yankees finishing 3rd. What team has fewer question marks? I could rewrite your whole post about any AL East team, but my guess is they will all be pretty good teams.

      massive drop off after Lester…Beckett will not rebound, Lackey/Wakefield are old
      massive drop off after Price…Shields will not rebound…yadda yadda yadda

      • purdueman - Mar 25, 2011 at 1:24 PM

        sabathia… denial is not a river in Africa. Yankee homers can turn a blind eye if they want to the startling growing number of guys on their 25 man roster on the wrong side of 35 and/or a history of major injuries, but that’s the reality of the Yankees projected 25 man opening day roster.

        The point that you’re apparently either ignoring or missing isn’t about counting the Yankees out as being competitive, the point is that the likelihood of the AL Wild Card team coming out of the Central (White Sox, Twins or Tigers), or the West (A’s or Rangers), because Boston’s roster is head and shoulders above that of the Yankees right now and (as you point out yourself), the AL East is baseball’s strongest division where teams will all beat up on each other down the stretch run.

        I laugh about your remarks though about Lackey and Wakefield. Lackey was a real “reach” when the Red Sox signed him; he’s not “old”, he’s just not anywhere’s near a top of the rotation starter. Wakefield isn’t old, he’s not even ancient; he should be classified at this point as being a “baseball fossil”!

        The injection though of young Carl Crawford and young Adrian Gonzalez when added to Boston’s existing strong core of regulars more than offsets any questions about their starting rotation. Can’t say the same about the aging Yankees; buy comparison Jeter’s now little more than mediocre and A-Roid bad hip could flare up at any time. Good luck with that!

        Bottom line Yankee fans? Time to stop living in the past. Hank and Hal are proving to be cheapskates and I think that the Yankees are going down the path of their years in the ’80’s, not their years under King George in the ’90’s.

  4. purdueman - Mar 25, 2011 at 2:13 AM

    How about this, Yankees homers?:

    Does Cashman think that Millwood is going to be better option then Bartolo Colon or Freddie Garcia?

    I do not think Millwood is the way to go, as I previously wrote New York Yankees Rumor: Please Pass On Kevin Millwood with ample amount of reasons why this would be another pointless signing.

    Cashman should be pleased with how things have gone this Spring Training because I certainly was not expecting Colon to pitch so well.

    Of course, instead Cashman panics again and makes the Yankees a nursing home for about to be forced into retirement players.

    Remember Millwood’s agent is Scott Boras who tends to jam the Yankees with his brainwashing crap or god knows what to get them to constantly pick up his scrappy clients.

    Not happy about this one, and I hope to god this is not being done in case Nova struggles a little in April. I would expect Nova to struggle in his first season and learn from the tough situations. Remember, the Yankees need to let these youngsters form in the bigs not jump ship when things get tough.

    I feel very ill about this considering the season starts in seven days.

    • Professor Longnose - Mar 25, 2011 at 8:48 AM

      No question there’s at least one hole in the rotation. One way to try to fill one of them is to find a bunch of over-the-hill guys and take a chance that one will catch lightning in a bottle. You just give a couple starts to each one and punt whoever bombs. Maybe one will get a little lucky and half a good half season.

      The Yankees are interested in Millwood because at this point he’ll accept a minor league deal. Garcia won’t, and he’ll walk as soon as the Yankees don’t start the season with him in the rotation. So they’ll go with Colon. Maybe he’ll have a decent April and May, and then collapse and be replaced.

      If Burnett and Nova can’t hack it and they’re forced to have Colon, Millwood,and some other similar guy in the rotation at the same time, they’re finished.

      • uyf1950 - Mar 25, 2011 at 9:10 AM

        The Yankees may or may not be interested in Millwood. If they are it’s as insurance and just like insurance everyone has it and hopes to god they don’t need it.
        If I were you I wouldn’t be bet against the Yankees (Girardi) choosing Garcia as the #5 and Colon as the long relief guy. Leaving Mitre the odd man out.
        If this deal goes through Cashman is being prudent having another arm in waiting until a trade deal can be struck.

