Cardinals announce rotation for NLDS


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Cardinals manager Mike Matheny announced the team's rotation for NLDS against the Dodgers. Adam Wainwright will pitch in the series opener, and he will be followed by Lance Lynn, John Lackey and Shelby Miller.

Michael Wacha will be pitching out of the bullpen for St. Louis.


Shelby Miller approach Tuesday irritates manager


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Cardinals second-year starter Shelby Miller took a step back after several steps forward Tuesday against the Cubs - and Mike Matheny took notice of the reasons why.

Miller had recently stopped overthrowing his four-seam fastball and began to rely more on curves and sinkers, according to Fox Sports. The result was six straight quality starts and a 1.62 ERA during that stretch. He yielded neither a home run nor a walk in three of those outings. But he tossed plenty of four-seamers against the Cubs despite his inability to keep it down. He gave up three runs in 4 1/3 innings and displeased Matheny in the process.

"He was OK," Matheny said. "It was working at the beginning, striking out three of the first four guys he saw with fastballs at the top of the zone. Seemed like he had that late life. That's also a dangerous way to pitch, as we saw."

Miller, who fanned a season-high eight despite his short time on the mound, is 10-9 with a 3.74 ERA on the year.


Shelby Miller strikes out eight in no-decision vs. Cubs


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, giving up three earned runs on five hits and two walks in just 4 1/3 innings while striking out eight in his team's 4-3 loss to the Cubs.

Miller served up a two-run home run in the second inning and a solo shot in the fifth to fall behind 3-0, but the Cardinals offense was able to pull even in the sixth inning and prevent the starter from taking a loss. He owns a 3.74 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 127:73 K:BB ratio in 183 innings. Miller's not scheduled for another start.


Shelby Miller OK for next start despite shin bruise


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) Red-hot Cardinals right-hander Shelby Miller has assured that a bruised right shin sustained Thursday against Milwaukee will not affect his preparation for his next start Tuesday against the Cubs.

Miller took a one-hopper off the bat of Ryan Braun in the sixth inning that prompted a visit from the trainer. He finished the inning before coming out of the game after 82 pitches.

The 23-year-old starter has been on a roll with four earned runs allowed in his last 34 innings pitched covering five starts.


Shelby Miller posts quality start in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) Cardinals starter Shelby Miller turned in another quality outing but wasn't able to factor into the decision Thursday night at home against St. Louis. He allowed two runs -- one earned -- on five hits and no walks while striking out four over six innings of work.

Miller owns a 3.68 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP over 178 2 /3 innings. He will make his next start on Tuesday in Chicago against the Cubs.

Shelby Miller jumps over .500 with another solid outing


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Shelby Miller tosses seven more scoreless innings


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) For the second straight start, Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller tossed seven scoreless innings Monday. This time it resulted in a win as St. Louis beat the Reds 5-0. Miller (9-9) was very efficient, striking out four, walking none and allowing three hits.

He threw 81 pitches while lowering his ERA to 3.83. Having allowed two runs over his past 21 innings, Miller faces the Rockies at home Saturday.


Shelby Miller neither allows nor receives run in no-decision


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Cardinals starter Shelby Miller had everything going but good luck Wednesday afternoon in helping his team complete a sweep of Pittsburgh.

The right-hander hurled seven scoreless innings, giving up just five hits with three walks and five strikeouts. Miller allowed two baserunners only in the second and seventh innings. Unfortunately, his teammates were in the process of getting shut out until the ninth.

Miller, who broke a slump in which he had yielded 14 runs in his previous 24 innings, has not notched a win since July 31. He will seek to rectify that when he pitches at Cincinnati on Monday.


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.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

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.

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 pitches six strong in win over Padres


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

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.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

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.
