Per the San Francisco Chronicle, Miller said that although the Giants “offered him a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training, he has big-league offers from two other clubs.”
The Yankees signed Miller in March and invited him to big-league spring training as the 32-year-old moved to the bullpen full-time for the first time in his career.
Bu he utilized the opt-out clause in his Yankees minor-league contract in June, then promptly signed a minor-league deal with the Giants. Miller made 27 appearances for Triple-A Sacramento, posting a 3.62 ERA. He went on to make four big-league appearances with the Giants this season, going 0-1 with a 6.43 ERA.

Before leaving the Yankees organization, Miller had nothing but nice things to say about the team. Per NJ Advance Media’s Brendan Kuty:
“Right now,” he said April 30. “I’m liking it here and I want to try to make this Yankees team before anything else, and we’ll see what happens. … I like the organization and the way it’s run and the guys so far. It’s been good. I’m pitching good. Just have to keep it up. Even if I’m pitching this well throughout the year, I still might not get that call. So, it’s nice to have those options and to be able to possibly take an opt out, go somewhere else and get a new job with another team.”
