UPDATE as of 6:25 p.m. Eastern Time: Shelby Miller, the right-handed reliever, has secured a one-year contract with the Detroit Tigers, valued at over $3 million. The Tigers have officially confirmed the signing, disclosing that the deal includes a guaranteed $3 million for the upcoming season. Additionally, there is a team option for the year 2025, with a value of $4.25 million, along with a $250,000 buyout.

Having had a successful season with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2023, Miller contributed to the team’s victory in the National League West, achieving a notable record of 3-0 with a 1.71 ERA across 36 games, as reported by Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press.

Shelby Miller, now 33 years old, previously served as a prominent starting pitcher in the National League, notably winning 15 games for the St. Louis Cardinals in 2013. However, his subsequent years saw a decline in performance and injury challenges. Following his time in St. Louis, Miller had stints with Atlanta, where he went 6-17, and Arizona, where he recorded a 3-12 record in 2016. His appearances were limited in the following years, with only four in 2017, five in 2018, and 19 in 2019. Opting out of the COVID-19 affected 2020 season, Miller made a total of 17 appearances between 2021 and 2022.
