Kevin Millwood Is “Off The Block”

Kevin Millwood's underwhelming performance in recent starts coupled with injury rumors have resulted in the hurler being taken "off the block", according to Britt Ghiroli of MLB.com (via Twitter).  Ghiroli theorized that Millwood could be injured after he lasted just one inning and allowed five runs in today's start against the Tigers.

The veteran pitcher's value was already plummeting after a dreadful June.  Millwood posted an 8.82 ERA with 6.8 K/9 and 4.4 BB/9 in six starts.  His latest outing gives him an ERA above ten in his last seven starts.

The Mets were linked to the 35-year-old for quite some time but are said to no longer have him on their radar.  Other teams, such as the Cardinals, have considered Millwood, though his $12MM salary is a sticking point.

or maybe he’s faking so he doesn’t have to pitch with that horrendous offense.

With that ERA, he’s more of the problem than the Orioles offense.

There’s like 3 pitchers in the rotation that have a worse ERA than him.

A pitcher’s ERA and a team’s offense have nothing in common.
