Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway confirmed Wednesday that Andrew Miller (knee) is on track to be activated from the disabled list on Thursday.

Indians manager Terry Francona hinted at the same thing Tuesday in his pregame scrum with the media. Miller threw a successful 30-pitch simulated game on Monday and then took pitchers fielding practice without experiencing any discomfort in his troublesome right knee.

Andrew Miller (knee) could be activated from the disabled list on Thursday.

Miller made it through a 30-pitch simulated game on Monday without issue and then went through pitchers fielding practice. Indians manager Terry Francona said the left-handed setup man will either throw another simulated game Thursday or pitch in a real game for the Tribe. There should be something more official soon. Miller, out since August 22 with patella tendinitis, boasts a 1.65 ERA and 79/17 K/BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings this season.

Andrew Miller (knee) threw a 30-pitch simulated game Monday.

Miller faced teammates Jason Kipnis and Erik Gonzalez in the simulated game and then went through pitcher's fielding practice. Assuming he comes out of it with no issues, he should be activated by the Indians soon.

Andrew Miller (knee) will throw another bullpen session on Friday.

This comes after Miller threw a pair of side sessions on Monday and Wednesday. The relief ace has been dealing lingering patellar tendinitis in his right knee, but he's getting closer to rejoining the Indians' bullpen. Miller has been excellent when healthy this year, posting a 1.65 ERA and 79/17 K/BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings.
Sep 7 - 10:25 PM

Andrew Miller (knee) is scheduled to throw another bullpen session on Wednesday.

Miller made it through his first mound workout Monday without issue. "He's feeling pretty good," Indians manager Terry Francona said Tuesday in Chicago. It sounds like the left-handed setup man could be ready for activation around the middle of September.
Sep 5 - 6:31 PM

Indians manager Terry Francona said Wednesday that Andrew Miller (knee) has resumed throwing.

Miller was shut down for several days after being diagnosed last week with patellofemoral syndrome in his right knee. He's just throwing on flat ground for now and there is no timetable for him to get back on a mound. We wouldn't expect to see him back in Cleveland before mid-September.
Aug 30 - 11:32 AM

Andrew Miller will be shut down for 5-7 days after being diagnosed with patellofemoral syndrome in his right knee.

Don't let the unfamiliar diagnosis scare you, as the Indians say they're optimistic Miller will respond well to a throwing program after a little rest. That said, it does sound like it will definitely keep him on the shelf for multiple weeks.
Aug 25 - 3:14 PM

Indians placed LHP Andrew Miller on the 10-day disabled list with right knee patella tendinitis.

Miller aggravated his knee injury during an appearance against the Red Sox on Monday night. He missed about two weeks last time and could require a longer absence this time around. More should be known in the coming days.
Aug 22 - 3:26 PM

Andrew Miller was pulled from an appearance versus the Red Sox on Monday after aggravating the patella tendinitis in his right knee.

Miller made only one rehab appearance and was making just his second appearance since being activated from the disabled list. Clearly, he wasn't totally over the ailment and a trip back to the DL would seem to be possible, if not likely.
Aug 21 - 10:24 PM

Andrew Miller departed an appearance Monday against the Red Sox with an apparent injury.

Miller threw seven pitches -- with only two of them going for strikes -- before walking off the mound and into the clubhouse. His velocity ranged from 88-92 mph. It was his second appearance since returning from tendinitis in his right knee, but it's unclear if that's what he's dealing with again. The Indians should have an update soon.

Indians activated LHP Andrew Miller from the 10-day disabled list.

Miller has missed nearly all of August with patella tendinitis in his right knee, but he made a rehab appearance with no issues and is ready to go. He'll return to a setup role ahead of Cody Allen.
Aug 18 - 5:43 PM

Andrew Miller (knee) tossed a scoreless inning Wednesday in a rehab appearance for Triple-A Columbus.

Miller fanned two hitters while throwing 10 of his 12 pitches for strikes. The left-hander didn't show any signs of rust in his first and perhaps only rehab outing and could be back in the Indians' pen as soon as this weekend.
Aug 17 - 12:05 AM

Andrew Miller (knee) will make a minor league rehab appearance on Wednesday.

Miller threw his second bullpen session in three days on Sunday and is now ready to test himself in game action. The southpaw should only need one appearance before being activated. The relief ace has been out since the start of August with patella tendinitis in his right knee.
Aug 14 - 10:13 AM

Andrew Miller (knee) threw another bullpen session on Sunday morning.

Miller appears to be recovered from his right knee tendinitis, but the Indians might ask him to make one minor league rehab appearance before they bring him back from the disabled list. The left-hander owns a dominant 1.67 ERA, 0.76 WHIP, and 78/15 K/BB ratio through 54 innings this season.
