Cubs signed LHP Trever Miller to a minor league contract.

The deal comes with an invitation to spring training, where Miller will get a shot at an Opening Day bullpen spot. If the 38-year-old lefty specialist makes the big league roster, he will earn a salary of $800,000.

Red Sox purchased the contract of LHP Trever Miller from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Miller signed a minor league contract with the Red Sox after being released by the Blue Jays last month. The 38-year-old left-hander has a 4.19 ERA and 11/12 K/BB ratio over 19 1/3 innings between Toronto and St. Louis this season. He likely won't be trusted in high-pressure situations.

Red Sox signed LHP Trever Miller to a minor league contract.

Released by the Blue Jays nine days ago, Miller has been assigned to Triple-A Pawtucket. Miller has posted ugly numbers in 19 1/3 major-league innings between the Cardinals and Blue Jays this season, turning in a 4.19 ERA, 1.91 WHIP and 11/12 K/BB ratio while allowing left-handers to bat .308 against him.

Blue Jays released LHP Trever Miller.

He was designated for assignment a few days ago and cleared waivers. Miller is now free to sign with another organization and will likely have to accept a minor league deal to do so. The Jays acquired Miller last month as a throw-in with Colby Rasmus. The veteran lefty specialist has posted an 11/12 K/BB ratio in 45 appearances this season.

Blue Jays designated LHP Trever Miller for assignment.

The Jays acquired Miller last month as a throw-in with Colby Rasmus. The veteran lefty specialist has posted an 11/12 K/BB ratio in 45 appearances this season but should be able to find a gig with another team.

The Blue Jays confirmed Wednesday evening that Trever Miller will not be flipped to the White Sox.

ESPN's Buster Olney reported Wednesday afternoon that Miller would be moved to Chicago after the completion of the Colby Rasmus blockbuster. But that's apparently not the case. Miller, a veteran left-hander, has posted a 4.02 ERA in 15 2/3 innings this season. He'll operate as a lefty specialist for Toronto.

Blue Jays acquired LHP Trever Miller from the Cardinals in the Colby Rasmus deal.

Miller told Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he hasn't heard anything about being flipped to the White Sox, contrary to an earlier report from ESPN's Buster Olney, so it looks like he'll stay put for now. The 37-year-old left-hander has a 4.02 ERA and 9/10 K/BB ratio over 15 2/3 innings this season.

Trever Miller hasn't retired a single batter in his last five appearances.

OK, so he's only faced five hitters (walking three and giving up two hits), but the struggles are really getting to the veteran southpaw. "I haven't gotten one out," he said. "And it feels like two months." The 37-year-old has now allowed five hits while walking four in four innings this season. With Brian Tallet on the DL, Miller really needs to find his groove as the Cards' only lefty currently in the bullpen.

Trever Miller will earn $2 million in 2011 via a vesting option.

The option required Miller to appear in 45 games in 2010, and he appeared in 57. Holding left-handed hitters to a .203/.294/.257 batting line and posting a 1.28 WHIP overall, he was an asset to the Cardinals' bullpen this past season and should be a reliable specialist again in 2011.

Trever Miller made an appearance in Saturday's loss to the Padres.

Miller hadn't pitched since September 6 because of a strained muscle in his left forearm. He walked the only batter he faced, but the important thing is that the LOOGY appears healthy again.

Trever Miller (forearm) threw 25 pitches Monday and declared himself available again for relief duty.

Miller has been sidelined since September 6 due to a strained muscle in his left forearm. "They didn't find anything wrong with the ligament," said the southpaw, "which looked really good. I'm 37 years old and I've still got a nice, healthy ligament in there." He has a 4.02 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and has held left-handed hitters to a .203/.292/.266 batting line this year.

Trever Miller (forearm) is expected to miss 1-3 weeks with a strained muscle in his left forearm.

The earliest he would return is for next weekend's series against the Padres, or he could be out up until the last series of the season against the Rockies. The Cardinals just recently got fellow lefty reliever Dennys Reyes back from the DL, and they would prefer not to use him too often, but it sounds like they might not have a choice. Miller has had another solid year out of the Cards bullpen, posting a 4.02 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and .203 BAA vs. left-handed hitters.

Trever Miller is considered day-to-day with a left forearm strain.

"They [the medical staff] see a problem," Cardinals manager Tony La Russa on Thursday. "We're just going to day-to-day it, see when he's available. I don't think he's available [Thursday], for example. ... We'll just use right-handers that can get left-handers out." We originally heard that Miller could miss "several days," but it now sounds like he has a shot to return as soon as this weekend. La Russa will play the matchups while he's out, but he also has Dennys Reyes, who is perfectly capable against left-handed batters.

Trever Miller has been diagnosed with a left forearm strain.

Miller left the Cardinals in Milwaukee and headed back to St. Louis to get the diagnosis. He will be out for at least another week and perhaps longer. Dennys Reyes, the Cards' other lefty, will handle the load.
