It seems like every couple of days Heyman tweets something connecting the Yankees and Kevin Millwood. From what we heard, though, Millwood is looking for at least $4-5 million to sign with a team, and last we heard, that was too much for the Yankees.

Without other suitors aggressively making moves though it seems like his price will have to drop. Pitchers and catchers are due on Monday, so hopefully that price drop will happen before then.

As it currently stands, the Yankees have two open rotation spots. It is assumed that Ivan Nova will get the fourth spot and Bartolo Colon, Sergio Mitre and Freddy Garcia will fight some prospects for the fifth and final rotation spot.
