This is another loss to the Houston Astros’ starting rotation. The team also lost Gerrit Cole to the New York Yankees.

Cole is the highest-paid pitcher in baseball history. He signed a nine-year, $345 million deal.

With the Reds, Miley is expected to be the franchise’s No. 4 starting pitcher. He joins a rotation that also includes Trevor Bauer, Luis Castillo, and Sonny Gray.

The 33-year-old Hammond, Louisiana native is joining his seventh MLB team. Besides playing for the Astros, he has also played for the Arizona Diamondbacks, Baltimore Orioles, Seattle Mariners, Milwaukee Brewers, and the Boston Red Sox.
