Sox reliever Miller out for rest of season

BOSTON -- Lefty reliever Andrew Miller did wind up needing left foot surgery, as was the expectation, and won't throw another pitch in 2013.

"He did have the foot repaired on Monday," said Red Sox manager John Farrell. "Surgery was performed to repair the ligament that he tore in the foot. He's in a non-weight-bearing situation for some time yet. This is a prolonged rehab for him."

There just won't be enough time for Miller to pitch again this season.

"No. That's ruled out," Farrell said. "We're looking at Spring Training."

Miller had been a force for the Red Sox this season, posting a 2.64 ERA and notching 48 strikeouts over 30 2/3 innings.
