Orioles acquired LHP Andrew Miller from the Red Sox for LHP Eduardo Rodriguez.
It's likely that Boston didn't want to ship Miller to a division rival, but there wasn't a lot they could do when Dan Duquette put Rodriguez on the table. This is a steep price, but Baltimore absolutely had to bulk up its bullpen for the stretch run, and they weren't going to do better than Miller. The left-hander boasts a 2.34 ERA and 69/13 K/BB ratio in 42 1/3 innings this year and now teams with Zach Britton and Brian Matusz to give Baltimore an elite trio of southpaw relievers.

ESPN Boston's Gordon Edes reports that the Tigers are not getting left-hander Andrew Miller.

Detroit was said to be close to a deal for the reliever, but those talks have apparently fallen flat. Miller, who owns a 2.34 ERA and 69/13 K/BB ratio in 42 1/3 innings this year, is drawing interest from a range of teams. He should be traded somewhere by the deadline.
Jul 31 - 2:27 PM

The Tigers are "making a big push" for Andrew Miller, according to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick.

Detroit, which acquired Joakim Soria from the Rangers last week, would like to upgrade its supply of left-handed relievers, which currently counts Ian Krol, Phil Coke and Blaine Hardy amongst its ranks. Miller would be a godsend. He's posted a 2.34 ERA and 69/13 K/BB ratio over 42 1/3 innings this year and is arguably the top available left-hander out there.

The Red Sox are "getting swarmed" by Andrew Miller offers, reports USA Today's Bob Nightengale.

"Once he's dealt, dominos will fall," an executive told Nightengale. Presumably, that means teams looking for relievers refuse to move onto second options before Boston chooses a Miller package. You can't blame the Red Sox for being choosy: Miller has been one of the game's best left-handed relievers over the last three years, boasting a 2.78 ERA in 140 appearances. He's been even better in 2014, collecting a 2.34 ERA and 69/13 K/BB ratio over 42 1/3 innings. The Braves, Pirates and Royals have all been connected to the lefty reliever, and ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reported Wednesday that Boston wants a top prospect in return. They have four hours left to find one.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Red Sox are asking for teams' best prospects in trade talks for Andrew Miller.

As Crasnick notes, they'll surely have to drop their demands in order to get anything done. Miller is having a fantastic season, posting a 2.40 ERA and 66/13 K/BB ratio over 41 1/3 innings, but clubs aren't going to surrender top talent for him. The Braves, Pirates and Royals have all been connected to the lefty reliever.
Jul 30 - 12:03 PM

Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports that the Royals are one of multiple teams interested in Andrew Miller.

The Pirates and Braves have also been linked to Miller in recent days. The 29-year-old left-hander owns a fine 2.45 ERA and 65/13 K/BB ratio over 40 1/3 innings this season. He's due to become a free agent this offseason.

Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that the Pirates are interested in Andrew Miller.

The Braves are also in on Miller, with CBS Sports' Jon Heyman calling the left-hander their "prime bullpen target." The interest in Miller is no surprise given his 2.31 ERA and absurd 64/12 K/BB ratio over 39 1/3 innings this season.
Jul 27 - 12:49 PM

David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Andrew Miller "is (a) lefty the Braves want."

However, as O'Brien notes, the Red Sox are holding off on selling as long as possible in hopes that they can creep back into the playoff hunt. Miller is drawing interest from many teams and will be a hot commodity if Boston does wind up selling. The lefty boasts a 2.13 ERA and ridiculous 61/12 K/BB ratio over 38 frames this season.
Jul 21 - 8:09 PM

According to Peter Gammons, the Red Sox have fielded more trade inquiries on Andrew Miller than anyone else on their team.

The 29-year-old southpaw has blossomed as a left-handed specialist since moving to the bullpen, and owns a terrific 2.19 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 60/12 K/BB ratio over 37 innings on the season. He is the type of bullpen addition that could put a contending team over the top, meaning the Red Sox should be able to net a decent return package should they decide to deal him.

Andrew Miller walked three of the five batters he faced and was charged with three runs Friday against the Twins.

Miller is back after missing the second half of last season with a damaged ligament in his left foot. He's essentially assured a spot in the Boston bullpen, assuming he doesn't typically walk 60 percent of the batters he faces.

Red Sox and LHP Andrew Miller avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.9 million contract.

Miller requested $2.15 million and the Sox countered with an offer of $1.55 million, so the $1.9 million agreement comes in slightly above the midpoint between the figures. Miller enjoyed great success last season as a left-handed specialist, posting a 2.64 ERA and 48/17 K/BB ratio over 30 2/3 innings. The 28-year-old will be a key member of the Red Sox bullpen again in 2014.
Feb 15 - 10:25 PM

Andrew Miller requested $2.15 million and was offered $1.55 million from the Red Sox when arbitration figures were exchanged on Friday.

The tall hard-throwing southpaw who had once looked like a tremendous bust has found a home in the Red Sox bullpen the past two seasons. He will take home a modest raise over the $1.475 million that he earned during the 2013 season.
Jan 17 - 7:44 PM

Andrew Miller is progressing well in his recovery from his left foot injury and expects to be fully healthy by the start of spring training.

The 28-year-old southpaw came into his own in the Red Sox bullpen in 2013, registering a 2.64 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 48/17 K/BB ratio over 30 2/3 innings before undergoing season-ending surgery to repair ligament damage in his foot. As long as he can keep the walks in check, he should continue to be a very valuable weapon in the Red Sox bullpen.

Red Sox activated LHP Andrew Miller from the 60-day disabled list.

Miller underwent season-ending surgery to repair ligament damage in his left foot in July. He should be ready to go for spring training next year.

Red Sox transferred LHP Andrew Miller from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

This was done as a procedural move to make room on the 40-man roster for the newly-acquired Matt Thornton. Miller is set to undergo surgery to repair ligament damage in his left foot and is expected to miss the rest of the season.
