Released by the Blue Jays two weeks ago, veteran left-handed reliever Trever Miller has found a new home with the Red Sox on a minor-league contract.

Miller began this season in St. Louis and was traded to Toronto as part of the big Colby Ramus deal, but appeared in just six games before being let go.

His numbers this season aren’t pretty and at age 38 he may be just about done, but Miller has been a quality left-handed specialist for the better part of a decade and held left-handed hitters to a .203 batting average and .551 OPS last year.

For now the Red Sox will stash him at Triple-A.

    The Red Sox are trying to corner the market on retread pitchers with the last name of MIller.

      My thought as a well: Wade, Andrew and now Trever.
