Now that the Dodgers season is officially over, a lot of people are wondering how the team is going to look for Opening Day in 2024.
The roster has many questions regarding the pitching staff, and will likely have many changes with tons of players heading to free agency.
One of the most underrated components of the Dodgers bullpen is expected to receive a lot of interest from around the league as he is bound to hit free agency.
Shelby Miller signed with the Dodgers last offseason on a one-year deal. Miller came into the season hoping that he could pitch well enough this year to find himself a better deal. That is exactly what he did.
Although he fought through a couple of stints on the injured list, Miller put up some of the best stats of his career.
According to the Orange County Register’s J.P. Hoornstra, Miller will be a hot commodity for any teams looking for a bullpen pitcher this offseason.
“Miller was quietly excellent (36 games, 1.71 ERA, .905 WHIP) in a season interrupted by injury. The Dodgers would love him to repeat that effort in 2024, but he’ll have plenty of suitors eager to give him a raise on his $1.5 million base salary.”Via Orange County Register
While he may not have been the most important pitcher on the team, Miller could become a key piece for someone else’s offseason plans.
Only time will tell if the Dodgers value Miller enough to give him a new contract, or if they decide to let him walk and earn a larger payday elsewhere.
