Reds re-signed Corky Miller to a minor league contract
The 37-year-old backstop has been a putrid hitter in his career, slashing a meager .193/.277/.306 in 539 sporadic at-bats in 11 seasons. He is a capable defender though, and will provide organizational depth for the Reds. Sat, Dec 7, 2013 12:27:00 PM
