Miller, 27, revived his career as a reliever for the Red Sox with a 3.00 ERA and 34 Ks over 30.0 IPs. His use in the bullpen reaped 12 holds in addition to the appearances.
The veteran Cook, 33, was fresh off a loss against Baltimore last Wednesday. Cook, after only pitching 57.0 innings, could be moved as a nice depth arm for either a starting role or the bullpen.
The younger Doubront, 24, boast a line of 4.70 ERA, 119 Ks, and 52 BBs over 122.2 IPs and is in the middle of his first full year with the Red Sox. Doubront is only signed for this year for $484,000.
