Date:

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.

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.
Aug 13 - 11:49 AM

Indians manager Terry Francona said Tuesday that Andrew Miller is making progress in his recovery from right knee tendinitis.

Francona did not offer an exact timetable for Miller's activation from the disabled list, but it sounds like this won't be a lengthy absence. Miller was sporting a dominant 1.67 ERA, 0.76 WHIP, and 78/15 K/BB ratio through 54 innings this season out of the Indians' bullpen. He's been out since August 2.
Aug 8 - 5:02 PM

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

It's unclear how much time this injury might cost Miller, who has been his usual dominant self here in 2017. He did allow a run on a hit, a walk, and a hit-by-pitch in his last appearance Tuesday versus Boston, but the 32-year-old setup man still boasts a 1.67 ERA and 0.76 WHIP in 46 total appearances this season.
Aug 2 - 3:35 PM

Andrew Miller earned the save with a scoreless 10th inning in Tuesday night's 2017 MLB All-Star Game.

Robinson Cano pushed the AL ahead of the NL with a solo homer off Cubs closer Wade Davis in the top of the 10th, and Miller made it stick in the bottom of the 10th. The lefty issued a two-out walk to Joey Votto but struck out Cody Bellinger to end it. Miller will carry a brilliant 1.42 ERA and 0.68 WHIP into the second half of the 2017 regular season.
Jul 11 - 11:51 PM

Andrew Miller worked a tidy eight-pitch perfect ninth inning for his second save of the season in Game 2 of a doubleheader in Detroit.

Miller has racked up a pair of saves over his past six appearances while striking out 14 batters over his past 6 2/3 innings. He was giant for the Indians in the postseason in 2016 and he has carried that momentum over into the regular season. With the exception of a rare meltdown on June 14 against the Dodgers when he allowed four runs, he has been money. Outside of that awful mid-June appearance, Miller has yielded just three runs over 41 2/3 innings.
Jul 2 - 2:16 AM

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.
Jun 15 - 12:27 AM

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.
Jun 13 - 10:58 PM

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.
May 29 - 7:25 PM

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.
May 23 - 11:01 PM

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.
