The 33-year-old injured the hamstring in the final conditioning drill Sunday. He was scheduled to pitch two innings Friday against the Los Angeles Angels.
``It's frustrating,'' Millwood said. ``I felt like I was in really good shape and then something like this happens.''
Rangers pitching coach Mark Connor said left-hander Matt Harrison is the likely starter Friday, but manager Ron Washington said he hadn't looked that far ahead. Harrison came to Texas from Atlanta in the Mark Teixeira trade last year.
Millwood had a career-worst 5.16 ERA last season, and endured two stints on the disabled list with a left hamstring injury.
Washington sees no reason to rush Millwood back.
``When it's a hamstring you never know,'' the manager said.
Millwood said he'll try playing catch Tuesday.
