Indians manager Terry Francona said he'll continue to use Andrew Miller in the ninth inning "for the time being."
Miller earned his first save of the season on Sunday against the Twins and he also worked the ninth inning in a non-save situation Saturday. Francona said he has temporarily moved Miller into that role because he is worried about overusing the left-hander in a multi-inning setup gig. Cody Allen should eventually take back over as the Indians' primary saves man, possibly as soon as this week. Jun 19 - 3:15 PM

Andrew Miller was charged with four runs and a loss while registering just two outs against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

He gave up a home run for the second day in a row, this time it was a solo shot by Kike Hernandez in the eighth inning. All told he gave up two hits and two walks and all four runners came around to score. Despite today's brutal game he still has a 1.60 ERA with 49 strikeouts and seven walks in 33 2/3 innings. That shows how good he has been up to this point. Miller has been a sensational reliever for several years running and that is not likely to change anytime soon.

Andrew Miller gave up his first homer and took his first loss Tuesday against the Indians.

Cody Bellinger hit the homer. It went as just the second earned run charged to Miller in 33 innings this season, and it resulted in his first regular-season loss after seven wins since he was traded to Cleveland last year. His 2017 ERA sits at 0.55.

Andrew Miller struck out all three batters he faced in a dominant eighth inning Monday versus the Athletics.

Miller picked up his 12th hold along the way. The left-handed setup man boasts a dominant 0.35 ERA, 0.69 WHIP, and 36/5 K/BB ratio in 26 innings this season.

Andrew Miller picked up four outs and notched his third win Tuesday against the Reds.

We figured the Indians would manage Miller's innings this year in the hopes of having him at peak form in October. It hasn't really been the case thus far, though; he's thrown 22 1/3 innings through 44 games. He's been outstanding, of course, allowing just one run to date. It has to be hard for Terry Francona to resist the temptation to throw him into every close game.

Andrew Miller snagged a relief win by striking out one batter in a clean eighth inning versus the Royals on Saturday.

He had to work around an error by second baseman Jason Kipnis that allowed Alex Gordon to reach base with nobody out. Miller has yet to earn a save but has two wins, a perfect 0.00 ERA and 21 strikeouts in 14 2/3 innings.
May 6 - 7:20 PM

Andrew Miller earned his second hold of the season with a scoreless eighth inning Monday versus the Twins.

Miller issued a one-out walk to Robbie Grossman but retired the other three batters he faced, getting Joe Mauer with a strikeout. The dominant left-handed setup man boasts a 0.00 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, and 8/1 K/BB ratio through seven innings in 2017.
Apr 17 - 11:47 PM

Andrew Miller fell apart Saturday in the United States' loss to the Dominican Republic in the WBC, yielding four runs on three hits with two strikeouts and a hit-by-pitch in just 2/3 of an inning.

Coming off one of the greatest postseason pitching performances we’ve ever seen, Miller was no match for the Dominican Republic on Saturday. Miller crumbled in the eighth inning, beginning the frame by plunking Jose Bautista and allowing a base hit to Carlos Santana. After that, Nelson Cruz promptly emptied the bases with a towering three-run homer to left field, sending the whole state of Florida into a frenzy. Two batters later, Starling Marte did the same thing, this time going opposite field for a solo blast to right field. Even a reliever as dominant as Miller can have an off night, but it’s fair to wonder if he’s still fatigued from last year’s deep playoff run.
Mar 11 - 10:55 PM

Andrew Miller surrendered two runs on one hit in 2/3 of an inning during the United States' loss Twins on Wednesday.

Team USA took a 2-0 lead in the first inning, but Miller would come on in the second to surrender RBI singles to Jason Castro and Jorge Polanco. Miller also struck out one and walked one during his brief, wobbly showing.
Mar 8 - 9:48 PM

Indians president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti indicated Tuesday that the club doesn't have any intention of trading Andrew Miller this offseason.

Miller and Cody Allen were a potent late-inning combo down the stretch and during the postseason and the Indians plan to have the same dynamic in place for 2017. Miller is owed $18 million over the next two seasons, an absolute bargain rate. The Indians could ask for a major haul in return, but it sounds like they have no intention of doing so.

Andrew Miller proved human in Wednesday's 10-inning loss to the Cubs in Game 7 of the World Series, allowing two runs on four hits over 2 1/3 innings.

The Indians trailed 4-1 at the time Miller entered with nobody out in the fifth inning. They desperately needed a few scoreless frames to claw back on the scoreboard. No such luck. The ace reliever surrendered an RBI single to Anthony Rizzo before the close of the fifth and opened the sixth surrendering a home run to David Ross. Prior to Wednesday's slight misstep, Miller had pitched beautifully in October and November. He finished the Indians' AL pennant-winning 2016 postseason having allowed three runs on 12 hits over 19 1/3 innings, striking out 30 along the way.

Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway said that the plan for Game 7 of the World Series is to bring in Andrew Miller after Corey Kluber, with Cody Allen to close.

Depending on how deep Kluber is able to pitch into Wednesday's deciding contest, Bryan Shaw could potentially be used as a bridge piece to reach the dynamic bullpen duo of Miller and Allen. The Indians are looking to win their first World Series since 1948.

Indians manager Terry Francona said that Andrew Miller could be available for "an inning, max" during Game 2 of the World Series.

Miller has been a bullpen warrior this postseason. He took it up to a new level in the Indians' 6-0 win over the Cubs in Game 1, throwing 46 pitches over two shutout frames. That was the most pitches he has thrown since 2011. During the postseason, Miller has tossed more than one inning in every one of his seven appearances.

Andrew Miller said on MLB Network that he expects to be "ready to go" for Game 2 of the World Series against the Cubs on Wednesday.

Miller threw 46 pitches over two scoreless innings in Game 1, his most in any outing since 2011. If all goes according to plan for the Indians, they'll have a big enough cushion where Miller won't be needed, but he plans to be ready if the opportunity arises. It's also possibly that Game 2 is postponed due to rain and Miller will get some rest.

Indians manager Terry Francona would not say whether Andrew Miller is going to be available for Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday.

Miller delivered 46 pitches through two shaky but scoreless innings in the Indians' Game 1 victory over the Cubs on Tuesday. "I think when you have a lead, you try to win," said Francona. "We won tonight." The last reliever to throw 46-plus pitches in a World Series game and then make an appearance the next day was Keith Foulke in 2004 with the Red Sox. Foulke's manager that year? Terry Francona.
