Miller recalled for fifth stint with A's this season
By Willie Bans / Special to MLB.com
It's Miller's fifth stint with Oakland this year, after compiling a 2-1 record and 2.02 ERA over 35 2/3 innings in 25 relief appearances.
"He's a guy that's contributed over the course of a season," A's skipper Bob Melvin said.
Miller's last stint with Oakland began Aug. 24, and he pitched 2 1/3 scoreless innings in his only appearance before being optioned last Friday.
Miller's addition gives the A's five righties in the bullpen, compared to four lefties.
