Mariners Release Justin Miller

The Mariners have released Justin Miller according to Ryan Divish of The Tacoma News Tribune (on Twitter). Miller informed the team that he planned to exercise the May 1st opt-out clause in his contract, so they told him he could leave now.

The 33-year-old right-hander appeared in six games for Seattle's Triple-A affiliate this year, striking out seven and walking five in 8 2/3 relief innings. He last appeared in the big leagues with the Dodgers last season, when he posted impressive strikeout (11.1 K/9) and walk (3.0 BB/9) rates in 24 1/3 innings. Miller has also pitched for Giants, Marlins, and Blue Jays in an MLB career that started back in 2002.

Don’t count out the Blue Jays and Yankees. If there is a single pitcher capable of throwing a ball one of those teams sign them.

Not a bad resurrection during the second half of his career, from 2007-10 he had a 3.76 ERA w/ 114 ERA+. What happened to this guy during his Toronto days? did they have to sew his arm back on?

Are you serious? Really? A pitcher for the last three years signs a minor league deal and works (yes works) his way in to the rotation. Not the typical get paid and their done. Look at what Seattle kept vs Millers stats. I have no idea what they were thinking. As you can see with their record as of today they don’t think! How about that marijuana smoking dude that hasn’t played in six years. Oh thats right the GM signed him back six years ago. He must have something to prove. Miller keeps getting better. Oh and by the way as a business owner he could be a great marketer for items to sell for the organization. I would take Miller!