  5. cogitobaseballergosum - Mar 25, 2011 at 4:16 AM

    No need to panic yet, this IS Jon Heyman reporting, so there’s every chance it’s either a Boras-planted story or a wild guess. Even if it’s true I wouldn’t have a big problem with it. Let him get/stay in shape at SWB and use him as an emergency fall-back if the injury bug hits. Remenber 2005? Who would have guessed Aaron Small, Shawn Chacon, and a then-unknown Chien-Ming Wang would go a combined 25 – 8? You never know what old retread or untried rookie might come to your rescue. The more options available the better.

    That being said, if I’m Colon, I’d be a bit unhappy if I don’t make the team. What was the point of giving him a tryout if he pitches as well as he has and stays healthy, then gets cut because of fears he’ll break down? What has he shown in ST that makes him a less-viable option than when they signed him? What were they looking for if not injury-free quality pitching?

  6. uyf1950 - Mar 25, 2011 at 5:44 AM

    I don’t understand why everyone is getting their panties in a twist. Who cares, even if the piece is true it’s a meaningless signing to a minor league deal at the end of spring training.

    To those Red Sox fans here that know so much about how poor the Yankee rotation is going to be and how after CC they have no one. If I were you I would be far more concerned about the Red Sox pitching not only the starting rotation but the relief core as well. Did any of you notice how well or should I say how poorly Buchholz pitched yesterday. In fact have you noticed how poorly all of your starting pitchers have pitched this spring especially in the last 2 weeks. Now I’m sure someone will respond/reply with it’s only spring training and those numbers don’t mean anything or that’s not the way we judge pitchers now. You may be right, but what if you’re wrong and they are an indication of what’s in store for the Sox pitchers.
    Just to remind everyone of just how well the Sox rotation has pitched this spring:
    Lester’s ERA 3.30
    Lackey’s ERA 3.43
    Buchholz’s ERA 3.71
    Beckett’s ERA 5.02
    Dice K’s ERA 6.05
    Then their is the Sox 2 prized winter signings. Crawford so far this spring .205 BA with 1 extra base hit and Gonzalez .143 BA with no extra base hits. I know the sampling is small and again that this is spring training but still, don’t you think you have more things to concern yourselves with then the Yankees insignificant signing of Millwood (if it’s true) to a minor league deal.
    All I’m saying is let’s not make a mountain out of this molehill (aka the possible Millwood minor league signing). After all many of us were up in arms when Cashman signed Colon to a minor league deal and that’s turned out pretty good so far…and who would have expected Chavez a non roster invitee to play as good this spring as he has. So before anyone starts to go crazy let’s wait and see what happens.

    • phukyouk - Mar 25, 2011 at 9:13 AM

      I dont get why all you anti Yanks fans are up in arms. who he fu*k cares at this point. less than a week till opening day and we need a combined TWELVE starts out of Colon, Garcia,Mitre and Mr X. who cares. im with my buddy above and would be more concerned about the Sox rotation than the Yanks right now.

    • Ari Collins - Mar 25, 2011 at 10:52 AM

      A) Spring stats really really don’t matter, it’s been proven time and time again that doing well or poorly in ST has absolutely zero correlation to doing well or poorly in the regular season. Gonzalez has 14 ABs. Last year, in 54 ST ABs, he had 1 XBH. He went on to hit 31 HRs in the worst hitter’s park in the majors.

      B) But if those were the ERAs, then sign me the !_@# up for those front three, thanks. I’m sure Boston could figure out what to do about #4/#5.

      C) Agreed in general that signing Millwood is a solid depth move. No reason to celebrate a ton, but no reason to criticize either.

  7. yankeesfanlen - Mar 25, 2011 at 7:19 AM

    Minor AAAAARRRRGGGGGHHHHH!

