The Los Angeles Dodgers signed Shelby Miller to a one-year, $1.5 million contract to give them 36 players on their 40-man roster.
Miller is coming off just four appearances for the San Francisco Giants last season and looks to be next in a long line of Dodgers pitching coaches succeeding in aiding a turnaround.
The 32-year-old didn’t allow a run in his first three games with San Francisco, then gave up five in a final appearance. He struck out 14 of 30 batters faced during that span. Miller was with the Giants for the final two weeks of the regular season.
While pitching at the Triple-A level this year for the New York Yankees and Giants, the right-hander went a combined 2-4 with a 2.87 ERA and 1.11 WHIP.
A former first-round pick of the St. Louis Cardinals, Miller converted to a relief role since the midway point of the 2019 season. He was an All-Star in 2015 but largely struggled since that season with the Atlanta Braves.
Included in that was Miller undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2017. He opted out of the 2020 season due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and has pitched for seven teams throughout his career.
Shelby Miller among Dodgers under contract for 2023
Miller joins Austin Barnes, Mookie Betts, Freddie Freeman, Daniel Hudson, Max Muncy, Chris Taylor and Blake Treinen as Dodgers under contract for the 2023 season.
Though, that doesn’t include those who are arbitration-eligible and were tendered a contract, nor players with less than three years of Major League service time.
The Dodgers additionally have not yet finalized the re-signing of Clayton Kershaw. His one-year deal was reported November 11.
