Latest on Millwood…
Kevin Millwood remains a prime topic of discussion at the Winter Meetings…
There are a number of teams interested in Millwood. The Orioles were the hottest but that seems to have cooled off.
The Rangers were interested in Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman, one of their top prospects, but were being offered David Hernandez and Brandon Erby. Both have physical issues.
Other teams are poking around including the Mets and the Diamondbacks. The Rangers want young pitching in return.
Word is there is a “reasonable” amount of interest Millwood from other teams and the interest is improving.
If the Rangers trade Millwood, it could free up some money to pursue other free agent pitchers. They have particular interest in Ben Sheets and Rich Harden, who is high on their list. They could also look into a right-handed bat, whether it be Vladimir Guerrero or Jermaine Dye. Guerrero is looking for a two-year deal.
