Lefthander Trever Miller, who pitched at the end of last season for the Boston Red Sox, has signed a minor league contract with the Cubs with an invitation to spring training. Miller, 38, pitched for the St. Louis Cardinals, Toronto Blue Jays and Red Sox last season. Miller has pitched for eight major league teams with a career 4.18 ERA. He would be paid $800,000 if he makes the major league club, according to ESPN.
Miller will be among 21 non-roster invitees to spring training, which opens Feb. 18 when pitchers and catchers report to Mesa, AZ. Workouts will begin the next day. The team’s first full workout will be Feb. 24.
Along with Miller, lefthander Chris Rusin and nine righties will be invited. The catchers include Michael Brenly, 25, son of team broadcast analyst Bob Brenly; and Jason Jaramillo and Blake Lalli.
Five infielders and four outfielders also will be among the invitees.