  8. kcq101 - Mar 25, 2011 at 8:32 AM

    4.27.2003 – Phillies vs. Giants = No-no (See, also Terry Mulholland, 8.15.90)

    He was arguably the ‘Joe Blanton’ of the Braves in the late ’90s.

    Good for Kevin.

  9. BC - Mar 25, 2011 at 9:50 AM

    Good move. Because wins don’t matter.
    Seriously, let the guy pitch in AAA for a bit, see if he has anything, if not, cut bait for little risk. Why the heck not.

  10. garryfish - Mar 25, 2011 at 10:11 AM

    Good signing, take a chance, nothing to lose, it’s only money and the Yanks have a lot of it. You never know, it may turn out to be a great signing. At least it’s not Oliver Perez

  11. trevorb06 - Mar 25, 2011 at 10:15 AM

    The Yankees are signing a bunch of guys they wish they signed 5-10 years ago. About time they got the Millwood ball rolling, 10 years too late.

    • uyf1950 - Mar 25, 2011 at 10:27 AM

      Of course you’re right. But then again they could have been like Philly, Cleveland, Texas and Baltimore who since 2003 have paid a combined $81MM for his services (with only 1 good year during that time). I’d say a few hundred thousand dollars plus incentives if the deal goes through is worth it as insurance. But that’s just my opinion.

  12. Professor Longnose - Mar 25, 2011 at 11:10 AM

    I wouldn’t mind them getting rid of Mitre, but they’ve had opportunities to dump him before, and haven’t. Girardi seems to be stuck on him.

    • uyf1950 - Mar 25, 2011 at 12:07 PM

      From your mouth to god’s ear.

      • Professor Longnose - Mar 25, 2011 at 4:12 PM

        God heard! He’s gone!

  13. sabathiawouldbegoodattheeighthtoo - Mar 25, 2011 at 1:17 PM

    They could sign my grandmother to a minor league deal and I wouldn’t really criticize the move. This is a zero-risk insurance policy that won’t even cost them a roster spot or MLB minimum. Millwood has a better health track record than the other guys.

    Looks like they will break camp with Nova, Garcia and Colon, with one of them in the ‘pen. If that doesn’t work, Millwood will be getting in shape in Scranton. If THAT doesn’t work there will probably be other options around by then. We are talking about a 5th starter, not the team’s ace. How many 5th starters are appreciably better than the Yankees options?

      • purdueman - Mar 25, 2011 at 6:20 PM

        uyf…. I figured I’d fire you up to do the research on the Steinbrenner clan, but since I’m not related or wasn’t part of King George’s will, I really don’t care one way or the other.

        My whole point was that all of the reports about Hank and Hal being jealous and apparently beside themselves over Jeter’s new mansion are very, very telling.

    • purdueman - Mar 25, 2011 at 3:10 PM

      sabathia… reality check here, dude! Although it may not be apparent to most yankee fans yet, Hank and Hal aren’t George; they are mostly interested in lining their own pockets with the profits, as Georgie Boy’s huge estate got hit with heavy taxes and had to then be divided between multiple surviving family members.

      Yankee fan is just seeing the tip of the iceberg when it comes to new Yankee penny pinching reminiscent of the ’80’s (before King George took a personal interest in the team). The only reason that Hank and Hal signed off on over paying Jeter as much as they did this offseason was because of enormous public pressure… it sure wasn’t because they believed he was worth the contract that was offered.

      The Yankees sudden interest in retaining their minor league prospects is another tell tale sign. Sure, it could be argued that this is just being prudent, but that’s not how King George ran the ship! King George figured that there would always be a more proven veteran free agent that could simply be picked up by throwing money around if the need arose; that ain’t Hank and Hal’s MO!

      Lots of teams have more reliable starters than any of the Yankees current suspects. No, none of them are marque names of course, but none of them also have sucked up big salaries living off the disabled list for the past several years either, nor are most 5th starters across both leagues on the wrong side of 35 either.

