The Texas Rangers sent pitcher Kevin Millwood and about $3 million to Baltimore yesterday for reliever Chris Ray and a player to be named.
Millwood, who will turn 35 in two weeks, is owed $12 million next season in the final year of his contract, a salary he guaranteed himself by reaching 180 innings this year.
The Rangers had cash-flow problems this year, with Major League Baseball stepping in to provide assistance, and owner Tom Hicks is trying to sell the team.
Millwood, a Phillie in 2003 and 2004, was 13-10 with a 3.67 ERA last season. Ray, 28 next month, was 0-4 with a 7.27 ERA in 46 games. He had Tommy John surgery in 2007.
Brewers. Free-agent pitchers Randy Wolf and reliever LaTroy Hawkins signed with Milwaukee.
Wolf, a former Phillie, is believed to have signed a deal worth $29.75 million over three years. It includes a $10 million option for 2013. The 34-year-old lefthander was 11-7 with a 3.23 ERA this year with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Hawkins, a righthanded reliever who will turn 37 on Dec. 21, will receive $7.5 million over two seasons. He was 1-4 with a 2.13 ERA and 11 saves in 15 chances.
Yankees. The World Series champions and pitcher Andy Pettitte agreed on a $11.75 million, one-year contract.
The deal represents a raise for the 37-year-old lefthander, who made $10.5 million last season.
Pettitte became the first pitcher to start and win the clincher in all three postseason series.
His 18 postseason victories are a major-league record.
Astros. Houston got hard-throwing reliever Matt Lindstrom from the Florida Marlins for two low-level minor-leaguers and a player to be named.
Lindstrom has a fastball that can reach 100 m.p.h., though he sometimes has trouble harnessing that power.
