Shelby Miller held the Diamondbacks to one run in seven innings, but took a no-decision as the Braves needed 10 innings to pull out a win on Sunday.

Miller brought a no-hit bid into the eighth inning, but lost it when Nick Ahmed led off with a single to right-center. He allowed another single to Jarrod Saltalamacchia before exiting. Reliever Ross Detwiler would allow one of the inherited runners to score on a fielder's choice. Along with the paltry two hits, Miller walked four and struck out 10. Due to the league's worst run support, Miller has a shoddy 5-9 record but sports a terrific 2.43 ERA with a 1.16 WHIP and a 128/52 K/BB ratio over 152 innings. He'll face the Cubs at Wrigley Field in his next start.
Aug 16 - 5:08 PM

Shelby Miller pitched well once again in a losing effort against the Marlins on Sunday, allowing just two runs on five hits over his five innings of work.

The right-hander walked three and struck out four on the afternoon. All of the damage against him came in the second inning when Brad Hand plated a run with a sacrifice bunt and Dee Gordon drove home the eventual game-winner with a single. Astonishingly, despite owning a stellar 2.48 ERA and 1.17 WHIP on the season, Miller is winless in his last 15 starts dating back to May 17. He'll look to end that streak on Friday when he battles the Cubs at Wrigley Field.
Aug 9 - 8:23 PM

Shelby Miller allowed two runs over seven innings in a no-decision against the Giants on Tuesday.

Miller gave up just four hits and walked three over his seven innings, and he left in line for his sixth win. Instead, Miller settled for a no-decision, leaving him at 5-8 on the year. Miller owns a 2.44 ERA and 1.16 WHIP through 22 starts. He'll square off with the Marlins on Sunday.
Aug 4 - 11:14 PM

Shelby Miller was tagged for four runs and 11 hits in six innings Thursday in a loss to the Phillies.

This makes six straight losses for Miller. The Braves have lost each of his last eight starts, though that's more because they've scored a total of nine runs in those eight games than anything Miller has done wrong. He's not pitching quite as well as he did during the first three months, but he's not exactly struggling, either.
Jul 30 - 10:43 PM

Shelby Miller was charged with one run over 7 1/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Cardinals.

Miller had allowed just one hit over seven scoreless innings when the bottom of the eighth inning began at Busch Stadium, Shelby's old stomping ground. Yadier Molina singled, Randal Grichuk drew a walk, and then pinch-hitter Stephen Piscotty laced a one-out RBI sacrifice fly to right field off Braves reliever Luis Avilan. Miller will carry a 2.27 ERA into his next start on the road against the Phillies. He's having a tremendous first year with Atlanta.
Jul 25 - 9:31 PM

Shelby Miller logged another quality start in Sunday's loss to the Cubs, surrendering three runs (one earned) on four hits over his six frames.

The right-hander racked up eight strikeouts on the afternoon while issuing four free passes. A victim of poor run support, Miller has compiled a 3.17 ERA over 65 2/3 innings in his last 11 starts and has a grand total of zero wins to show for his effort. Now 5-6 on the season, he'll carry a terrific 2.33 ERA and 1.16 WHIP into Saturday's matchup against the Cardinals in St. Louis.
Jul 19 - 8:31 PM

Shelby Miller was knocked around for a season-high five runs over five innings in a loss to the Rockies on Friday.

Miller gave up a season-high 11 hits, including a home run from Carlos Gonzalez. The big blow was a three-run fourth inning, which noticeably frustrated him. Miller struck out seven and walked one in the loss. While he still owns a fine 2.38 ERA on the year, he's winless over his last 10 starts. Most of that has been about a lack of run support. He'll hope to break that streak coming out of the All-Star break.
Jul 11 - 12:44 AM

Shelby Miller's 6 1/3 scoreless innings went to waste as the Braves lost in 10 innings to the Phillies on Sunday.

