Millwood takes shot with Mariners

After 14 major league seasons, Kevin Millwood might still have a place on a big-league roster. His reputation as a durable pitcher and experience mentoring young pitching staffs are part of the reason Millwood finds himself in the Seattle Mariners’ camp at Peoria, Ariz. If the 37-year-old can produce during spring training, he might find himself with his fourth club in four seasons. Once an ace in Atlanta and Texas, Millwood (pictured right) signed a minor league contract last month and is competing for a spot in Seattle’s five-man rotation. “I still enjoy the game, and I still feel like I can compete at this level and win ballgames,” Millwood said. Millwood has 163 career wins and the M’s have largely unproven pitchers competing for the other rotation spots. – AP
