August 8, 2011

August 8, 2011

Millwood is granted release by Red Sox; uncertain of future

August 7, 2011

PAWTUCKET — Kevin Millwood’s tenure with the Pawtucket Red Sox has come to an end. Now the 36-year-old will have to weigh whether to seek out another opportunity or bow out gracefully, a decision that could be complicated based on the right-handed pitcher’s belief that he still has something to give.
For now, though, Millwood plans on visiting family he has based up and down the East Coast and squeeze in as many rounds of golf as possible. That sounds like someone who isn’t optimistic he’ll be on a mound again this season.
