Cardinals Working To Sign Trever Miller

FRIDAY, 5:23pm: Negotiations continue between the Cardinals and Miller.

THURSDAY, 5:02pm: Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch talked to Mozeliak, who said Miller’s deal has not been finalized.

THURSDAY, 8:42am: Rosenthal says it will be a two-year contract.  Correction to my earlier statement, Miller is not a Type B so the Rays will not get a pick.  Thanks to Mike A. for letting me know.

WEDNESDAY, 11:35pm: Ken Rosenthal says the Cardinals are in "serious discussions" with Miller, and would sign him to a one or two-year deal.

10:45pm: According to Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Cardinals signed lefty reliever Trever Miller (pending a physical).  GM John Mozeliak said southpaw relievers were flying off the shelves, so he acted quickly.  It’s a bit of a surprise in that the Cards were said to be targeting Will Ohman and Arthur Rhodes.

Miller, 35, posted a 4.15 ERA in 43.1 innings for the Rays this year.  He held lefties to a .209/.305/.308 line.  Earlier this month, the Rays chose Miller’s $400K buyout over a $2MM option.  Miller was a Type B free agent, so the Rays will get a sandwich pick for their loss.
