The media just caught up with Kevin Millwood as he was
walking in from his Triple-A start. He said he threw 102 pitches over eight
scoreless innings and overall was pleased with his performance.
“I would take that stuff any day on a big league field,”
said Millwood, who worked in all of his pitches, including the change-up he’s
been focused on improving this spring.
The Orioles likely Opening Day starter, Millwood said he
will scale back in his next — and final — spring tune-up, estimating that he would
only throw 50 or 60 pitches.
Closer Mike Gonzalez started the Double-A game on the field next
to Millwood and reportedly threw around 25 pitches, although I didn’t get a chance
to confirm that or see him throw.
