MLB: Revival? Three clubs are interested in a former All Star pitcher who has not stood out since 2015

Veteran right-hander Shelby Miller is a free agent which apparently intrigues some teams in the league. She tells journalist Susan Slusser of The San Francisco Chronicle that the The Giants offered him a minor league contract with an invite to spring training, but he has major league offers from two more clubs..

At first glance, it may seem strange that Miller is so popular, since he hasn’t really been an effective major leaguer since 2015. Once one of the most touted prospects in the gameMiller seemed to be cementing himself as a major league starter with the Cardinals from 2012 to 2014:

He left for Atlanta in the Jason Heyward trade and had another strong season in 2015. However, after being traded to the Diamondbacks for three players, including Dansby Swanson, things went wrong for him. He posted a 6.15 ERA with the Snakes in 2016 and then only posted 38 combined innings over the next two seasons due to injuries.

Since then, Miller has gradually moved into more relief work, with very impressive results in the minors. In 2021, he pitched at Triple-A while in the Cubs and Pirates system, pitching 24 1/3 innings with a 2.96 ERA, 37.8% strikeout rate and 9.2% walk rate. He made brief Major League appearances with both clubs, but struggled to post a 9.24 ERA in 13 games.

I am a fan of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover big events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), important players’ signatures. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as an amateur. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but baseball is in my veins. Graduated in Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS). , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I arrived at El Debate as a journalist reporter and it took almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to radio, providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and a few days later, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
