Rangers trade Millwood to O's for Ray

BY Ken Rosenthal • December 10, 2009

The Orioles have acquired right-hander Kevin Milllwood and an undisclosed amount of cash from the Rangers for reliever Chris Ray and a player to be named later.

The Rangers will pay approximately $3 million of Millwood's $12 million salary for 2010, one source said.

The deal, first reported by The Baltimore Sun, will bring the Orioles a veteran anchor for their emerging young rotation.

The cash in the deal will help the Orioles pay Millwood's $12 million salary for 2010. After that, Millwood will become a free agent.

Millwood has spent the last four of his 13 major-league seasons with the Rangers. He is 155-121 for his career with a 4.02 ERA.
