Cardinals' Justin Miller: Clears waivers
Miller (elbow) cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Memphis on Thursday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
Miller was designated for assignment early in the week, but he'll remain with the Cardinals' organization for now after going unclaimed on waivers. It's not yet clear whether the 34-year-old's right elbow strain -- which he suffered in late September -- will affect his availability for spring training in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Justin Miller: Designated for assignment
Miller (elbow) was designated for assignment by the Cardinals on Monday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Miller sustained a right elbow strain late in the 2021 season and was unable to return for the NL Wild Card Game. The right-hander will now lose his spot on the 40-man roster after Jordan Hicks (elbow) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Monday. Miller made 23 appearances with the Nationals and Cardinals in 2021 and posted a 6.16 ERA and 1.37 WHIP in 19 innings.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Justin Miller: Out with elbow strain
Miller landed on the 10-day injured list with a right elbow strain Saturday.
The move ends Miller's regular season, as there are just nine days left on the schedule. He'll close the year with a 6.16 ERA in 19 major-league innings for the National and Cardinals. Whether or not he'll be in the mix to return for the playoffs remains to be seen, though it would have to be a very minor strain for him to make it back by the Wild Card Game.... See More ...

Cardinals' Justin Miller: Earns first season win
Miller (1-0) fired a perfect eighth inning, earning the win over the Padres on Saturday.
Miller entered the eighth inning with the Cardinals down a pair of runs. After he retired the side in order, St. Louis took the lead to set up Miller with the win. He has two scoreless appearances since returning from the injured list with an elbow injury. The 36-year-old has a 5.14 ERA and 1.29 WHIP with nine strikeouts in 14 innings this season....

Cardinals' Justin Miller: Activated by Cardinals
Miller (elbow) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday.
Miller had been on the injured list with right ulnar nerve irritation since Aug. 18, but he recently made a pair of rehab appearances and allowed two runs on three hits and no walks while striking out four in two innings. The right-hander has a 7.80 ERA in the majors this year and should pitch mainly in low-leverage situations.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Justin Miller: Expected back Saturday
Miller (elbow) is expected to return from the injured list Saturday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
Miller has missed nearly a month with a nerve issue in his right elbow. He allowed a run in both of his rehab appearances but is nonetheless considered ready to go. With a 7.80 ERA in 15 major-league innings this season, he's unlikely to receive high-leverage opportunities.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Justin Miller: Beginning rehab assignment
Miller (elbow) is set to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
The right-hander last pitched for the Cardinals on Aug. 15 prior to being placed on the 10-day injured list. Once healthy, he will likely return to serving as a low-leverage reliever for the team as he sports a 7.80 ERA in 19 appearances in the majors this season.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Justin Miller: Playing catch
Miller (elbow) is progressing well in his recovery and recently began playing catch, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
Miller was placed on the injured list with right ulnar nerve irritation last week, but he was able to make a relatively quick return to throwing. The 34-year-old will need to resume mound work before a return timeline will come into focus.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Justin Miller: Lands on 10-day injured list
Miller was placed on the 10-day injured list with right ulnar nerve irritation Wednesday.
Miller hadn't pitched since Sunday, when he allowed two runs on three hits and no walks while striking out one in a relief inning against the Royals. It's not yet clear whether he'll be forced to spend more than the minimum of 10 days on the shelf, but right-hander Junior Fernandez was recalled to take his place in the bullpen.... See More ...

