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. Feb 28 - 4:57 PM

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.

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.

Andrew Miller needs season-ending surgery to repair ligament damage in his left foot.

It's a big blow for the Red Sox, as Miller had developed into quite a weapon out of the bullpen. Boston was already on the lookout for relief help, and they figure to intensify their search now. Miller should be ready to go for spring training next year.

Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports the Red Sox are concerned that Andrew Miller (foot) may be dealing with a Lisfranc injury.

Miller was placed on the disabled list Sunday and is being sent back to Boston to undergo further tests. If he is diagnosed with a Lisfranc fracture, he'll almost certainly be looking at an extended absence. The Red Sox should provide an update on his status Monday.

X-rays to Andrew Miller's left foot were negative.

Miller was placed on the disabled list Sunday, but the severity of his injury isn't yet known. He'll now be sent back to Boston to undergo further tests. The Red Sox have recalled Alfredo Aceves to replace him on the active roster.

Red Sox placed LHP Andrew Miller on the 15-day disabled list with a left foot injury.

Miller was injured in the seventh inning of Saturday's game and will undergo x-rays before a timetable for his return is established. The Red Sox are expected to recall Alfredo Aceves from Triple-A Pawtucket to replace him on the active roster.

Andrew Miller left Saturday's game in the seventh inning with a left foot injury.

Miller was hurt as he ran to cover home, and he needed help off the field. If he's put on the DL, the Red Sox could recall Pedro Beato or Jose De La Torre. Ryan Rowland-Smith might be more worthy of a look, but the Red Sox might not want to put him on the 40-man roster right now.

Andrew Miller is proving his 2012 breakout was no fluke, posting a 3.86 ERA and 24/8 K/BB rate over 20 appearances.

The sixth overall pick in 2006 has successfully saved his career in Boston's bullpen. Miller went 21-29 with a 5.79 ERA between 2006-2011, mostly as a starter for the Tigers, Marlins and Red Sox. He hasn't started a game in the last two seasons and has rewarded Boston with a 3.48 ERA over 73 appearances. Miller's current strikeout rate is by far the best of his career.

Red Sox and LHP Andrew Miller avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.475 million contract.

The former #6 overall pick was eligible for arbitration for the second time and will earn a raise over the $1.04 million he earned a season ago. He found a home as a left-handed specialist in the Red Sox bullpen in 2012, posting a 3.35 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 51/20 K/BB ratio in 40 1/3 innings of work.

Red Sox activated LHP Andrew Miller from the 15-day disabled list.

Miller posted a 4.85 ERA but struck out 26 over 13 innings during his 12 rehab appearances. He'll be used in long relief.
Sun, May 6, 2012 10:55:00 AM

Andrew Miller (hamstring) walked four over 1 1/3 scoreless innings Thursday in his latest minor league rehab appearance with Triple-A Pawtucket.

While Miller struck out three and didn't allow a run, he threw just 20 out of 50 pitches for strikes. The Red Sox were considering activating him after Thursday's appearance, but he'll likely need to show a little more consistency first. His 30-day rehab window closes on May 7, so there's no rush.
