BOSTON (CBS) – The Red Sox granted Kevin Millwood’s request to be released on Saturday night, according to the official Twitter feed of the Pawtucket Red Sox.

The Sox signed Millwood in May after he was released by the Yankees, and the veteran righty hoped to get a chance to start for Boston down the stretch. That chance never came as the Sox called up Andrew Miller and traded for Erik Bedard.

Millwood was 5-1 with a 4.28 ERA in 13 starts for AAA-Pawtucket, collecting 66 strikeouts over 73.2 innings.

Over his major league career, Millwood has a 159-137 record with a 4.11 ERA for the Braves, Phillies, Indians, Rangers and Orioles.
