More on Millwood

Per the Startlegram’s Jim Reeves, Kevin Millwood’s contract:

2006: $6.0 million
2007: $7.5 million
2008: $8.5 million
2009: $11.0 million
2010: $12.0 million, which vests if Millwood pitched 540 innings during 2007-2009, or 360 innings during 2008-2009, or 180 innings in 2009. Texas has the option to keep him for $12.0 million even if he doesn’t reach those standards.

Millwood also receives a $15 million signing bonus paid over an “extended period.?

Cleveland did offer arbitration to Millwood, a "Type B" free agent, so Texas will forfeit a second-round draft pick next June. Texas won’t receive any extra picks since they declined to offer arbitration to their only rated free agent, Kenny Rogers.
