Cotillo: Yankees re-sign Jim Miller to minor league contract


Via Chris Cotillo: The Yankees will re-sign right-hander Jim Miller to a minor league contract. I assume he’ll get an invitation to Spring Training. The team brought fellow righty David Herndon back on a minor league deal last month as well.

Miller, 31, appeared in one game for the Yankees in September, allowing three runs in 1.1 innings. He spent the majority of the season with Triple-A Scranton (3.55 ERA and 3.22 FIP in 63.1 innings) after being claimed off waivers from the Athletics last winter. In 64.2 career big league innings with the Yankees, A’s, and Rockies, Miller has a 2.78 ERA and 4.64 FIP. He’ll again head to Triple-A to serve as bullpen depth.

    Is Matt Daley still under contract, or do we have to bring him back?

      He should still be under team control for his last pre-arb year next year, unless they really need to DFA him to get his 40-man spot back.

      He should be kept around, if for no other reason than he’s one of the few guys to ever reach the majors from my alma mater. :-)

        Matt Daley will be such an awesome trivia question answer one day.

    Right now there are 6 spots open on the 40 man so with free agents and minor leaguers like Sanchez and Slade to be added Daley, Stewart and Nix will probably be non tendered and perhaps resigned as minor leaguers to clear spots on the 40 man…

    Miller is one of those guys who flies under the radar & few take notice of. Most of his ERA was surrendered in a few bad outings, & the majority of his outings were lights out, particularly after the first third of his year. Like him a lot, & think we could see a lot of him in the Bronx in ’14.