Miller scattered seven hits and two walks while striking out eight, nearly matching opposing starter Cole Hamels in zeroes. He left with a runner on second base and one out in the seventh as Luis Avilan relieved him, and the Phillies were again kept off the board. Miller, despite pitching tremendously, hasn't gotten a win since May 17. He's 5-4 with a 2.07 ERA, a 1.10 WHIP, and an 88/34 K/BB ratio in 108 2/3 innings. Miller will start at Coors Field against the Rockies next.
Jul 5 - 4:54 PM

Shelby Miller was ineffective in a loss to the Nationals on Tuesday, serving up five runs (four earned) over five innings.

Miller did strike out a season-high 10 batters, but allowed eight hits and three walks. The Nats scored four of their five runs in the first inning, and tacked on that fifth run in the third inning thanks to an A.J. Pierzynski throwing error. Miller has only twice in 16 starts allowed four-plus runs, but both have occurred in June. He still owns an outstanding 2.20 ERA with a 1.07 WHIP and an 80/32 K/BB ratio over 102 1/3 innings. Miller will face a low-scoring Phillies lineup at home his next turn through the rotation.
Jun 30 - 10:34 PM

Shelby Miller got a no-decision, limiting the Nationals to one run over seven innings as the Braves dropped Wednesday's contest 2-1 in 11 innings.

Miller and opposing starter Jordan Zimmermann were trading zeroes until the seventh inning, when Miller relented a run on a Bryce Harper single. It was one of only three hits allowed on the night along with a walk and five strikeouts. Despite a 5-3 record, Miller ranks as an early Cy Young candidate with a 1.94 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and a 70/29 K/BB ratio over 97 1/3 innings. He'll get the Nationals again next week, this time at home.
Jun 24 - 10:28 PM

Shelby Miller surrendered four runs -- one earned -- and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the Red Sox.

Miller is up to six straight starts without a win, though he's had just one poor outing in that span. Unless maybe you'd like to count this one as poor. He allowed just one run through five before giving up five hits in a three-run sixth. All of the runs were unearned because Juan Uribe dropped a foul popup before Mookie Betts' single.
Jun 18 - 11:34 PM

Shelby Miller threw a quality start in a no-decision against the Mets on Saturday, allowing three runs (two earned) on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Miller pitched well, but he was facing off with an on-fire Jacob deGrom and received almost no offensive support. A late rally by the Braves would take him off the hook for a potential loss, though, and in fact, the Braves would ultimately win the game 5-3 in 11 innings. All three runs against Miller scored in the seventh inning when Travis d'Arnaud hit an RBI single (two runs came in, though the second scored on an error) and Lucas Duda rapped an RBI double. Miller struck out four and walked two over the course of the game. He'll bring a strong 2.02 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 61/28 K/BB ratio over 84 2/3 innings into his next start, a home tilt against the Red Sox.
Jun 13 - 8:00 PM

Shelby Miller stymied the Padres, giving up just one run in seven innings, but the Braves' bullpen left him with a no-decision and contributed to an 11-inning loss on Monday.

Miller allowed a second-inning RBI double to Corey Spangenberg, but that was it for offense for the Padres until the right-hander exited the game. He scattered five hits and a walk while striking out six. Miller continues to rank, quietly, among the game's best starters, owning a 1.84 ERA with a 0.98 WHIP and a 57/25 K/BB ratio over 78 1/3 innings. Despite pitching well, he hasn't won since May 17. He will try to change that versus the Mets at Citi Field in his next outing.
Jun 8 - 11:09 PM

Shelby Miller got a no-decision in his worst outing of the season, surrendering four runs in 4 1/3 innings to the Diamondbacks as the Braves lost on Tuesday.

Miller entered the game with the best ERA among starters at 1.48, but the D'Backs didn't much care. The right-hander struggled mightily with control, walking six while giving up six hits and striking out only two. The control problems aren't enough to warrant concern, but fantasy owners should have known Miller wouldn't keep it up all season long. He still has a 1.89 ERA with a 1.00 WHIP and a 51/24 K/BB ratio over 71 1/3 innings. Miller will try to bounce back in a home start versus the Padres.
