Tweet [1]

The Yankees beat writers have left Florida, but The Associated Press is still down there and offers some updates on Kevin Millwood, Mark Prior and Carlos Silva.

[2]CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — New York Yankees pitcher Kevin Millwood threw 75 pitches over 5-plus innings Tuesday in his second extended spring training start.

Millwood gave up four runs, three earned, and seven hits against Philadelphia minor leaguers. He faced two batters who singled and scored in the sixth to reach his scheduled pitch count.

The 36-year-old Millwood, who was 4-16 last season with Baltimore, felt good after the outing and could pitch for Double-A Trenton or Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Also, Mark Prior expects to pitch again for Class-A Tampa on Wednesday or Thursday. The right-hander pitched on consecutive days for the first time last weekend.

Carlos Silva will have his first on-field workout at the Yankees’ complex on Wednesday. The right-hander agreed to a minor league contract Saturday.
