The Chicago Cubs have signed lefty Trever Miller to a minor league deal, according to Jayson Stark. The deal is worth $800 thousand if he makes the big leagues.
Miller, 38, has 13 seasons under his belt and has played with 8 different clubs, and Stark notes that the Cubs would be his ninth if he makes their bullpen. He has a career 4.18 ERA and if you're into value over time, has earned three wins above replacement since 1996.
Miller only pitched 21 innings last season.
