The Chicago Cubs added veteran left-handed reliever Trever Miller to their eclectic pitching mix Monday, signing him to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training.
Miller, 38, pitched for three teams last season, including Theo Epsteinís Boston Red Sox at the end. Epstein is now with the Cubs and will pay Miller a reported $800,000, according to ESPN.
Epstein has signed a mix of veteran pitchers and traded for several young ones. One of those trades sent bullpen lefty Sean Marshall to the Cincinnati Reds and the signing of Miller could help offset the loss.
The Cubs will be the ninth major-league team for Miller, who has become a situational left-hander in recent years.
