Shelby Miller turns in strong start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2014) Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller turned in a strong start Friday against the Cubs.

Miller allowed two runs on four hits over seven innings. He struck out three and walked two during the outing. Home runs proved to be the main issue for Miller. In the second, he allowed a solo shot against Luis Valbuena. He was able to settle in over the next four innings, not allowing a run. That streak was erased in the seventh, when Jorge Soler led off the inning with a solo blast. Miller wound up throwing 93 pitches during the outing. 

Miller left with the game tied, picking up the no-decision. He’ll take on the Pirates in his next start. 


Shelby Miller tosses quality start against Phillies


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller picked up a quality start Saturday against the Phillies.

Miller allowed three runs on five hits over six innings. He struck out three and walked two during the outing. Miller got through the first three innings without any issues. He ran into some trouble in the fourth. With one out, Miller gave up two singles and a two-run double to three consecutive batters. Miller gave up another run on a solo home run to open the sixth inning. 

The Phillies managed to mount a comeback, giving Miller a no-decision. He’ll take on the Cubs in his next start. 


Cardinals will flip Shelby Miller, Adam Wainwright


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) The Cardinals will flip Shelby Miller and Adam Wainwright following Thursday's off day, according to MLB.com.

Miller was set to start Friday, but will be moved to Saturday. Wainwright will now pitch Friday instead of Saturday. 


Shelby Miller walks six in no-decision vs. Padres


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller didn't factor into the decision Saturday, giving up four earned runs on four hits and six walks in six innings and striking out five in his team's 9-5 loss to the Padres.

Miller had been doing a better job with his control in recent starts, walking only three batters in his last four outings combined. He set a season-high in walks Saturday but was still in line for a win until the bullpen surrendered a grand slam in the seventh inning. Miller owns a 4.25 ERA and 95:64 K:BB ratio in 139 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Phillies Friday.


Shelby Miller gives up five runs in loss vs. Marlins


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller suffered a loss Monday, allowing five earned runs on eight hits and two walks in five innings and striking out five in his team's 6-5 defeat against the Marlins.

Miller (8-9) gave up his first three runs on two home runs by Giancarlo Stanton in the first and third innings. He then surrendered two more runs on three hits in the fourth. Miller had given up a total of five earned runs in 18 2/3 innings over his previous three starts before Monday's clunker. He owns a 4.17 ERA and 90:58 K:BB ratio in 133 2/3 innings, and he's scheduled to face the Padres Saturday.


Shelby Miller allows one run in no-decision vs. Red Sox


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller didn't factor into the decision Wednesday, giving up one earned run on four hits and one walk in seven innings and striking out four in his team's 2-1 loss to the Red Sox.

Miller hasn't given up more than two earned runs in any of his last three starts, but Wednesday's outing was his first time during that stretch without serving up a home run. He owns a 3.99 ERA and 85:56 K:BB ratio in 128 2/3 innings. Miller is slated to face the Marlins Monday.


Shelby Miller pitches six strong in win over Padres


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Cardinals starting pitcher Shelby Miller (8-8) tossed a quality start and got back to .500, leading his team past the Padres on Thursday. The right-hander permitted two runs on three hits and no walks while striking out five over six innings of a 6-2 victory. Home runs to Jed Gyorko and Wil Venable proved to be the only damage.

Over his last two starts covering 11 2/3 innings, Miller has allowed only four earned runs. He owns a 4.14 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP over 121 2/3 innings. He will make his next start Wednesday at home against Boston.

Shelby Miller settles for no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) Cardinals starting pitcher Shelby Miller was unable to factor into the decision Saturday afternoon against the Cubs at Wrigley Field. The right-hander permitted two runs on three hits and no walks while striking out three over 5 2/3 innings of a 6-3 victory.

Miller has not won a decision since June 7 against Toronto. He owns a 4.20 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP over 115 2/3 innings of work. He will look to get back to his winning ways Thursday in San Diego.

Why would now be different for Shelby Miller?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/23/2014) The reports of Shelby Miller moving back to the Cardinals rotation have Fantasy owners taking another look at the 23-year-old right-hander. Don't even try to deny it. We keep track of these things.

During his time out of the rotation, he made one relief appearance, and it was shaky. He allowed two hits and one walk in a scoreless inning of work.

Same old Miller? That's the impression I got.

If he's been working on anything in the 13 days since his last start, he hasn't shown it in a game yet. The only reason the Cardinals gave for his banishment to the bullpen was a need for extra rest, so I'm not expecting to see anything different from Miller. And considering he wasn't any good at the start of the season, when he was as rested as he could possibly be, I don't expect the results to change either.

