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.
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.
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.
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.
MIller cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Fresno on Friday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Miller was designated for assignment on Wednesday but passed through waivers unclaimed. He recorded a 4.02 ERA in 15.2 innings before missing a large portion of the season with a shoulder injury.
Miller (shoulder) was activated from the 60-day injured list and designated for assignment by the Nationals on Monday, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.
Miller has been sidelined since mid-May with a shoulder injury but recently completed a 10-game minor-league rehab assignment. The Nationals are apparently content with their current roster and didn't want to clear a 40-man spot for Miller, who posted a 4.02 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 11:4 K:BB in 15.2 innings before getting injured.
MIller (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.
Miller has already been out for over 60 days, so the move has no impact on his target return date, which remains unclear. The transaction clears space on the 40-man roster for the Nationals to select Michael Blazek's contract.
Miller (shoulder) moved his rehab assignment up to Triple-A Harrisburg on Thursday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Miller has been out since mid-May. He's thrown a pair of scoreless innings on his rehab stint thus far.
Miller (shoulder) will report to Low-A Hagerstown Tuesday for a rehab appearance, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.
If all goes well Tuesday, the 32-year-old will join Double-A Harrisburg on Thursday for another rehab outing. Miller is expected to continue the rehab stint through next weekend before potentially returning to the majors.
Miller (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Miller is back on the mound after suffering a setback earlier in the month, which prompted the right-hander to receive an injection in his injured shoulder. He's expected to remain in Florida to continue his throwing program at the team's spring training facilities following Thursday's series finale in Miami.
Miller received an injection to help deal with his strained right shoulder Friday, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.
Miller has been out for nearly a month. He resumed throwing in early June but was shut down after his shoulder pain returned. It's not clear when he's expected to be back in action.
Miller felt shoulder pain during his rehab assignment and has been shut down for now, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
He is seeing the team doctor Thursday. Miller recently threw a successful bullpen session but should now be considered out indefinitely.
Miller (shoulder) threw a successful bullpen session Tuesday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Miller reportedly felt good after Tuesday's side session, so he'll likely throw another within the next few days. He was moved to the 10-day injured list in mid-May, though a timetable for his return has yet to come into focus.
Miller (shoulder) threw from 90 feet Wednesday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
This is a positive step for Miller, who has been sidelined for close to two weeks with a right rotator cuff strain. Look for a timetable for his return to come into focus once he's cleared to resume mound work.
Miller landed on the 10-day injured list with a right rotator cuff strain Saturday.
Miller exited with the injury Friday against the Cubs, and it was evidently serious enough to require a trip to the injured list. It's not clear how long he's expected to be out. Tanner Rainey was recalled to take his place in the bullpen.
Miller has been diagnosed with a rotator cuff strain and is expected to be placed on the 10-day injured list, Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic reports.
Miller left Friday night's outing in pain, and he'll likely hit the shelf for the second time this season. The Nationals figure to call up a fresh arm once the move becomes official.
Miller was lifted from Friday's game against the Cubs due to an apparent injury, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.
After issuing a four-pitch walk to Javy Baez, Miller went to the back of the mound and crouched down in pain. He would eventually exit the ballgame with the team trainer. Miller has already spent time on the injured list with a back injury earlier this season, though it's unclear if he's dealing with a similar issue.
Miller struck out one in a perfect sixth inning Thursday to record his fourth hold of the season in a win over the Mets.
The right-hander has been stingy since returning to the mound from a back injury, reeling off eight straight scoreless appearances to lower his ERA to 3.00 on the year. Miller's 4:1 K:BB over that stretch is far from dominant, but in a Nats bullpen where little has gone right, he should continue to see setup work as he looks to match or beat last season's career-high 11 holds.
Miller (back) was activated off the 10-day injured list Friday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.
Miller made one appearance with High-A Potomac on Wednesday and won't require any further rehab outing as he returns from the back strain. The 31-year-old allowed four runs -- all solo homers -- on nine hits over 6.1 innings prior to suffering the injury.
Miller (back) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment Wednesday with High-A Potomac, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.
Miller has been on the shelf for a little less than two weeks with a lower-back strain, so he shouldn't need too many minor-league appearances before being cleared to rejoin the big-league bullpen. Prior to landing on the IL, Miller compiled a 5.68 ERA, 1.74 WHIP and 6:2 K:BB in 6.1 innings.
