Former Dodgers Reliever Traded to NL Central Squad

Former Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Tyson Miller is making his way back to the midwest. As first reported by ESPN’s Jeff Passan, the Chicago Cubs acquired Miller from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for infielder Jake Slaughter.

Passan reported on the trade via Twitter/X on Monday. The deal became official Tuesday.

Miller, 28, will join his fifth team in the span of a year. The California native will also return to the team that took him in the fourth round of the 2016 draft.

The right-handed reliever spent two stints with the Dodgers in 2023. The first came in July, after the Dodgers acquired him from the Milwaukee Brewers for cash. Miller appeared in one big league game and two with Triple-A Oklahoma City before being designated for assignment Aug. 2.

The Dodgers weren’t done. They claimed Miller off waivers Aug. 27 after a brief stint with the New York Mets. In his second go-around, he appeared in one game and pitched two scoreless innings. The next day, he was once again designated for assignment. However, Miller finished the season with the Dodgers’ organization in Triple-A. Ultimately, Miller elected free agency in early October.

Thus far in 2024, Miler has surrendered four runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out 12 batters over 11.2 innings off the bullpen. He will immediately join the big-league club.