Someone somewhere down the line is going to get through to Miller someday, but I'll opt for Jacob deGrom, Rubby De La Rosa, Danny Duffy or Wade Miley off the waiver wire instead. The signs of progress are much clearer for them.


Shelby Miller set to rejoin rotation Saturday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) Cardinals starting pitcher Shelby Miller is returning to the rotation Saturday against the Cubs, according to MLB.com. Miller made one relief appearance, allowing two hits and one walk over a scoreless innings Sunday against the Dodgers.

Cardinals considering Shelby Miller for Saturday start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) The Cardinals are considering Shelby Miller for a start Saturday, according to MLB.com.

Miller has been used out of the bullpen recently, but the move could be temporary. The team will consider Miller for a start Saturday against the Cubs. The team is trying to figure out whether they want to start Carlos Martinez on five days' rest, or give Miller the start. Miller has a 4.25 ERA over 110 innings.


Cardinals still weighing their rotation options for Wednesday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) The Cardinals have yet to reveal their for Wednesday, and although MLB.com suggested that Shelby Miller could make the start, the right-hander made a relief appearance against the Dodgers Sunday night.

Miller issued one walk and allowed two hits in a scoreless inning of work, and is now unlikely to start with only two days of rest.

Lance Lynn remains another option, considering he would be on normal rest. Lynn started the first game after the All-Star break. He is 11-6 with a 3.13 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP over 20 starts (120 2/3 innings).


Shelby Miller moving to the bullpen...for now


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/18/2014) Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller will move to the bullpen for now, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

It's unclear how long Miller will pitch out of the pen. He could return to the rotation Wednesday, but that's not certain at this time. Manager Mike Matheny indicated that the move is being made in order to give Miller extra rest. 

Over 109 innings, Miller has a 4.29 ERA. 


Shelby Miller struggles with control Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller had a rough start Thursday against the Pirates.

Miller allowed four runs on five hits over five innings. He had issues with his command, walking four hitters. He struck out just one during the outing. After Russell Martin notched a run against Miller in the first, he seemed to settle in for a few innings. In the fifth, however, he ran into trouble. Miller walked two hitters early, and wouldn’t get out of the inning unscathed. With two outs, Andrew McCutchen singled in a run and Neil Walker doubled home two runs. Miller issued another walk before finally getting out of the inning. He threw 92 pitches during the start. 

The loss dropped Miller to 7-8 on the year. His next start is undetermined at this point due to the upcoming All-Star Game. 


Shelby Miller gives up three runs in no-decision Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller wasn't a factor in the decision Saturday, surrendering three earned runs on nine hits and one walk in 5 1/3 innings while striking out two in his team's 6-5 loss to the Marlins.

Miller hasn't managed a win in any of his last five starts but came close Saturday, when he gave up a run in the first inning but watched his offense deliver him a 5-1 lead by the fourth. He was charged two more runs on a sixth-inning home run surrendered by the bullpen, and the bullpen cost him the win when the Marlins took the lead in the ninth. Miller owns a 4.15 ERA and 72:50 K:BB ratio in 104 innings. He's scheduled to square off with the Pirates Thursday.


Shelby Miller surrenders six runs in loss vs. Dodgers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller struggled in a loss Sunday, giving up six earned runs on seven hits and three walks in five innings while striking out four in his team's 6-0 defeat against the Dodgers.

Miller (7-7) put together three scoreless innings before the Dodgers scored two in the fourth. After they added another in the fifth, the Cardinals starter surrendered a three-run home run later in the fifth, putting the final nail in the coffin of the ugly performance. He owns a 4.10 ERA and 70:49 K:BB ratio in 98 2/3 innings. Miller is in line to face the Marlins Saturday.


Shelby Miller set to make start Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller will make his start Sunday against the Dodgers, after leaving his last outing with a back injury, MLB.com reports.

Miller will take the mound as scheduled, however the team is expected to recall a pitcher up to possibly piggyback Miller, if he can't pitch too deep into the game. 


Cardinals still waiting to confirm Shelby Miller for Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) The Cardinals are cautiously optimistic that Shelby Miller will be able to return to the mound Sunday against the Dodgers, but a final decision will likely wait until Saturday.

Miller tossed a bullpen session Friday in Los Angeles, and did not report any issues with the back injury that forced him out of his last outing. Still, the injury is not completely gone, which is why manager Mike Matheny told MLB.com he will wait to see how Miller responds Saturday before confirming him for the start Sunday.

"We've been very optimistic as to how he's progressing, but we'll continue to watch," Matheny said. "We're going to need him to feel pretty good in order to move in the direction that we're going to be able to have him start. We'll just see what he says, see how that's interpreted by the medical team, and then make a decision."