      Bottom line? Yankees will be better than a .500 team this year, and my prediction is that they will find a way to win 87-88 games, but in the absence of sacrificing one of their top pitching prospects for another proven veteran starter, it’s home the first weekend in October for the Bronx Bombers.

      • uyf1950 - Mar 25, 2011 at 4:04 PM

        purdueman – Just for your information you do realize that with the Boss dying in 2010 the Steinbrenner family did NOT have to pay any inheritance tax. As that was the one year the Federal Government let the tax expire. Which according to published reports at the time saved the Steinbrenner family about $500MM. Everytime you post something here about the Yankees you show your ignorance or at the very least lack of knowledge.

      • purdueman - Mar 25, 2011 at 4:17 PM

        uyf… so you’re now not only a yankee homer, but an IRS tax expert too, huh? (LOL! … there goes your credibility, dude!). What I’ve read obviously is different than what you’ve read, so before you run your pie hole, how about posting a web link to back up your “yankee knowledge” if your’e going to slam someone in the process? (I won’t hold my breathe though waiting for you to do so).

        There have been SEVERAL stories in the media throughout spring training about Hank and Hal’s laments over Derrek Jeter’s construction of his mansion in Florida. They are both clearly green with envy and have remarked how Jeter is wealthier than either of them. Ya, they either must be billionaires like their old man, or Jeter has more billions than each of them do individually now, huh? The answer can only be one or the other you know.

        I find it funny how Yankee fan can’t handle any comments critical of their team, and all of the denials over the Yankees aging roster and willingness now to spend money like the old man used to. Both however, are just reality, no matter how you may try to spin it!

      • Professor Longnose - Mar 25, 2011 at 4:17 PM

        That’s the first time in a long time I’ve heard the Yankees accused of penny pinching. Actually, I think it’s the first time ever.

        If the Yankees don’t make the playoffs for one year because they don’t want to sacrifice prospects for crap, I can live with it. And there’s still a pretty decent chance they’ll be in the thick of things.

      • purdueman - Mar 25, 2011 at 4:21 PM

        uyf… riddle me this… if Hank and Hal are willing to spend like their old man did during the ’90’s, then why is it that they won’t deal for either veteran proven starters Edwin Jackson, Mark Buerhle or Joe Blanton (all of which make more than $8M/year)?

        Please don’t give us the tired old argument that the Yankees upcoming kids in the minors are “untouchables”, because that never stopped Georgie from trying everything to build winning teams and as the Angels have learned the hard way, prospects are just that… prospects.

        To prove my point Yankee fan, whatever became of former Yankee top prospect, untouchable Brian Taylor who was taken with the first pick of the baseball draft and at that time received the biggest bonus ever in the history of baseball?

  14. purdueman - Mar 25, 2011 at 4:34 PM

    professor longnose… Yes, it’s the first time perhaps that you’ve read a post accusing the Yankees of “penny pinching” in a long, long time, but we’re talking here about the Hank and Hal run Yankees, not the King George run Yankees now.

    Are you honestly going to try and tell me that signing old retread starters Milwood, Garcia and Colon ISN’T penny pinching when it’s well known that proven veterans Joe Blanton, Edwin Jackson and possibly Mark Buerhle are available for the right package of prospects?

    Ok, so all of a sudden the Yankees don’t want to part with any of their top rated prospects (another big change in how Hank and Hal are conducting business differently then their old man), but there were other quality veteran starters available in free agency this past year (Garland, Lilly, Pavano and to a lesser extent Penny), as well as another free agent reclamation project with FAR more upside than any of the retreads the Yankees signed all on the cheap this offseason (Chris Young, who’s had a sparkling pain free spring thusfar for the cross town Mets).

    What’s next Yankee fans? Is Cashman just biding his time until the Cubs release Carlos Silva so as to sign him too on the cheap??? One things for sure… and that’s that the current Yankees management isn’t operating the same way as the current Phillies or Red Sox management!

