The Toronto Blue Jays have traded right-handed pitcher Justin Miller to the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for international cap space.

Miller had been at the Blue Jays’ alternate training site in Rochester, N.Y., after spending the previous two seasons with the Washington Nationals. He signed a minor-league deal with Toronto in December.

For his career, the 33-year-old reliever has made 150 appearances out of the bullpen, pitching to a 4.43 ERA.

The extra money received from the Reds may allow the Blue Jays to be more active in the international free agent market.
