Kevin Millwood, who spent 2012 with the Seattle Mariners, is calling it a career after 16 seasons in the majors. Millwood reportedly only wanted to pitch near his home of Gainesville, Georgia, and the Braves (nor the Rays) showed any interest in him this offseason. For his career, Millwood finishes with a 169-152 record with a 4.11 ERA as a member of seven different teams. After spending his first six seasons with the Braves, Millwood became a journeyman after Atlanta dealt him to the Phillies, with his longest stop after Atlanta being a four season stint with the Rangers. Over the last tour seasons, Millwood played with four different teams, finishing up with the Mariners in 2012. Millwood was a part of two no-hitters during his career. His first came in April 2003 with the Phillies against the Giants, and his second came last June as a member of the Mariners against the Dodgers, with Millwood throwing six innings before five relievers finished the game off for Seattle. Ironically, Millwood's team earned 1-0 wins in both of those no-hitters. Injuries derailed a promising career and prevented Millwood from ever reaching his full potential, but he still accumulated nearly 50 wins above replacement during his career, and he made a hair shy of $90 million during his career. At the end of the day, the 38-year old put together a fine career for himself, and provided many memorable moments. [Shelby Star] [follow]
