Miller added to Rockies roster

Right-handed pitcher Matt Miller spent more than seven season in the minors, some of them in off-the-beaten-path independent leagues, before the Colorado Rockies called him up in late June. But after four appearances, he became a forgotten man again when he was sent back to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
The Rockies remembered Miller on Monday by adding him back to the 40-man Major League roster. Teams don't have to submit their rosters until Nov. 20, but the Rockies have been clearing and filling spots since the regular season ended.
Miller, who turns 32 next month, debuted with a scoreless inning at Pittsburgh on June 27 and posted a 2.08 ERA in 4 1/3 innings over his next four games. The Rockies have also added left-hander Alex Herrera, claimed off waivers from the Cleveland Indians.
Since season's end, Colorado also has outrighted from the roster right-handed pitcher Jose Jimenez, left-handed pitcher Jesus Sanchez, outfielder Chris Richard and catcher Bobby Estalella.
The moves leave the Rockies' roster at 39.
