Texas Signs Millwood

Posted in Baseball at 6:30 pm by

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s T.R. Sullivan writes the Rangers have signed free agent P Kevin Millwood.

The AP’s reports Millwood’s contract is worth $60 million over 5 years, though Texas can void the 5th year of the deal if the former Indians/Phillies/Braves hurler doesn’t pitch a minimum number of innings during prior years.

Chan Ho Park was unavailable for gloating purposes.

Milwood, 31, had an AL leading 2.86 ERA amongst starters last season, a figure that will surely be higher in 2006 given the likely effects of pitching in Arlington.

    I’m not a Ranger fan by any stretch, but I’ll still be sad to see Kev go 8-11 with an ERA of 5.60 next year. They would’ve been better off keeping the 60 mil and hanging onto Chris Young. That said, Wilkerson is a nice addition in left (their first legit LF since pre-bumps & bruises Rusty – Mench is trash), & supposedly Kinsler can tear it up if he makes the roster in Soriano’s spot. Maybe they can make a stride toward something that doesn’t resemble the Tigers next year.
