Dodgers come to terms with RHP Justin Miller on a minor-league deal

Miller_240 Right-hander Justin Miller has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Dodgers, according to a source with knowledge of the situation who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The deal includes an invitation to spring training.

A 32-year-old, heavily tattooed journeyman who has played for three teams over six seasons, Miller was 3-3 with a 3.18 earned-run average in 44 appearances for the San Francisco Giants last season. The Torrance native had a 1.83 ERA in 39 appearances through Aug. 20.

Miller, who shouldn't be confused with the Dodgers pitching prospect with the same name, has a career record of 24-14 with a 4.84 ERA.

If Miller makes the Dodgers' major-league roster, he will earn a base salary of $850,000 and can make an additional $50,000 in incentives.
