The Philadelphia Phillies acquired utility infielder Brad Miller from the New York Yankees for cash on Thursday. The Yankees picked up Miller after he was designated for assignment by Cleveland in April. He hit .250 in 36 at-bats for the Indians this season but did not appear in the majors for New York, batting .294 with 10 home runs and 29 RBIs in 41 games for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Miller, 29, is expected to join the Phillies for the start of a three-game series in Atlanta on Friday night. The left-handed batter hit 30 home runs for the Tampa Bay Rays in 2016 but has 17 homers in 604 at-bats since then. Philadelphia will be his fifth franchise in the past two seasons.
