Kevin Millwood has reached a deal with the Colorado Rockies, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post.

Millwood, who had an opt-out clause in his minor league contract with the Red Sox, was granted his release over the weekend. The 36-year-old veteran managed a 51 record with a 4.28 ERA through 73.2 innings in 13 starts with Pawtucket. Maureen Mullen offers some insight on his established career.

Renck reports that Millwood could start for the major league club on Wednesday.

From HardballTalk:

Millwood last started a big-league game on September 29 of last season ... Given his performance last season, drop in velocity, and mediocre numbers at Triple-A, it's tough to envision (him) having a whole lot of success in the majors at this point, particularly calling Coors Field home.
