Braves SP Shelby Miller allows one run in Thursday's loss
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/29/15) Despite only surrendering one run during Thursday's game against the Giants, Braves pitcher Shelby Miller received a loss for his effort.
Miller (5-2) tossed seven solid innings and allowed one run on five hits during the 7-0 loss. He did not walk a batter and struck out one, which tied his season low. His lone mistake was giving up a home run to Brandon Belt in the sixth inning. It was the first home run hit off Miller since April 30.
"Tough hit to give up at that point of the ballgame. I can't do that right there," Miller said. "I'm taking the blame on that loss."
The quality start was his eighth in a row. Miller has allowed a total of four runs in his last five starts. His next expected start is scheduled for Tuesday at Arizona.
Braves pitcher Shelby Miller strikes out five in no-decision
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/23/15) Braves pitcher Shelby Miller allowed two runs on seven hits in six innings of work in Atlanta's 3-2 win over the Brewers on Saturday in 11 innings, but did not factor into a decision.
Miller had just two issues in the game, one coming in the first inning. After allowing a leadoff double to Carlos Gomez, Miller gave up a single to Ryan Braun to drive home a run. Then in the fourth, Miller put runners on first and second with two outs before allowing an RBI single to Martin Maldonado. It was Miller's shortest outing in his last five appearances.
"Did I have my best stuff today? No," Miller said to 680 The Fan. "But my teammates did a good job hanging in there with me, making some good plays."
Miller, who remains 5-1, moved his ERA to 1.50 in 60 innings of work this season. He will look to get back on track Thursday against the Giants.
Braves SP Miller looks to continue hot streak in start against Brewers
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(5/23/15) Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller has been on fire to start the season.
Miller (5-1) will get the start on Saturday against the Brewers, where he will look to extend his excellent start to the season.
Through eight starts, Miller has a 1.33 ERA.
Shelby Miller's promising start has piqued interest of opposing teams
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) Thanks to a strong start to the season, teams have begun to eye Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller as a potential trade target, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
However, Heyman writes it is hard to see the Braves moving Miller since he is still under team control through 2018.
The right-hander, who was acquired in an offseason trade with St. Louis, is coming off a two-hit shutout against the Marlins. He is 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA through eight starts.
Braves starter Shelby Miller loses no-hitter with two outs in ninth inning
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/17/15) Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller (5-1) did not allow a hit through 8 2/3 innings Sunday before the Marlins' Justin Bour smacked a single up the middle with two outs in the ninth to ruin the no-hit bid.
"He put a good swing on it," Miller said. "I wish it would have finished differently."
Miller had faced the minimum before Bour's hit. The right hander had walked Marcell Ozuna to lead off the second inning, but the centerfielder was erased on a double play.
"Obviously things didn't finish as we wanted to, but at the same time we got a sweep," Miller said. "In the end I had a lot of fun."
It appeared that the Marlins had a hit in the third inning when pitcher Henderson Alvarez initally beat out an infield chopper, but the call was overturned by replay.
Dee Gordon followed Bour with an infield hit before Miller got the final out -- ending the day with a two-hit shutout victory.
Miller fanned four and tossed 94 pitches in the gem.
In his last three starts, Miller has allowed one run in 25 innings (0.36 ERA).
The last Braves' no-hitter was in April 1994 when Kent Mercker threw one in Los Angeles against the Dodgers.
Miller's next turn in the rotation is set for Saturday against the Brewers.
|2014 summary: After a bumpy finish to a mostly dominant rookie season, Shelby Miller couldn't get out of that rut at the start of 2014, becoming little more than waiver fodder in Fantasy after compiling a 4.29 ERA in his first 19 starts. But he began to turn things around in late July, finishing with a 2.96 ERA and 0.96 WHIP over his final 12.|
Playing time status: Especially since he's not known to be the most coachable player, the Cardinals showed remarkable restraint with Miller, letting him work through his issues in the majors rather than send him to the minors, and finally got through to him that his secondary stuff -- specifically, his curveball -- is too good not to use. Of course, after all that, they decided to make him someone else's headache, trading him to the Braves in the offseason.
2015 outlook: The Braves will sink or swim with Miller in 2015, so his value depends largely on how much he retains from those last 12 starts. More likely than not, the talent will win out here -- Miller was long considered one of the game's top pitching prospects -- and give him somewhere between his rookie and sophomore numbers, perhaps with more innings. You won't have to pay as much for him this year as last year, but he'll probably go among the top 60 starting pitchers.
