The Colorado Rockies have signed veteran starting pitcher Kevin Millwood, reports Troy Renck of the Denver Post. Renck also notes that he's heard Millwood starting Wednesday for the Rockies against the Reds is a possibility.

This comes just a day after Millwood was contemplating retirement, though he didn't really change his mind. He simply said he was likely to retire unless someone came calling immediately. The Rockies did, so he's giving it one more shot.

Millwood, 36, signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on May 19 after opting out of his contract with the Yankees on May 1. Overall, he was 7-2 with a 4.32 ERA in 16 minor-league starts this season -- 13 of which came with Red Sox Triple-A affiliate Pawtuckett -- striking out 76 and walking 31 in 89 2/3 innings.

Millwood is 159-137 with a 4.11 ERA in parts of 14 seasons with the Braves, Rangers, Phillies, Indians and Orioles.

Millwood is out of his prime has a high era and I don't think he will do good.
