Millwood and Phillies agree on one-year deal

Postby WebHamster » Tue Feb 10, 2004 3:00 pm

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Kevin Millwood signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday, avoiding arbitration.

Millwood, Philadelphia's Opening Day starter in 2003, will earn $11 million in 2004, plus performance and award bonuses. He originally filed at $12.5 million, with the club countering at $10 million.

"We are pleased that we were able to get the case settled," Phillies general manager and vice president Ed Wade said. "It's our hope that we can continue to have an open dialogue with Kevin regarding him being a Phillie for a long time."

In his first season with the Phillies, Millwood went 14-12 with a 4.01 ERA in a team-best 35 starts. He tied for the National League lead with a career-best three shutouts and his five complete games were tied for second in the league.

Millwood hurled his first career no-hitter on April 27, becoming the ninth pitcher in Phillies history to turn the trick, when he beat the San Francisco Giants, 1-0.

In seven major league seasons, the 29-year-old righthander is 89-58 with a 3.78 ERA over 203 career games for Atlanta and Philadelphia. He was acquired by the Phillies for catcher Johnny Estrada in December of 2002.

Second baseman Placido Polanco remains the Phillies' only arbitration-eligible player. His case is scheduled to be heard on February 17.

In other news, the team announced that assistant general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. is in Boston Tuesday interviewing with Frank McCourt, the new owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, for the team's general manager position.
