Red Sox Re-Sign Andrew Miller

The Red Sox re-signed lefty Andrew Miller, tweets Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.  Miller had been arbitration eligible.  He received a non-guaranteed Major League deal worth $1.04MM, tweets WEEI's Alex Speier.

Miller, 26, posted a 5.54 ERA, 6.9 K/9, 5.7 BB/9, 1.11 HR/9, and 45.4% groundball rate in 65 innings for the Red Sox this year, faring a little better in 65 2/3 Triple-A frames.  The big southpaw might have been a non-tender candidate had he made it to the December 12th deadline unsigned.  Miller is represented by Frontline.

Awesome!  Still have hope for Miller.  Hopefully he can put it all together this yr, but I doubt it.  Maybe be a LOOGY?

I too am an enternal optimist, and hope that Miller has something to contribute this year.  I have no problem with it, so as long as it doesn’t cost them too much $$$, low enough that they can eat it and walk away from him if a better opportunity presents itself or he continues to be, well, Andrew Miller.

would love to see the duncan effect on Miller, but you have to throw the ball near the plate consistently to be effective

Could you guys maybe loan him to us for a few weeks, then?

Gotta love my Sox we don’t even got a pitching coach and we signed Andrew Miller the ultimate project pitcher.

Maybe Andrew Miller should consider throwing from his right hand this season.

That one’s been done before.  How about a different Queen song?

Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide. No escape from reality.

I guess that takes them out of the running on C.J. Wilson.

HE’S NOT THE PLAYER YOU THOUGHT HE WAS ALL THOSE YEARS AGO WHEN YOU TRADED HIM TO THE FISH.  LET IT GO, BOSTON.

Edit: I stand corrected. He was a Boston product originally, which is what I was getting at.

(It was Detroit that traded him to the Marlins)

*DETROIT TRADED HIM TO THE FISH.

Time traveler. Sox trade him to the Marlins where he wins a Cy Young. We will subsequently try to get him back in 2016.

The Red Sox didn’t trade him to the Marlins…

Maybe we should.

You’re just plain wrong. Andrew Miller was drafted by the Tigers in 2006. In 2007 he was traded (by the Tigers) to the Marlins in the Cabrera deal. In 2010 the Marlins traded him to the Red Sox. His only year with Boston was last year. 

Boston has never traded him to the Marlins (or anyone for that matter). And in NO WAY could he be reasonably characterized has being a “Boston product originally.” 

Put down the Miller Lite, learn where the Caps Lock button is on your keyboard, and know what the hell you’re talking about before you waste our time.

I thought he was going to Miami

Just as long as we find the middle ground with him. He’s not a frontline starter, he’s not a LOOGY either. Know his role, use him accordingly rather than viewing him as the next big thing.

Depending on the pitching coach he maybe useful. He’s still a lefty that can hit 96 in short stints.

I’m jealous of his mustache.

I’m jealous of the fact he doesn’t technically have to watch Andrew Miller pitch.

Also, I’m jealous of the fact he’ll make at least half a million dollars this year for pitching terribly. I would pitch terribly for a quarter of that amount.

Why not? If you’ve got the money to burn and the open spot in your AAA rotation, why not keep a project like Miller around? Might pan out. Hard to see how it hurts the Sox even if it doesn’t.

If it was to a minor league contract. But they didn’t say if it was that or a major league one.

He and Scott Kazmir should hang out. Then Oliver Perez might come in and crash the party.

Was this an MLB or MILB contract though?  That would make a huge difference on my opinion of this.
