Miller, 26, batted .243 with six homers, 51 RBIs, a .301 on-base percentage and .351 slugging percentage in 130 games with the Guardians last season. He primarily played first base but also made appearances at second base and third. The Brewers made room for Miller on the 40-man roster by designating catcher Mario Feliciano for assignment. Cleveland's decision to trade Miller comes after the Guardians signed first baseman Josh Bell to a two-year, $33 million contract. This represents a homecoming for Miller, who was born in the Milwaukee suburb of Mequon, Wisconsin. Miller's ability to play multiple infield positions could help the Brewers make up for the loss of utilityman Jace Peterson , who signed a $9.5 million, two-year deal with the Oakland Athletics this week.
