According to Maureen Mullen of CSNNE.com, veteran right-hander Kevin Millwood cleaned out his locker at Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday and has suddenly left the Red Sox organization.
Millwood signed a minor league contract with Boston in the middle of May after opting out of a similar pact with the Yankees. He was hoping that the Red Sox would allow him quicker passage to the major leagues, but May turned to June and June turned to July. And now it’s August. Still no promotion.
Millwood, 36, will likely aim to sign another minor league deal with a different team. He has posted a 4.32 ERA and 76/31 K/BB ratio in 89 2/3 innings this year in the minors, primarily at the Triple-A level.
Millwood finished 4-16 with a 5.10 ERA and 1.51 WHIP over 31 starts for the Orioles last season.
