Los Angeles Dodgers Trade With Milwaukee Brewers For Tyson Miller

The Los Angeles Dodgers traded for Tyson Miller, sending cash considerations to the Milwaukee Brewers. Daniel Hudson was transferred to the 60-day injured list in order to make room for Miller on the Dodgers’ 40-man roster.

Hudson had been placed on the 15-day IL July 6 because of a sprained MCL in his right knee. The Dodgers are hopeful Hudson will pitch again in 2023, but he faces a long road ahead. The roster move prevents him from returning until early September.

Miller was designated for assignment on July 8 after appearing in a career-high seven games for the Brewers this season. The 27-year-old turned in four scoreless appearances but struggled in other games and has a 5.79 ERA and 1.29 WHIP this season.

Miller was selected out of California Baptist University by the Chicago Cubs in the fourth round of the 2016 MLB Draft. Miller made his MLB debut with the Cubs in 2020, though only appeared in two games (one start).

He remained part of the Cubs organization through the end of May 2021 before getting DFA’d and claimed off waivers by the Texas Rangers.

Miller spent a portion of the 2022 season up with the Rangers, pitching to a 10.97 ERA and 2.25 WHIP across four games (two starts).

Overall at the Major League level, the right-hander is 1-2 with a 7.92 ERA, 6.11 FIP and 1.64 WHIP across 13 games (three starts).

In his Minor League career, Miller has gone 34-35 with one save, a 4.03 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 152 games (100 starts).

Can Tyson Miller help Dodgers bullpen?

Although Miller has struggled throughout a brief Major League career, he provides the Dodgers with some experience and another option as they’ve needed to rely on plenty of depth.

Dodgers pitching coaches have a proven track record in being able to assist with improvement, and that could potentially apply to Miller.
