A.J. Burnett, Shelby Miller among NL All Stars not to pitch in game


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2015) Five healthy National League pitchers didn't get into Tuesday's All Star Game:

Braves SP Shelby Miller eager to return to old stomping grounds


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2015) All-Star Shelby Miller has made 18 starts for the Braves this season, but he might be more eager for No. 20 than any of the others.

That will will be July 25 at Busch Stadium against the Cardinals, who traded him to Atlanta.

"I'm definitely excited to be back there," he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Miller added that his improvement, which has resulted in a 5-5 record and 2.38 ERA (ranking sixth in the National League) had nothing to do with the deal. Rather, it was the result of his work on a sinker that has continued to improve.

His next start is slated for Sunday against the Cubs.


Braves SP Shelby Miller unable to limit damage in loss Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/10/2015) Braves right-hander Shelby Miller struggled in his outing against the Rockies on Friday. Miller allowed five runs on a season-high 11 hits. He walked one and struck out seven in five innings of work, as the Braves lost to the Rockies 5-3.

Miller (5-5) allowed an early run in the first inning, and then settled in before allowing three runs to cross in the fourth inning. He also served up a solo home run to Carlos Gonzalez in the fifth inning. 

This was a step backwards for Miller, who threw seven shutout innings in his previous start. He ends the first half of the season with a 3.66 ERA over his last eight starts. He hasn't won a game since May 17.

"It's a tough place to pitch," said Miller, per MLB.com. "I didn't make pitches, and it's absolutely my fault."

Braves SP Shelby Miller fails to go five innings in Tuesday's loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

"I just didn't get in the groove type thing, but those kinds of days happen," Miller said, per MLB.com. "I mean, you're human. You look at Felix Hernandez's start [on Monday night in a Mariners' 7-1 loss to the Yankees] and other guys who are doing well have poor starts. That kind of stuff's going to happen."


Braves SP Shelby Miller allows one run in Thursday's loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2015) 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.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) 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.

Shelby Miller's promising start has piqued interest of opposing teams


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) 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.
