Millwood, Gonzo to thow in Minors games

Likely Opening Day starter Kevin Millwood will take his scheduled turn in the rotation
Saturday morning on the back fields of Ed Smith Stadium. The veteran
right-hander will look to get his pitch count over 100 in the Orioles Triple-A game against the Tampa Bay Rays prospects. Closer Mike Gonzalez will also pitch in the Double-A game and he said the goal is
to throw two innings.

The thought with both of those guys not pitching in the
Major League game is that the Orioles want to avoid the Boston Red Sox seeing
Millwood and Gonzalez until the regular season. 
It’s clearly not a sentiment shared by their divisional foes, since John
Lackey is slated to start Saturday’s Grapefruit League game.

And for my shameless
Spartan plug of the day
, Millwood has Michigan State in the team’s spread
poll. I guess that makes up (somewhat) for him being a Duke fan.

I don’t think winning the Cy Young award would make up for being a Duke fan!!!
