Kevin Millwood will likely not be joining the Yankees, the YES Network’s own Jack Curry reported via Twitter. Millwood, who signed a Minor League deal toward the end of Spring Training with a May 1 opt-out date, did not impress the club in three outings down on the farm. In his most recent appearance, he lasted just two innings, giving up six earned runs on seven hits, and the club was not impressed with his stuff or velocity. If he can find another job with a Major League team, power to him, but the Yanks are, for now, satisfied with their pitching depth. Few will shed tears over this development.
Update: Buster Olney confirms it, Millwood has opted out. It’s been real, Kevin.
