Last Arbitration Case Closed

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.