Cardinals' Justin Miller: Snaps impressive streak Sunday
Miller allowed two earned runs on a walk and a hit batsman over one-third of an inning in a win over the Reds on Sunday. He struck out one.
Miller had a rough start to the seventh inning, and he ultimately threw 21 pitches before getting the hook. The veteran right-hander had been in a brief but welcome groove prior to Sunday's outing, stringing together four straight scoreless efforts covering 2.2 frames. Miller has now allowed multiple earned runs in four of 13 appearances, leading to an ugly 9.72 ERA and 1.44 WHIP across 8.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Justin Miller: Earns first save of season
Miller picked up the save against San Francisco on Tuesday. He retired both batters he faced in the ninth inning.
With usual closer Alex Reyes having pitched each of the previous two days, the Cardinals went to Genesis Cabrera to close out the contest while nursing a one-run ninth-inning lead. Cabrera yielded a hit and a walk to his first two batters, and Miller was then brought in with runners on the corners and one out. The right-hander pulled off the save by inducing a popout and a flyout. In his first two games as a Cardinal, Miller has picked up a hold and a save while pitching 1.2 hitless and scoreless frames. That comes as a bit of a surprise after he gave up five runs in three innings for Washington before he was DFA'd in late June.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Justin Miller: Gets hold in team debut
Miller, just claimed off waivers from the Nationals on Saturday, fired a scoreless sixth inning during which he issued a walk and recorded a strikeout during a loss to the Rockies on Sunday.
The veteran right-hander got a crack at one of his old clubs in his first taste of game action with the Cardinals and came through with a solid frame. Miller has proven a serviceable middle-relief piece in past stops, and he projects to continue handling relatively low-leverage assignments in St. Louis that will likely limit his fantasy utility outside of very deep formats....

Cardinals' Justin Miller: Claimed by Cardinals
The Cardinals claimed Miller off waivers and activated him for Saturday's game against the Rockies.
Miller was designated for assignment by the Nationals on Tuesday after allowing five runs in three June innings. The righty has performed better in prior stints with the Nationals and Rockies dating back to 2015, so the Cardinals will now call upon him for additional bullpen depth. Roel Ramirez was optioned to Triple-A Memphis in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Justin Miller: Designated for assignment
The Nationals designated Miller for assignment Tuesday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.
The righty yielded five runs in just three innings after being called up June 15. Miller allowed two solo home runs while recording just one out Monday against the Mets, the last outing in his short stint on the big-league roster. He did excel as a minor-league reliever before getting the call-up, though, so it's possible another team in need of pitching considers claiming him.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Justin Miller: Contract selected by Nationals
Miller's contract was selected by the Nationals on Tuesday.
The 34-year-old has thrown 156.1 career major-league innings, the last of which came back in 2019. He owns a lifetime 4.43 ERA and has struck out 24.2 percent of opposing batters while walking 8.2 percent. The veteran right has dominated over 16.1 frames for Triple-A Rochester this season, allowing just a single earned run while striking out 46.8 percent of the batters he's faced. Max Scherzer (groin) landed on the injured list in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Justin Miller: Signs minor-league contract
Miller signed a minor-league contract with the Nationals on Friday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Miller last appeared in the majors in 2019 and spent the entire 2020 campaign with the Blue Jays and Reds at their alternate training sites. The 33-year-old won't be invited to major-league spring training in 2021, so he should begin the year in the minors.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Justin Miller: Shipped to Cincy
Miller was acquired by the Reds from the Blue Jays on Tuesday in exchange for international cap space.
The 33-year-old has been in Toronto's 60-player pool all season and will join a new organization for the closing stretch of the year. Miller appeared in 17 games for the Nationals last season and had a 4.02 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 11:4 K:BB, and he should report to the Reds' alternate training site.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Justin Miller: Makes 60-man roster
Miller will be a part of the Blue Jays' 60-man roster.
Miller joined the Blue Jays on a minor-league deal in December, and he posted a 1.50 ERA and a 6:1 K:BB over six innings during spring training before play was suspended. The right-hander has made appearances in the majors in five of the past six seasons, so he could provide a veteran option if injuries pile up in the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Justin Miller: Signs minor-league deal
Miller signed a minor-league contract with the Blue Jays on Monday that includes an invitation to spring training.
Miller had lackluster production in limited action in the majors last season, posting a 4.02 ERA with a 1.28 WHIP over 15.2 innings as he dealt with back and shoulder injuries. The 32-year-old has had success in the minors in the past, although it wouldn't be surprising to see him resurface in the majors if injuries occur in Toronto's bullpen.... See More ... See Less
