CINCINNATI -- Popular backup catcher Corky Miller became a free agent Wednesday, when he refused an outright assignment. But that doesn't mean Miller's stint with the organization is over. The veteran was re-signed to a Minor League contract and was invited to Spring Training as a non-roster player. The Reds now have 32 players on their 40-man roster.
In 32 games with the Reds this season, Miller batted .243 with two home runs and nine RBIs. He spent a majority of the season at Triple-A Louisville. Miller is known more for his defense and calling games, and Reds pitchers had a team-best 2.86 ERA in the games he caught.
