Red Sox Re-Sign Andrew Miller

The Red Sox have re-signed 6-foot-7 lefty Andrew Miller, according to Jon Morosi of Fox Sports.

Miller had been arbitration-eligible, and the Red Sox likely would have not tendered the lefty an arbitration offer had the two sides not come to an agreement by the Dec. 12 deadline.

Miller has a chance to make the team as a bullpen arm or perhaps a fifth starter, but it’s far too early to gauge how the Sox staff will shape out. If he falters during Spring Training, there’s no guarantee he even makes the major league team.

The 26-year-old had an up-and-down season with the Red Sox in 2011, finishing 6-3 with a 5.54 ERA in 12 starts and five relief appearances.

He was one of many reasons for their 7-20 collapse in September, though. Miller allowed 13 earned runs in 10 innings, and his 11.70 ERA was the worst September ERA for a Red Sox pitcher in the post-World War 2 era. Right-handed hitters posted a .548 OBP against Miller in the final month.
