YearComment
2012 Trever Miller pitched for three teams in 2011, making 48 appearances but logging just 21-1/3 innings, but being left-handed has its perks: don't be surprised if he finds work again, despite recent events.
2011 In his own way, Miller has reached the pinnacle of achievement for his particular pitching sub-species. The lefty side-armer has spent two years as a LOOGY in Tony La Russa’s pen, which must make him akin to being Sergeant Major of the Army among lefty relievers. LOOGY Sergeant of the Majors, perhaps? In any case, Miller once again cut down any and all lefty batters who dared to eyeball him, holding them to a .203/.294/.257 line, and by appearing in more than 45 games his contract vested, ensuring that he’d keep his place at the top of the lefty-specialist pyramid for at least another year.
2010 In studied contrast to the cherubic Dennys Reyes, Miller is the older, angular, more established southpaw and veteran of postseasons past, and his destiny just as certainly involved his being a Cardinal someday. Technically proficient and born for this work with his sidearm-scything of southpaws, Miller was tasked with protecting eighth-inning leads where Reyes generally got used earlier and in tighter situations, down or up on the scoreboard. That's the Cards' pen for you, with enough subspecialization among specialists that Darwin could have written about them as easily as so many finches' beaks.
2009 Sometimes it's hard to figure out just what makes a LOOGY. Just as Walter Sobchak can get you a toe by three o'clock, we can find you a lefty with an upper-80s sinker and a decent slider. Maybe it's a release-point thing, maybe it's a movement thing, and maybe it just doesn't matter. Miller gets left-handers out, and if that's all you expect from him, you won't be disappointed. The Rays declined his $2 million dollar option for '09, but the Cardinals were more than happy to pay the same price for his services.
2008 It's been a pretty good second act for Miller, who after the 2000 season was cut loose by the Dodgers, then his fourth organization in five years. He had a 5.43 ERA in 162 major league innings at that point, a 10.47 mark in 2000, and seemed like a good candidate for law school. After two more organizations over the next two years, Miller popped up in Toronto at the beginning of 2003 and hasn't looked back, posting a 3.93 ERA in 346 appearances as a lefty specialist for the Jays, Rays, and 'Stros. There are hundreds of pitchers in this book who have some dismissive comment beneath their statistics; a handful of them will have Miller's future.
2007 Miller is a LOOGY and nothing more. He missed a month in early 2006 with an elbow sprain, but, once activated, went right back to mowing down lefties in short stints. He`s not exciting, but he`s effective. Given that he`s only 33, he still gets carded at the LOOGY Bar and Grill.
2006 `It`s still the same old story, a fight for love and glory, a case of do or die...` Sorry, Bogie, but `As Time Goes By` doesn`t have a verse that applies to situational lefties with control problems, because despite the fondest wishes of CYA-strategizing managers everywhere, wild southpaw relievers never do or die with the lefty batter you want them to. That`s why one-batter strategies don`t amount to a hill of beans. Miller more than doubled his unintentional walk rate from 2004, and was non-tendered. Here`s looking at you, kid.
2005 Miller's been good for a couple of years. Combine Miller, Baez and Carter with real gains by Colome and Harper, let someone like Orvella step up, and this could be a really, really good bullpen. Miller's the situational lefty of the group, and while he isn't as automatic as a Ray King or B.J. Ryan, he's a fine option.
2004 Was it a successful year? Miller did stay up all season, and he did accrue service time. But as a lefty situational artist, he managed to give up six bombs to lefties, and may be best suited to pitching exclusively from the stretch. He's on the Jamie Walker career path, not quite the walk of the damned, but trying to make a living as a non-contender's situational lefty-especially after earning a guaranteed contract as part of a mini-exodus of Jays headed to Tampa.
2001 The fact that Trever Miller isn't very good finally caught up to him after a couple of decent seasons in low-leverage relief. He's not good enough against left-handed hitters to be a specialist, so that leaves mop-up work...or attempts at starting. The Dodgers stuck Miller in the Albuquerque rotation after the Phillies released him, and he pitched well in nine starts. He's right about where Brian Bohanon was at 28.
2000 One of the myths of left-handed relief specialists is that they face left-handed hitters the majority of the time. Miller was mildly effective against left-handed hitters (.237/.363/.408), but right-handed hitters lit him up for a .339 average with power, and he faced them 61% of the time. This is about as good as he’s going to get, and it’s not good enough.
1999 He’s not supremely talented, but he brings certain talents that can be exploited in middle relief. He throws a good sinker and gets doubleplay balls, and allowed just 4 of 22 inherited runners to score. He cuts off the running game, and he was exceptional against left-handers (.217 with no power). With Magnante on his way out, Miller should have some security.
1998 Since adding the slider in ’95, Miller has been slightly more effective. Stuck in the Astros’ chain, that means he’s bound to be drowned by the coming A-ball wave.
1997 The Tigers are looking at Miller to be the token lefty in their rotation next year, but I’m skeptical about his chances. He has neither great control nor high K rates, and he got the snot beaten out of him with the Tigers in September. I wouldn’t give up on any 24-year-old left-hander, but Miller is at least a year or two away.
1996  Primary positive is his ability to keep the ball in the park, a nice trait for a Tiger pitcher. Strikeouts came back a little this year, walks stayed down. Just 23, and if he continues to improve, will have a career. Pitchers like this have to be very good to get a shot, though, since thet don't impress the radar guns.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-08-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Mr. Slightly Above Average at Mostly Everything (Brett Jackson) will be up this year??
(moehk21 from NYC)
That, or Jim Hendry will release him to make room for the recently released Trever Miller. All joking aside, Jackson needs to be added to the 40 man roster first before he can be called up but I see several candidates that could be released to make room for him. (Jason Collette)
2008-10-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)Does David Price get the Goose Gossage treatment the rest of the way for the Rays after the 2 1/3 he pitched last night? The more he pitches, the better off the Rays are, in my opinion.
(Tim from Sonoma, CA)
I can't see Maddon relying exclusively on him the rest of the way when Balfour looked good in Game One and Howell is rested too. Maddon seems determined to mix and match in ways that might keep the Phillies unsettled (the infield shift on Utley for example, or the RF "platoon"). Throwing different looks at their lefty hitters is likely on the menu, so I wouldn't be surprised if we see more of Howell and even Trever Miller in Game Three. (Jay Jaffe)

2008-10-22 16:30:00World Series Game One"jessehoffins (Swarthmore, PA): Joe- As to Howard's placement in the lineup, you really think pushing him back to eighth makes sense against a pitcher that almost never makes it past the 6th anyway? I understand his awful platoons, but Charlie Manuel has to believe that getting him one extra at bat late in a game is worth it. "

An at-bat that, if it means anything, will probably come against J.P. Howell, or David Price, or Trever Miller, all of whom Howard can't hit.

He's a platoon player.
