Millwood Files for Free Agency
PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Kevin Millwood filed for free agency Wednesday.
Millwood, 28, went 14-12 last season with a 4.01 ERA and threw his first career no-hitter against the San Francisco Giants on April 27.
The right-hander spent his first six seasons with the Atlanta Braves before he was traded to Philadelphia for minor league catcher Johnny Estrada on Dec. 20 in a cost cutting move. Millwood signed a $9.9 million, one-year contract with the Phillies.
Expected to be the team’s ace this season, Millwood went 7-2 in the first two months of the season. But he fell off down the stretch, going 4-6 after the All-Star break.
