2008 AL Central Prospects

Wednesday, January 23, 2008

as well as solid mound aggressiveness- it's that Miller has yet to shake the injury tag, and things only seem to be getting worse in that department, as he keeps finding malady after malady to compound onto an already beaten body.

Because of these injury concerns, Miller has been moved to the bullpen for the foreseeable future, and due to his regression over the last season and into the AFL, it's quite likely he'll need a lot more time in Triple-A this year than Cleveland was hoping for. And because Cleveland is a serious contender, it's unlikely that they throw Miller into pressure situations for fear he injures himself trying to do everything he can for the team. Unless Miller magically manifests consistency out of thin air and is able to keep the wheels on for an extended period of time, expect that any time he sees in the majors this year to be full of bumps and bruises. Avoid and sell while you still can.
