The Arizona Diamondbacks didn't tender contracts to right-handers Shelby Miller and Brad Boxberger or infielder Chris Owings, the team announced Friday.

The decision will allow all three players to become free agents.

Miller didn't pan out with the Diamondbacks after being part of a Dec. 2015 trade with Atlanta in which Arizona sent 2015 No. 1 overall pick Dansby Swanson to the Braves as part of the deal.

Miller, 28, appeared in just 29 games (28 starts) in three seasons due to injuries and underwent Tommy John surgery in 2017. He was 5-18 with a 6.35 ERA, including an 0-4 mark and 10.69 ERA in five 2018 appearances (four starts).

Miller is 37-53 with a 3.83 ERA in 131 appearances (124 starts) over seven seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals (2012-14), Atlanta Braves (2015) and Diamondbacks.

Boxberger, 30, recorded 32 saves for the Diamondbacks last season while going 3-7 with a 4.39 ERA. Overall, he is 20-27 with a 3.42 ERA and 76 saves with the San Diego Padres (2012-13), Tampa Bay Rays (2014-17) and Diamondbacks.

Owings, 27, batted a career-low .206 last season with four homers and 22 RBIs in 106 games. He played in 580 games in six seasons with Arizona and batted. 250 with 31 homers and 196 RBIs.
