The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reports that the Brewers are expected to sign pitcher Shelby Miller to a minor league contract.
Miller, 28, was released by the Rangers earlier this month after allowing 46 runs (42 earned) on 58 hits and 29 walks with 30 strikeouts across 44 innings of work. Miller made eight starts and 11 relief appearances.
Prior to 2019, Miller spent three injury-plagued and unproductive seasons with the Diamondbacks, where he posted an aggregate 6.35 ERA in 139 innings. The Brewers are hoping Miller can rebound, but the odds seem long.
Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. scaled the center field fence to rob Padres shortstop Luis Urías of a solo home run in the fourth inning of Sunday afternoon’s game. Urías was trying to take advantage of a 0-1 slider from Ryan Brasier. Had Bradley not made the grab, the Padres’ lead would have been extended to 4-1.
Unfortunately for the Red Sox, they weren’t able to take advantage of Bradley’s effort, dropping Sunday’s contest 3-1. They still won the series against the Padres, however. The Sox will continue their road trip for two games against the Rockies followed by three versus the Angels.
