WEEI’s Alex Speier reports that the Red Sox and Andrew Miller have avoided arbitration, agreeing to a one-year deal worth $1.903,125. Miller, in his third and final year of arbitration eligibility, had filed for $2.15 million while the Red Sox filed for $1.55 million.

Miller was having a solid season for the Red Sox in 2013 until he suffered a Lisfranc injury, torn ligaments in the middle of his left foot. Prior to the injury, Miller had a 2.64 ERA in 30 2/3 innings with a career-best strikeout rate and strikeout-to-walk ratio. Once hailed as a top prospect as a starter back in 2007, Miller has enjoyed success with the Red Sox — his third organization — over the past two seasons contributing out of the bullpen.

    Two things. The Red Sox, if anybody, would appreciate having as many arms in the bullpen as possible.

    Second, it would be funny if he became a vital cog in this bullpen after his injury last year paved the way for an instrumental part of the Red Sox WS run being unleashed.

    Always give tall lefties a little time. You have to calibrate potential a little slower with these guys.

    He struck out 48 guys but walked 17 in 30 innings. He’s so close to becoming a real dangerous weapon, I hope he can cut back the free passes a little…

    The Sox should offer Miller and Bradley Jr. to the Marlins in exchange for Stanton…

      Why the hell would the Marlins spend that much on a Loogy?

      Stanton is going to take much more than that, since there will be a bidding frenzy for him.

    Remember when he and Cameron Maybin were the main pieces of a deal for this guy named Miguel Cabrera? Still a debate of the winner of that deal.

      This trade and getting Scherzer and A Jax for Edwin Jackson and Granderson… two trades that helped the Tigers be competitive for the past decade.
