Miller pitched for seven years in the majors, compiling a 23-17 record with a 3.23 ERA and 22 saves. A relief specialist, Miller made just one start in his career and pitched over 100 innings just once, in 1977, a year he split between the Baltimore Orioles and California Angels. He won six games that year as well, which was a career-high that he also matched in his rookie season (1975) for Baltimore and again in 1978 for the Angels. Miller pitched from 1975-1981 and played for the New York Mets and Toronto Blue Jays in addition to California and Baltimore.
Miller worked for 28 years as a coach and instructor following his playing career.
On July 24, 1975 he surrendered a home run to Hank Aaron during a game in Baltimore. It was the 743rd home run of Aaron’s storied career.
