Signs minor-league deal
PToronto Blue Jays  NRI
December 2, 2019
Miller signed a minor-league contract with the Blue Jays on Monday that includes an invitation to spring training.
ANALYSIS
Miller had lackluster production in limited action in the majors last season, posting a 4.02 ERA with a 1.28 WHIP over 15.2 innings as he dealt with back and shoulder injuries. The 32-year-old has had success in the minors in the past, although it wouldn't be surprising to see him resurface in the majors if injuries occur in Toronto's bullpen.

Stat Review
How does Justin Miller compare to other relievers?
This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

Collette Calls: NL Closers in Waiting

We all know about Jeurys Familia, but Jason Collette tells fantasy owners who they should also be focused on in the Mets' bullpen, and on every NL team.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2017
2016
After not appearing in the majors in 2017, Miller spent the offseason working on conditioning and mechanics. He was signed to a minor-league deal by the Nationals, ostensibly for organizational depth. Miller began with Triple-A Syracuse. With the help of a newfound 95-mph fastball, Miller didn't allow a run in 13 innings, surrendering just three hits and three walks while fanning 23, prompting a late-May promotion. Miller picked up where he left off, tossing 10.2 more scoreless frames before giving up his first run June 15. That outing was the first of five straight in which Miller allowed a run. Through the break, Miller posted a 36.9 K%, but after, it was chopped in half at 18.3% even as he maintained his velocity throughout the entire campaign. The Nationals have fortified their bullpen, perhaps pushing Miller into seventh-inning duty.
Miller's 2016 was somewhat of a letdown after a surprisingly solid 2015 campaign. His momentum from the year prior landed him a full-time spot in the major league bullpen, although the success didn't carry over as his 5.35 ERA and 1.3 HR/9 in the first half of the season show. The 29-year-old then dealt with an oblique injury that sidelined him for two months, but once he was able to return, his numbers actually got worse. Similar to 2015, the right-hander displayed a strong strikeout ability (9.5 K/9), but his control was horrendous (4.2 BB/9). Miller's ability to consistently strike batters out is intriguing, but his flyball tendencies and lack of control got him sent off the 40-man roster in October, and he became a free agent. He'll compete for a bullpen spot with the Angels this spring after signing a minor league deal.
Signed on a minor league contract by the Rockies before the season, Miller was arguably the most pleasant surprise for Colorado in 2015. He bounced between Triple-A and the majors all season, yet produced a 1.38 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 14:2 K:BB prior to a few rough appearances in August. The 28-year-old finished the season with a 4.05 ERA, but his 0.96 WHIP and 3.45 K-to-walk ratio definitely opened some eyes in the Rockies organization. As long as Miller can replicate his strong 2015 campaign, he should be a major part of the Rockies' bullpen in 2016.
