Orioles Interested In Millwood

Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FoxSports.com are reporting that the Orioles have called the Rangers about Kevin Millwood, though talks are not serious, according to one source.

The source said the Rangers would like to move Millwood's $12MM salary for 2010 in order to sign Jermaine Dye.

MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan, however, reports that the Rangers are not interested in moving Millwood.

Millwood pitched to a 3.67 ERA in 198 2/3 innings in 2009, but his strikeout rate dropped from 6.7 per nine innings in 2008 to 5.6 in 2009.

Dye, meanwhile, hit .250/.340/.453 in 2009. He's indicated a willingness to move to first base, but that kind of offensive production wouldn't be enough for the position.
