Miller signed a minor league deal with the Twins on Wednesday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. The 34-year-old last pitched in the majors in 2014 and has 50 career MLB outings. He did not allow an earned run in 26 outings for an independent league team last year and was sitting 93-95 mph with his fastball. Look for him to serve as organizational depth at Triple-A.
Miller picked up the win in an inning of work while giving up three hits, a walk, and two earned runs in Triple-A Colorado Springs' matchup with Nashville on Tuesday. Miller had a rough spring as he gave up six earned runs on six hits in 3.1 innings of work for a team-worst 16.20 ERA. However, the 33-year-old right hander is coming off a great 2015 campaign where he compiled a 2.91 ERA over 74.1 innings along with 65 strikeouts. He's got 67.1 innings of major league experience under his belt along with a spiffy 3.48 ERA so he could be potential call up if the Brewers have a roster spot to fill.
The Rays reassigned pitchers Everett Teaford and Brandon Gomes to minor-league camp along with six other players, the Tampa Bay Times reports. Teaford and Gomes were in the mix for spots on the 25-man roster before being reassigned. The team also cut catcher Mayo Acosta, outfielders Corey Brown and Joey Butler and pitchers Jhan Marinez, Jim Miller and Jordan Norberto.
The Rays have signed pitcher Jim Miller to a minor-league deal, according to SBNation. Miller will report to major-league spring training as part of the contract. The 32-year-old tossed just 2 2/3 innings in the majors last season.
After pitching just three games in the bigs over two years and posting an ERA of 20.25 in both of them, reliever Jim Miller has been released by the Yankees. The 32-year-old right-hander got into two games in the bigs this season and gave up six runs in 2 2/3 innings.
