Update: Andrew Miller's deal with the Red Sox is a major-league deal. He took a pay-cut from his 2011 salary as well, reports Alex Speier of WEEI. Miller is also out of options, meaning would need to clear waivers before being sent to the minors.
The Red Sox have re-signed Andrew Miller, according to Jon Paul Morosi of FoxSports. He's a 4th or 5th starter for Boston, depending on who else lands on the team (Wakefield rumors ahoy!). Miller, 26, made $1.3 million last year and maintained* a 5.54 ERA through 12 starts and several relief appearances:

Report: Red Sox to bring back Andrew Miller - Brian MacPherson
"Miller, who had a 5.54 ERA in 65 innings pitched with the Red Sox, had been a candidate to be non-tendered at the Dec. 12 deadline. Nine other Red Sox players -- most notably All-Star center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury -- are arbitration-eligible this winter."
- The Red Sox and Miller avoid arbitration, signing a 1-year deal.
Red Sox avoid arbitration with Andrew Miller | HardballTalk
"Miller stands fourth or fifth on Boston’s rotation depth chart as it’s currently comprised, but he won’t be assured anything entering spring training. Since this contract won’t be guaranteed — one-year contracts for arbitration-eligible players almost never are — he could well find himself off the roster if he struggles during March."
*maintained being a generous description.
