Word came down early today from Joel Sherman that Kevin Millwood has apparently rejected the offer of a minor league deal from the Yankees.
Mr. Millwood has been a popular point of discussion here during TYA’s opening week: Mike kicked the tires on Millwood and Edwin Jackson and I posited that Millwood might be a good idea at this point. At the beginning of offseason, I balked at the idea of giving Millwood a Major League deal, but warmed up a bit to it on Friday. He’s gotten attention from the Indians as well as the Yankees, but Sherman gave no indication that the Indians are willing to go to a Major League deal and we haven’t heard anything about Millwood and the Indians since Februrary 12th and they were unwilling to sign Millwood to a one year, $4MM deal. Because of that, the Yankees should feel no pressure to offer up a Major League deal.
Millwood is probably a better bet than Freddy Garcia or Bartolo Colon or Sergio Mitre or Ivan Nova, but that doesn’t mean the Yankees should just cave to his demands and throw money at their problem. Hold out for a minor league deal, Mr. Cashman and Co.
