 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -Texas Rangers pitcher Kevin Millwood was scratched from Thursday's scheduled start against the New York Yankees due to a mild left hamstring strain.
Mike Wood was brought out of the bullpen to replace Millwood and make his first start for Texas.
Millwood was hurt Wednesday, and Rangers manager Ron Washington said Millwood was pulled from the start as a precaution.
Washington said Millwood, who is 2-3 with a 5.88 ERA, should be able to rejoin the rotation May 8-10 in New York during a series against the Yankees.
