BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 After Tommy John surgery caused him to miss the entire 2012 campaign, hard-throwing reliever Justin Miller is eyeing an early-2013 return and could factor into the Rangers bullpen mix.
2012 Added to the 40-man roster in the offseason, righty reliever Justin Miller can dial up a plus fastball in the mid-90s and mix in a good, hard slider with some late tilt.
