3/26 Cubs release Miller
The Cubs released left-hander Trever Miller, who had a 5.40 ERA in eight Cactus League games. Miller, 38, had signed as a free agent in January. He has pitched for eight different teams, including the Cardinals, Blue Jays and Red Sox last year. This spring, he gave up five earned runs on seven hits over 8 1/3 innings, and all of those runs came in one outing, March 17, against the Rangers. With the move, Scott Maine and James Russell are the only left-handed relievers still in camp. The Cubs spring roster was at 40.
