The Rockies have signed Kevin Millwood, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post (on Twitter). Millwood spent most of the season in Boston's minor league system, but the Red Sox released him yesterday.
Millwood has started 16 games for the minor league affiliates of the Yankees and Red Sox this year, posting a 4.32 ERA with 7.6 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9 in 89 2/3 innings. Those numbers resemble the Major League totals Millwood posted in 2009-10 (4.37 ERA with 5.9 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9). Millwood, a 14 -year veteran, had started at least 21 MLB games every year since 1997 before this season.
