Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Diamondbacks "have let teams know Shelby Miller is available in a trade."
Passan, rather obviously, notes that the price to acquire Miller "isn't nearly what it cost them eight months ago." The right-hander's stock has dropped so much after a 7.14 ERA in 14 starts and a demotion to the minors that you've got to wonder if the D'Backs aren't better off riding it out. Perhaps they think they can capitalize somewhat on a depressed starting pitching market. Robert Murray of FanRag Sports reports that the Dodgers and Marlins are among the teams that have inquired on Miller. Jul 24 - 2:21 PM

Diamondbacks optioned RHP Shelby Miller to Triple-A Reno.

Arizona will announce a corresponding roster move on Friday. It's a big admission of defeat for the Diamondbacks, who traded their best prospect Dansby Swanson for Miller this past offseason. Miller has been among the worst starters in baseball this year, losing nine of 14 starts with a miserable 7.14 ERA. The 25-year-old should be back with the D'backs at some point this year but there's no guarantee he'll return to fantasy relevance.
Jul 14 - 8:08 PM

Shelby Miller dropped to 2-9 after giving up six runs in five innings Wednesday against the Padres.

The Diamondbacks have to decide whether to keep sending Miller out there to continue getting beaten up or if it might make more sense to put him in the pen for a spell. He has a 7.23 ERA in four starts since coming off the DL and 7.14 ERA in 14 starts overall.
Jul 7 - 1:15 AM

Shelby Miller gave up five runs in six innings Friday in a loss to the Giants.

After a successful return from the DL against the Phillies, Miller has given up 12 runs over 12 innings his last two times out. The previous poor outing was against the Rockies in Coors, so that can be somewhat excused. This wasn't a particularly easy matchup either, but the Giants weren't playing Buster Posey or Denard Span. Miller needs to be a whole lot better to become interesting in fantasy leagues again.
Jul 2 - 12:41 AM

Shelby Miller allowed seven runs on 11 hits over six innings in Saturday's loss to the Rockies.

After a promising turn in his first start off the disabled list, Miller fell back to his old struggles Saturday. Two of the Rockies' 11 hits were homers, giving him 12 homers allowed in 12 starts. Of course, part of his issue Saturday could be Coors Field, but he's now 2-7 with a 6.79 ERA and 1.77 WHIP in those 12 starts. Miller will keep searching for some stability Friday against the Giants.
Jun 25 - 10:18 PM

Shelby Miller tossed 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball Monday in the Diamondbacks' 3-1 win over the Phillies.

It was against a lineup that featured Andres Blanco at cleanup, but this was unquestionably Miller's finest performance in a Diamondbacks uniform. He struck out five, walked just one, and the only run he allowed came on a second-inning double by Tyler Goeddel. Maybe the time off really will end up helping Miller, but we'd see how he fares against a respectable offense before making a waiver claim. He gets the Rockies at Coors Field next.
Jun 20 - 4:09 PM

Diamondbacks activated RHP Shelby Miller from the 15-day disabled list.

Miller will return to the Diamondbacks' rotation Monday afternoon against the Phillies. He was placed on the disabled list May 27 with a numbing sensation in his right index finger and a 7.09 ERA. We wouldn't trust him in a mixed fantasy league even though he dominated in his two rehab starts with High-A Visalia.
Jun 20 - 10:13 AM

Shelby Miller (finger) is now expected to return to the Diamondbacks' rotation Monday.

Miller was initially expected to be activated Sunday, but that is now Archie Bradley's spot in the rotation and the Diamondbacks want to keep Bradley rolling. Miller struck out six batters over six innings of one-run ball Tuesday at High-A Visalia. He registered 11 strikeouts in six shutout innings last Thursday in his rehab debut. We still wouldn't trust him in a mixed league.
Jun 15 - 3:15 PM

Shelby Miller (finger) remains on track to return from the disabled list this Sunday.

Miller struck out eight batters and issued only one walk over six innings of one-run ball Tuesday with High-A Visalia. And he racked up 11 strikeouts over six shutout frames last Thursday with Visalia. We'd still leave him on the waiver wire in most fantasy formats. Miller is lined up to face the Phillies in his return from a jammed right index finger.
Jun 15 - 1:17 PM

Shelby Miller (finger) could be activated from the disabled list to start Sunday against the Phillies.

It depends on how things go during Miller's next minor league rehab outing on Tuesday. The 25-year-old was great in his first outing last Thursday, striking out 11 batters over six scoreless innings with High-A Visalia. Zack Godley would be the alternative to start Sunday versus Philadelphia.
Jun 13 - 8:57 PM

Shelby Miller (finger) is expected to make at least one more rehab start before joining the Diamondbacks' rotation.

Miller dominated in Thursday's rehab start for High-A Visalia, fanning 11 hitters over six shutout frames. It looks like Miller will stay in Visalia for his next outing. The 25-year-old's first year with the Diamondbacks hasn't gone as planned. The right-hander owns a dismal 7.09 ERA with just one win in 10 starts.
Jun 11 - 7:54 PM

Shelby Miller (finger) is scheduled to make his first rehab start Thursday with High-A Visalia.

Miller was placed on the disabled list May 27, retroactive to May 25, with a numbing sensation in his right index finger (and a 7.09 ERA). The right-hander will probably make at least two minor league starts as he tries to get himself right physically and mentally. He's expected to throw around 85 pitches on Thursday.
Jun 8 - 12:56 PM

Shelby Miller (finger) is scheduled to pitch in an extended spring training game Saturday.

He made it through another side session Wednesday without issue. Miller was placed on the disabled list with an injured right index finger on May 27, retroactive to May 25. He had a 7.09 ERA, 1.86 WHIP, and 30/29 K/BB ratio through his first 45 2/3 innings this season with Arizona.
Jun 2 - 12:57 PM

Diamondbacks placed RHP Shelby Miller on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 25, with a right index finger injury.

Miller hurt the finger last month when he dragged it across the mound on his follow-through after delivering a pitch, and the D'Backs are saying the finger is still an issue. It's unclear at this point how long he'll be sidelined, but the club will likely take its time with Miller given how much he's struggled Archie Bradley is expected to replace him in the rotation.
May 27 - 5:37 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Diamondbacks are expected to place Shelby Miller (finger) on the disabled list Friday.

Manager Chip Hale revealed Thursday that Miller is still dealing with discomfort in a finger on his right hand as a result of an injury last month. It's fair to question whether Miller is truly hurt or whether the D'Backs just want to give the struggling righty some time off, but either way he's not going to start for them for a while. Archie Bradley will replace Miller in the rotation.
