Millwood to start for Rockies on Wednesday

After starting 16 games for three different minor-league teams in two different systems, 36-year-old right-hander Kevin Millwood will start his first big league game of 2011 with a different team. Millwood will start for the Rockies on Wednesday in Cincinnati.

Millwood started the season with the Yankees organization before requesting a release on May 1. He was then signed by the Red Sox and asked for his release from Boston following Friday's game for Triple-A Pawtucket.

Millwood was headed home before he got the call from Rockies -- "I re-routed my flight to La Guardia and I am here," Millwood told Troy Renck of the Denver Post.

The Rockies needed another starter after Juan Nicasio underwent neck surgery after being hit by a comebacker in Friday's game against the Nationals. He will start in Nicasio's spot against Cincinnati's Mike Leake. He's 2-2 with a 6.33 ERA in four career starts at Great American Ball Park.

Millwood was 4-16 with a 5.10 ERA last season for the Orioles and was 7-2 with a 4.32 ERA in the minor leagues this season.
