Veteran Aide Andreas Mueller announced his retirement from Major League Baseball (MLB) after 16 seasons. The southpaw, who spent the last three seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals, was a free agent in his offseason.
He texted Derrick Goold at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, who reported the news.
“The list of people who have taken me aside, put their arm around me, made me laugh when I needed to, or taught me something is endless.” Miller wrote in a text message. “It’s safe to say I would have been faced with the next chapter much sooner if it weren’t for them. As someone who thought their career was practically over in 2010, it’s incredible to be able to witness everything I’ve done along the way. You should never hear complaints from me. It was a bloody run.”
“Miller changed the game” – Adam Wainwright
Miller had completed exceptionally valuable postseason runs with the Orioles, Yankees, Guardians, and Cardinals. Overall, he went through 38 2/3 playoff innings in 29 appearances and hit 54 batters against just 11 unintended walks with a .93 ERA.
Responding to that decision was Miller, 34, the Cardinals’ veteran starter Adam Wainwright jumped massive praise for the former’s glorious career.
“He changed the game and he took back that relieving role when it started, guys who could go two, three innings — and he was the guy who did it in the postseason‘ said Adam Wainwright. “I appreciate what he did for the entire baseball game. It’s kind of mind blowing the hours this guy has put into the union over the past few years. He may be retiring and that means he’s still put in 16 hours a day on the phone all this off-season for us on who’s next – that means a lot.”
