Andrew Miller likely to get a four-year deal

It is ‘increasingly likely’ that free-agent reliever Andrew Miller will get a four-year contract, according to FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi. It was already reported that he has received multiple three-year offers that are on the table. Last week, CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reported that he was reviving interest from 22 teams.

Miller is drawing interest as both a set-up-man and as a closer. He had an amazing 2014 season with both the Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles. With both teams, he earned a 2.02 ERA. Miller gave up 0.4 home runs per nine innings pitched. He also struck out 14.9 batters per nine innings pitched. He also accumulated a 0.802 WHIP.

Miller was a top prospect after he was drafted sixth overall back in the 2006 draft, but he had tons of injury issues and could never get a jump start as a starting pitcher. However, when he became a reliever in 2012, success came his way.
