Kevin Millwood Signs Minor League Deal with Red Sox

The Red Sox and Kevin Millwood have agreed to a minor league contract, according to Yahoo!’s Tim Brown.

The 36-year-old Millwood signed a minor league deal with the Yankees earlier this year, but was never called up. He opted out of his deal in mid-April after three starts. Last season with the Orioles, Millwood went 4-16 with a 5.16 ERA.

The Red Sox, like all teams, are in need of some starting pitching depth. John Lackey and Daisuke Matsuzaka are in the disabled list, forcing Terry Francona to put both Tim Wakefield and Alfredo Aceves into the staff.

The Cubs and Angels were among the other teams that were interested in Millwood’s services.
