Andrew Miller (knee) threw a bullpen session on Wednesday.
That makes three bullpen sessions in six days for Miller; or every other day since Friday. The valuable reliever will either go on a rehab assignment or be activated from the disabled list soon; depending on how the southpaw is feeling. Either way, we should see Miller back on the Cleveland pitching staff sometime in the middle of June. Jun 13 - 4:56 PM

Date:

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

Miller threw a 30-pitch bullpen in Detroit on Friday without any issues. If all goes well with Monday's session he could then be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment, if the Indians deem one necessary. The 33-year-old owns an uncharacteristic 4.40 ERA and 1.61 WHIP across 14 1/3 innings with the Indians this season.

Andrew Miller (knee) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Friday.

Miller has been sidelined for the last two weeks with right knee inflammation. The next step for him hasn't been determined yet, but it doesn't appear he's too far off from a return.
Jun 8 - 5:57 PM

Andrew Miller (knee) has been cleared to resume throwing.

Miller paid a visit this week to Dr. David Altchek at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York and it was confirmed that the left-handed setup man is merely dealing with right knee inflammation -- not something more serious. He could be back in the Indians' bullpen by mid-June if his rehab goes smoothly.
May 30 - 5:21 PM

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

There hasn't been any public chatter recently about the knee giving him issues, but anyone who's seen the results of his recent outings could have figured something wasn't right. Since coming off the 10-day DL on May 11 after a left hamstring strain, he's given up runs in three of his six outings. The knee also gave Miller problems last year.
May 26 - 4:22 PM

Andrew Miller was charged with three runs and took the loss Friday against the Astros.

Miller replaced Corey Kluber with one out in the seventh inning and induced a double-play grounder to escape a potential rally, but it was a different story in the eighth. He gave up a leadoff double to George Springer before walking Alex Bregman. Jose Altuve then tied the game with a double. Cody Allen took over from there and allowed an inherited runner to score, closing the book on a disappointing night for Miller. The southpaw has uncharacteristically allowed seven runs in six appearances since returning from the disabled list. Keep in mind that he allowed just seven earned runs during the entire first half last season.
May 26 - 1:04 AM

Andrew Miller felt his back lock up on him Friday after he completed his normal pregame routine.

Miller didn't pitch in the Indians' weekend series against the Astros. "It's frustrating," Miller said on Saturday. "I did all the pregame stuff fine. It just really locked up on me. I got treatment and it responded well. I think the smart thing was not to be out there today." It doesn't sound like a major concern, but this could provide some context for his unusual struggles of late. Miller has allowed four runs on three hits and five walks in three appearances since returning from the disabled list.
May 21 - 11:19 AM

Andrew Miller walked three and gave up two runs to cough up the lead in Tuesday's loss to the Tigers.

The Indians took a four-run lead into the bottom of the seventh inning, but Dan Otero and Miller melted down to give it up. Otero yielded a couple hits and two runs before giving way to Miller, who surrendered back-to-back doubles to tie the game and then walked three straight to force in the go-ahead run. Miller didn't give up a run in his first 11 appearances this season but has now yielded two runs in two of his three outings since returning from the disabled list.
May 15 - 11:06 PM

Andrew Miller gave up a go-ahead two-run homer to Royals catcher Salvador Perez in his return from the disabled list Friday.

Miller fired 10 scoreless innings to begin the season before going down with a hamstring strain in late-April. It makes sense that he’d be a bit rusty, but the struggles for Cleveland’s bullpen continue.
May 12 - 12:40 AM

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

Miller wound up missing a couple weeks of action with a strained left hamstring. The star reliever will rejoin an Indians bullpen that desperately missed him.
May 11 - 3:01 PM

Andrew Miller (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

Miller threw a successful bullpen session Saturday and will throw another one Tuesday. Assuming it goes well, he'll rejoin the Indians' bullpen Friday. The left-handed reliever has missed the last week and a half with a strained left hamstring.
May 6 - 11:21 AM

Andrew Miller (hamstring) is not expected to be activated from the disabled list on Sunday as originally hoped.

The Indians' training staff has decided they want Miller to get a pair of successful bullpen sessions in before they activate the reliever. That likely puts him in line to return next Tuesday following the off day Monday. Miller has been out for the last week and a half with a strained left hamstring.
May 4 - 5:12 PM

Andrew Miller (hamstring) could be activated off the disabled list Sunday.

That's the first day he's eligible. Miller is traveling with the Indians to New York this weekend and will likely throw a bullpen session Friday to test his left hamstring. "He's champing at the bit to throw that bullpen," manager Terry Francona said prior to Thursday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays. "That's the big step for him, is when he gets off the mound, because you start to use your legs. He's throwing right now and feeling nothing, but he's on flat ground.
May 3 - 3:07 PM

Indians placed LHP Andrew Miller on the 10-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Miller suffered the injury during an appearance Wednesday night against the Cubs. He figures to miss around two weeks. The dominant left-handed setup man leaves behind a 0.00 ERA and 17/4 K/BB ratio in 10 innings.
Apr 26 - 1:58 PM

Andrew Miller will undergo an MRI to get more info on the tightness in his left hamstring.

Cleveland manager Terry Francona told reporters that the initial prognosis is that it's not a serious injury. Francona also noted that Miller went through a similar issue a couple years ago, and that he only needed a few extra days of rest. For now he should be considered day-to-day, but we'll have more information on Thursday when the results of the MRI come back.
