Kevin Millwood rocked at Triple-A, done with Yankees?

It may be time for the Yankees and Kevin Millwood to end their short and uneventful marriage.

According to Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York, the veteran right-hander was shelled for six earned runs over just two innings Thursday evening in what might have been his final start at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Millwood has a clause in his contract with the Yankees that will allow him to opt out on May 1. With no real need for a shaky and aging starter, the Bombers might go ahead and cut ties before then.

Millwood’s agent has probably already begun the process of finding his client a spot within another organization. The 36-year-old turned in a 5.10 ERA over 31 starts last season for the Orioles.

      uyf1950… I agree with you 100% The Yanks got real lucky with Garcia and Colon for as long as they last, but Millwood is a horse of a different color. Let’s see what shakes loose by the trade deadline. Take care my friend.

        well there is a team a little further north but not quite Canada that’s still under 500 that may be able to use him.

        and when i say a little further north i mean it geographically… in standing they are WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY south.

    The guy was done last year. He was like 3-18 for crying out loud. Have a nice retirement, Kevin.

    Dang – I was really looking forward to this guy getting hammered by the Seattle Mariners. Just so long as the Mets don’t pick him up.

    He was a BUM in Baltimore. Looks like he’s still a BUM!

    Geez. The guy may be past his prime but he’s had a great career. Show him a little respect. It’s not like he cheated and is about to break one of Lou Gehrig;s records or anything, like some folks on the Yankees roster.
