DUNEDIN, Fl. (RSEN)–New York Yankees right-hander Kevin Millwood had a bit of a rough outing during his spring debut Saturday.

     Pitching for Triple-A Scranton (IL) against Triple-A Las Vegas (PCL), the 35-year old was on a 45-pitch limit.

     Millwood, who signed a minor league contract with the Yankees March 25, went two-plus innings allowing three runs on two hits while walking two and striking out two on 48-pitches.

     “It has been a while,” said Millwood of getting back on the mound, “Physically I felt good but I still have some mechanical things to work out.”

     Millwood will be staying behind when Scranton breaks camp.

     “I am still going to be here for the next couple of weeks,” said Millwood, “I’ll be trying to get my innings and pitch count built up then from there we will see what happens.  Probably go to Scranton before anything else.”

     The three-runs Millwood gave up came in the first inning courtesy of a three-run homer by OF Adam Loewen, a former major league pitcher with the Orioles.
