Yesterday we learned that the Yankees are still considering Kevin Millwood to help round out their rotation. The Bombers might feel compelled to boost their starting five, even after bringing Freddy Garcia and Bartolo Colon aboard recently. They could also afford the veteran’s $4-5MM price tag – something that other clubs are hesitant over.
The Indians have long been linked to Millwood but would prefer to bring someone in on a minor league deal. A $4-5MM deal would be too rich for their blood but as time passes one has to wonder if the right-hander’s camp might be willing to take less. The 36-year-old also hasn’t ruled out a return to Baltimore and MLBTR’s Ben Nicholson-Smith recently wrote that it would make sense for teams like the Royals, Rockies, and Mariners to join the fray.
