Reds sign catcher Miller to Minor League deal

CINCINNATI -- The Reds announced that veteran catcher Corky Miller was signed to a Minor League contract and invited to big league camp at Spring Training. Miller, who will be 38 in March, had been contemplating retiring as a player.

"I was ready to go into coaching," said Miller, who attended Redsfest.

Miller is expected to spend the 2014 season at Triple-A Louisville and be a mentor to catching prospect Tucker Barnhart. Coaching with the Reds down the road is a possibility.

"He's a guy that hopefully has a future in the Reds organization for a long time," general manager Walt Jocketty said.
