Report: Kevin Millwood Rejects Yankees' Minor League Offer

Filed under: , , ,

Kevin MillwoodKevin Millwood went 4-16 with a 5.10 ERA in 31 starts for the Orioles last season, but he apparently believes his track record entitles him to a major league deal in 2011.

There can be no other explanation for the New York Post report that Millwood recently rejected a minor league offer from the Yankees that was similar to the deal Freddy Garcia (12-6, 4.64 last year) signed. Garcia will make $1.5 million if he's in the majors and have a chance to accumulate $3.6 million more in bonuses.

Everyone knows the Yankees are desperately in need of starters, and they have recruited aging former standouts on minor league deals (Garcia, Bartolo Colon) to compete with in-house candidates like Ivan Nova and Sergio Mitre for rotation spots.
