Scott Maine Fighting For the Set-up Spot for the Cubs

Scott Maine and John Gaub would appear to be contenders as well but have longer odds for the role, but the Cubs will take a long look all spring at 38-year-old veteran Trever Miller, who pitched last season with St. Louis, Toronto and Boston.

Miller was traded in July by the Cardinals to Toronto. The Blue Jays released him before the Red Sox picked him up. Miller said he would have made the Red Sox' postseason roster, but Boston collapsed down the stretch. However, he will get a World Series ring from the world-champion Cardinals.

“I was pulling for those guys, especially when I'm sitting at home,” Miller said. “Three years with a team is a long time, especially in my role. I usually don't get to stick around that long. I loved all those guys there.”
