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.
