It’s no longer #MillerTime.
The legendary left-handed relief pitcher announced his retirement after 16 seasons in the major leagues. Miller played for the Tigers, Marlins, Red Sox, Orioles, Yankees, Indians (now named Guardians) and Cardinals. It was from 2016-18 that Miller played on the Tribe.

“The list of people who took me aside, put their arm around me, made me laugh when I needed to, or taught me something is endless,” Miller wrote in a text message. “It’s safe to say I would have been faced with the next chapter much earlier on if it weren’t for them. As someone who thought their career was practically over in 2010, to be able to experience everything I did along the way is incredible. You shouldn’t ever hear complaints from me. It was a heck of a run.”
Miller had a career ERA of 4.03 and a career WHIP of 1.34 in 829 total innings pitched. This included 63 saves. In 547 relief appearances during the regular season, Miller pitched a 2.95 ERA with 724 strikeouts in 504 innings.
What was most memorable for Indians/Guardians fans was the 2016 playoffs when Miller was absolutely dominate in helping the team reach the World Series.
We here at CST wish Andrew Miller the best of luck in his future endeavors!
