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.
