Former Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Justin Miller was found dead in his Palm Harbor, Fla., home at the age of 35 Wednesday night, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Miller spent time with the Blue Jays in 2002, 2004 and 2005. He played professional baseball for 15 years, most recently for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2010.

A spokesperson for the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said authorities are investigating, but have not yet determined a cause of death.

Miller leaves behind his wife, Jessica, and their two sons, Joseph, 18, and Johnnie, 7.

“He was gifted at putting things in a language that kids could understand. That was something he was really proud of,” Jessica told the Times.