Enough is enough with Shelby Miller


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/25/2014) I've held out as long as I could knowing the upside and the weight of my investment, but enough is enough: Shelby Miller no longer has a place on my mixed-league rosters.

I thought he was making progress. I thought he had tweaked his arsenal enough that the improved control we saw during a five-start stretch from May 17 to June 7, culminating in a complete-game shutout at Toronto, would bring him back to his former dominance, short-lived as it was.

But in three starts since, he has issued 12 walks over 16 innings, striking out just 13.

Granted, the last one -- which was also the worst -- came at Colorado, and pitchers usually get a pass there, but five walks in 2 2/3 innings is unacceptable regardless of the environment. And it only validated the concerns I had about his previous two starts.

As always for posts like this one, I feel the need to clarify that giving up on Miller now isn't the same as giving up on him forever. He's still young and talented and blah, blah, blah. But with this latest start, I think we've finally reached the point where if you drop Miller, you either won't miss him or you'll have another shot at him later. If the point of a bench spot is to protect what you fear losing to someone else, he's undeserving of one.


Shelby Miller expected to make next start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller exited Tuesday's game in the third inning due to back tightness, but manager Mike Matheny feels he should be available for his next scheduled start, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Miller suffered from back spasms in the third inning, and while the news from Matheny is encouraging, the team will know more about his status after a few days of rest. Miller owns a 3.75 ERA and 66:46 K:BB ratio in 93 2/3 innings going into Sunday's expected start.


Shelby Miller exits in third inning with back tightness


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2014) Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller has been diagnosed with back tightness after exiting in the third inning of Tuesday's game against the Rockies, the team announced.

Miller gave up three earned runs on six hits and five walks in 2 2/3 innings while striking out two. All three of the runs he allowed came in the first inning. Miller owns a 3.75 ERA and 66:46 K:BB ratio in 93 2/3 innings. His status for Sunday's scheduled start against the Dodgers is up in the air.


Shelby Miller not at his best in loss to Phillies


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2014) Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller was not at his best Thursday night against the Phillies, dropping to 7-6 on the year. The right-hander permitted four runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out four over 6 2/3 innings of a 4-1 defeat.

Over his last three starts covering 22 1/3 innings, Miller has allowed only five earned runs. He owns a 3.56 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP through 15 starts (91 innings). He will make his next start Tuesday at Colorado.

Shelby Miller strikes out seven in no-decision Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller didn't factor into Saturday's decision after surrendering one earned run on four hits and four walks in 6 2/3 innings while striking out seven in his team's 4-1 win over the Nationals.

Miller gave up a run on a double in the top of the first inning but was able to strand a runner on third base to end the first frame. He pitched well up to the seventh, when he walked back-to-back batters with two outs to load the bases before being removed for a reliever, who ended the potential rally. Miller owns a 3.42 ERA and 60:38 K:BB ratio in 84 1/3 innings after back-to-back quality starts. He'll face the Phillies Thursday.


Some positive signs for Shelby Miller


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/9/2014) While Shelby Miller's complete game shutout Saturday at Toronto was just his second quality start in his last five, it was the fifth in five in which he was generally in the strike zone. He has issued seven walks during that stretch after issuing 27 in his first eight starts.

The improved control has for the most part coincided with a change in arsenal. About one-third of the way through last season -- which is basically when things went sour for him -- he stopped throwing his curveball so much and eventually added a cutter to his repertoire.

Five starts ago, he began featuring his curveball more. His control improved, and he no longer seemed like a lost cause. In Saturday's start, he didn't feature his curveball as much, but his pitch selection was still vastly different from earlier this season, which shows flexibility. That's a big deal for pitcher who has repeatedly gotten in trouble for shaking off the catcher too much in the past.

If nothing else, it's a change for Miller, and a change that yields results is probably a change for the better. Nobody questions his talent, so coming off his best start of the year, he probably needs to be owned in all Fantasy leagues.


Shelby Miller tosses complete game shutout Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) Cardinals starter Shelby Miller was brilliant against the Blue Jays Saturday.

Miller was exceptional during the start, allowing just three hits over nine innings of work. Though he's had his issues with walks this year, Miller allowed just one batter to reach via the free pass. Miller struck out five Blue Jays during the outing. The win brought him to 7-5 on the year.

The game couldn't have come at a better time for Miller. The Blue Jays have been one of the best offenses in the league this season. He was also coming off a stretch where he allowed 15earned runs over his last three starts. Miller will attempt to carry over the strong start when he takes on the Nationals this week.
