Chicago Cubs & Seattle Mariners Complete Trade

The Chicago Cubs have enhanced their roster by acquiring pitcher Tyson Miller from the Seattle Mariners.

Miller, a right-handed pitcher, is noted for his impressive potential and versatility on the mound, which could prove instrumental in boosting the Cubs' pitching capabilities.

Adding Tyson Miller to their rotation provides the Cubs with additional strategic options, allowing for greater flexibility in game situations.

For his minor-league career, Miller has a 4.00 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, with 600 strikeouts over 611.2 innings and 167 appearances (102 starts).

Miller's fastball, averaging about 90 mph, ranks him among the slower pitchers in the league in terms of velocity. Nonetheless, it's his slider that truly impresses the Cubs.

This pitch elicits a 35.4% chase rate, which is one of the highest in MLB. While he does struggle with control at times, leading to walks, he generally manages to avoid getting hit hard this season.

His ability to perform various pitching roles adds a valuable layer of adaptability to the team, which could be crucial during the long and demanding season.

Over his four-year career, the 28-year-old holds a 5.64 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, with 31 strikeouts across 44.2 innings and 26 appearances.

The Cubs' management sees Miller as a significant addition who can contribute immediately, enhancing the team's prospects for success. Photo Credit: Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports
