Miller, 29, played in 13 games for Cleveland this season, hitting .250 (9-for-36) with 4R, 3 doubles, 1HR, 4RBI, 4BB and 1SB. The left-handed hitter made all 13 appearances (12 starts) at second base before being designated for assignment on 4/15 and electing free agency on 4/17.
He is a career .240 hitter (542-for-2,263) with 273R, 106 doubles, 25 triples, 76HR, 272RBI and 241BB in 693 games across seven Major League seasons with Seattle (2013-15), Tampa Bay (2016-18), Milwaukee (2018) and Cleveland (2019).
The Orlando, Fla., native has made a majority of his career starts at shortstop (375G/350GS) but has started at every infield and outfield spot.
He was originally chosen by the Mariners in the second round of the 2011 First-Year Player Draft out of Clemson University.
