Red Sox Trade Andrew Miller for Top 100 Prospect Rodriguez

Chicago White Sox v Boston Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox have traded Andrew Miller to the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for minor league, left-handed pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez.

Rodriguez was a top 100 prospect, and ranked as one of the top five prospects in the Orioles minor league system before the start of 2014 season. He pitched this season at the Double-A level and has a 4.79 ERA and 3-7 over sixteen starts. He will benefit from the Red Sox player development program somewhere in the minor league system.

Miller was drafted by the Detroit Tigers in 2006, and would soon pitch for Marlins and the Red Sox. A highly touted prospect, he was compared to Randy Johnson due to his long lanky stature. Unfortunately, his transition to the big leagues was a rocky one. He underperformed as a starter and was injured while with the Red Sox in 2011. In 2012, former manager Bobby Valentine moved Miller to the bullpen where he began to flourish as a mid-reliever and closer.

This season Miller performed well for the Red Sox with a 2.30 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP over 42 ½ innings pitched.
