Miller has quietly been one of the better left-handed specialists in baseball for the past decade, making 589 of his 694 career appearances after age 30 while posting a 3.74 ERA, but at age 38 he’ll have to compete for a roster spot during spring training.
Miller got into 48 games for the Cardinals, Blue Jays, and Red Sox last season, but recorded an average of just 0.52 outs per appearance while walking as many (12) as he struck out (12) in 21.1 total innings.
He’ll get $800,000 if he makes the Cubs, who would be his ninth team.
