After being released by the Rangers last week, Miller will return to the National League as he tries to restart his career. Miller posted a total of 8.59 points on 24 innings for Texas, scoring almost as many goals (29) as sacks (30), and eventually lost his rotator position due to his inability to continue his struggles.
The 44 innings represent the highest number of Miller shots in the past two seasons, while Tommy John's surgery and a series of separate elbow problems limited the right-hander to only 38 innings in 2017-18. Prior to these two injury-ridden seasons and his bad 2016 with the Diamondbacks, Miller was considered one of the most promising young arms in baseball, after three impressive years with the 2013-15 Braves and Cardinals.
Miller is still only 28 years old and still displays a fast average of his fast ball, making it a risk to take for the Brewers. Milwaukee will only pay Miller the prorated minimum wage if he reaches the MLB lineup of the club, as the Rangers are in charge for the remainder of the one-year contract he signed last winter. ($ 2 million in guaranteed salary and $ 400,000 in incentive bonuses). ).
