The Mariners look like they’re going to fill the spot that Michael Pineda will soon be vacating. The Jesus Montero deal isn’t official yet but assuming it happens, veteran Kevin Millwood is being signed to take his spot. He’s only getting a minor league deal and he’d get a shot at a rotation spot in spring training.
Millwood pitched in the minors most of last season before he latched on with the Rockies for nine starts. He threw 190 2/3 and 198 2/3 innings in 2010 and 2009 respectively so he can still pile on the innings. 2009 was a solid year but that was sandwiched between five other mediocre at best seasons. I like this because it’s low risk and you have to like the veteran presence.
