Orioles acquire left-handed reliever Andrew Miller from Red Sox

Package him and Maybin for Cabrera?

The O’s acquired left-handed reliever Andrew Miller from the Boston Red Sox, a deal that adds a solid piece to the back end of the bullpen. But it also cost them one of their top pitching prospects in left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez..

A free agent at season’s end, Miller has a 2.34 ERA and has struck out 69 in 42 1/3 innings this season. The 29-year-old has held righties to a .180./.279/.258 line and lefties to a .150/.203/.217 line…

Rodriguez missed more than a month with a knee sprain sustained while lifting weights earlier this season, and has pitched to a 4.79 ERA at Double-A Bowie. There were some internal questions about his work ethic in coming back from the injury, but Rodriguez is still a young, inexpensive left-handed pitcher with a lot of upside and has been one of the youngest players invited to big league camp the past two seasons.

A good player but seems a big price to give up for a couple of months. Now the bullpen has four lefties and there are 13 pitchers on the team. Rodriguez was worth hanging onto.

The top four pitching prospects for Baltimore:
Dylan Bundy - recovering from Tommy John, getting hit around in A ball
Hunter Harvey - top pick last year, shut down with flexor mass issue
Kevin Gaussman - pitching well at the major league level
Rodriguez - gone