  15. purdueman - Mar 25, 2011 at 4:37 PM

    Watch for this! If the Yankees have a bad year, look for CC Sabathia to use the opt out clause in his contract at the end of this season and “pull a Cliff Lee”, willing to take less money to go to a younger contending team. Remember, you read that here first yankee homers!

    • yankeesfanlen - Mar 25, 2011 at 5:26 PM

      Dear Mr. Purdueman-

      For someone who seemingly HATES The New York Yankees, and does not have much nice to say about many of the “homers” who frequent this establishment, you certainly take an inordinate account of your valuable time to express your all-knowing opinions.
      From me personally, if I had to post this incessantly about the Boston Red Sox, or any other more worthy team than my own I would be too exhausted to concentrate on my own team of interest. So I don’t.

      Sincerely,
      Len
      University of Phoenix ’92, magna cum laude (I have the postage to prove it).

  16. purdueman - Mar 25, 2011 at 6:26 PM

    I don’t hate the Yankees at all; what I hate is what teams like the Yankees do to totally destroy so many small market teams chances of remaining competitive for more than just a year or two before they are then forced to go back into rebuilding all over again. As a true baseball fan, I just think that it sucks that go baseball towns that are charter members of their leagues like the Pirates can’t afford to retain their stars over time.

    Incessant posting? No; entertaining posting. I find it very entertaining watching in particular how Yankee homers so quickly get their panties all tied up in knots over virtually any criticism of them!

    If you did get a degree from the University of Phoenix, good for you! Trust me though, it’s NOTHING like the pressure of attending a big four year university on campus. Apples and oranges. My wife is an HR recruiter for a Fortune 50 company and trust me, there’s a difference between the two as far as hiring managers in major corporations are concerned.

  17. purdueman - Mar 25, 2011 at 6:50 PM

    Hank and Cashman will be disappointed to hear this breaking news, but the Cubs told veteran starting pitching candidate Brandon Pooper that he didn’t make the team. The disappointment I’m sure to the Yankees is that the Pooper chose to announce his retirement, rather than respond to the Yankees rumored interest in him!

    The good news is that even though the Pooper retired and ex-Cub Mitre was dumped to Milwaukee earlier today, the Yankees still potentially have the “dreaded ex-Cub factor/curse” in play with Girardi, Rothschild and Prior still in the picture (the curse states that the team have three or more ex-Cub losers in uniform).

    Old starting pitchers way past their prime never die; they just sign on with the Yankees!

    uyf… You’re a regular Bill O’Reilly the way you like to spin doctor things to your point of view! Unlike you, honestly I don’t care what the filthy rich do with their money (unless of course it were to come my way!), when they finally kick the bucket, nor do I care about goofs like Hank and Hal who’s only lifetime achievements are being members of the lucky sperm club and being born with solid platinum spoons in their mouthes either.

    My ENTIRE point was that ESPN radio had SEVERAL reports of Hank and Hal reportedly bristling over the gaudy mansion Derrek Jeter is building in Tampa. You see, Hank and Hal live in Tampa and drive by Jeter’s property often, prompting Hank to reportedly say: “He has more money than I do”. If that’s not jealousy I don’t know what is, but it is a sign that Hank and Hal aren’t going to foolishly toss around tens of millions the way that their old man did (hence the “on the cheap” signings of over the hill starting pitching this offseason).

    How did King George’s signings of Damsco Marte, Carl Pavano, Steve Karsay, Jason Giambi’s last Yankee contract, Nick Johnson, Jared Wright, Kei Igawa and Kyle Farnsworth (just to name a few), work out for you? There’s more money pissed away on this pathetic crew than the entire payrolls of several major league teams year after year after year!

    One last thing, since you’re so obsessed with inheritances from dead rich people, here’s an eye popping story that just broke on the west coast that likely will keep you googling for hours (as Liz has four surviving children by three prior marriages):
