Yet another catcher!
I can only find this in one place (scroll way down), but apparently the M’s have signed C Corky Miller as a six-year minor league free agent. Because, you know, they didn’t go through enough catchers last season.
Seriously, worse things have happened. Miller was once a decent prospect in the Reds’ org., though he’s a standard veteran minor league catcher at this point. Decent eye at the plate and some pop; he hit .229/.379/.465 at AAA Rochester last season. He’s 29 and owns a .251/.349/.433 line in just over 1,000 AAA at-bats, and his new, USSM-endorsed nickname is “Rene Rivera insurance.”
