Acquired LHP Andrew Miller from the Red Sox in exchange for LHP Eduardo Rodriguez. [7/31] When Miller was drafted, by the Tigers back in 2006, the belief was he would become an impact arm. He has, just not in the expected capacity. Over the past several seasons in Boston, Miller has developed into a shutdown reliever, one capable of retiring lefties and righties alike. Of course he never had trouble missing bats with his mid-90s fastball and slider, but his improved control has turned him into a force. Adding Miller, a free agent at season's end, to Zach Britton and Darren O'Day gives Buck Showalter three terrific late-inning relievers to turn and, by extension, the Orioles one of the better back-ends in the AL. —R.J. Anderson
