Yesterday the last open case on the Red Sox docket was closed.
Andrew Miller, the dominating left handed reliever has been signed for the 2014 campaign at a reported $1.9 million and thereby avoided an arbitration case.
When they started negotiations this offseason, Miller was asking for $2.15 million and the Red Sox countered with $1.55 million.
It seems they met just above the middle and we have a key piece of the bullpen to bridge innings between the starters and our closer.
A long time follower of Miller, I was very excited to see him in the Red Sox uniform. In 2012 he was fantastic, posting a 3.35 ERA in 40 1/3 innings.
He was building upon that campaign in 2013, allowing just a 2.64 ERA through early July, when he succumbed to a foot injury that he expects to have no troubles from in 2014.
