According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, "20 or so teams" have checked on Braves right-hander Shelby Miller.
But the asking price is extremely high at the moment, with the Braves reportedly requesting starting pitcher Luis Severino from the Yankees and center fielder Joc Pederson from the Dodgers. Miller is only 25 years old and registered a 3.02 ERA over 205-plus innings in 2015, but the rebuilding Braves want as much cost-controlled talent as possible as they point toward the opening of a new ballpark in 2017. Miller is eligible for arbitration for the first time this winter and can become a free agent after the 2018 season. Nov 30 - 3:27 PM

According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the Giants and Dodgers have checked in on the availability of Shelby Miller.

Atlanta is apparently willing to listen to offers for anybody and everybody at the moment. Miller registered a stellar 3.02 ERA across 205 1/3 innings in 2015 and he just turned 25 years old. There were reports earlier this week that he might be moved to the Diamondbacks, but the Braves apparently wanted star center fielder A.J. Pollock in return. It's going to take some serious talent to pluck Shelby away, though the Braves are clearly open for business.
Nov 19 - 9:05 AM

Shelby Miller snapped a 24-start winless streak Sunday, spinning eight shutout innings in a 6-0 victory over the Cardinals.

The Cardinals were basically treating the game as a spring training contest, playing 16 position players as they just tried to keep everyone healthy. However, Miller will certainly take it and he pitched terrifically regardless, allowing just three hits and three walks while striking out seven. It was his first win since May 17. The right-hander's season concludes with a 6-17 record despite a 3.02 ERA across 33 starts. Miller will be arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter.
Oct 4 - 3:42 PM

Shelby Miller lost Sunday's start versus the Marlins, yielding seven runs (four earned) in 5 1/3 innings.

With that, Miller has lost each of his last eight starts and remains winless over his last 24 starts. He gave up seven hits and walked one while striking out two. Miller will head into his final start of the season, at home facing the Cardinals, with a major league-leading 17 losses despite a solid 3.10 ERA with a 1.27 WHIP and a 164/70 K/BB ratio over 197 1/3 innings.
Sep 27 - 4:37 PM

Shelby Miller lost to the Mets on Monday, running his winless streak to 23 starts.

Miller allowed a bunch of base runners but limited the Mets to only two runs in six innings. He gave up seven hits and four walks while striking out three. Travis d'Arnaud hit into a double play to bring in a run in the first inning and Michael Conforto hit a solo homer in the second. Miller now leads the majors with 16 losses but maintains a 3.00 ERA with a 1.26 WHIP and a 162/69 K/BB ratio over 192 innings. He'll try again to end the streak in a road start versus the Marlins.
Sep 21 - 10:08 PM

Shelby Miller fell to 5-15, losing Wednesday's start against the Blue Jays after yielding five runs (four earned) in 3 2/3 innings.

The Blue Jays walloped Miller for four runs in the opening frame and tacked on one more in his final inning. The right-hander gave up seven hits and two walks while striking out three overall. He remains winless since May 17, a span of 22 starts. Despite that, Miller holds a productive 3.00 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP and a 159/65 K/BB ratio over 186 innings. He'll try to get that elusive win next week at Citi Field when he faces the Mets.
Sep 16 - 10:45 PM

Shelby Miller struggled in Saturday's loss to the Nationals, allowing seven runs on seven hits over 4 1/3 innings.

Miller struck out four and walked three on the evening. His most troubled inning was the third. In that frame, the Nationals scored four times, with the loudest blow coming on a two-run homer by Bryce Harper. Despite the disappointing outing, Miller still maintains a 2.86 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 151/61 K/BB ratio over 176 1/3 innings. He'll look to pitch a tighter game in his upcoming home start against the Mets.
Sep 5 - 10:24 PM

Shelby Miller remained winless since May 17, firing seven innings of one-run ball in a loss to the Marlins on Monday.

As usual, the Braves didn't offer him any run support. Miller's lone mistake occurred in the second inning, when Cole Gillespie hammered a solo home run out to left field. It was one of six hits he allowed with no walks and four strikeouts. Despite an awful 5-12 record, Miller has had a great season, sporting a 2.56 ERA with a 1.18 WHIP and a 147/58 K/BB ratio over 172 innings. He'll try not to have his winless streak extended to 20 starts when he faces the Nationals in a road match-up next.
Aug 31 - 10:20 PM

Shelby Miller is starting Monday against the Marlins.

Miller will jump ahead in the Braves' rotation to fill in for Michael Foltynewicz, who has been scratched from his scheduled turn due to fever and viral symptoms.
Aug 31 - 3:38 PM

Shelby Miller was dealt his 10th loss of the season on Friday, surrendering five runs (three earned) on six hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Miller punched out eight on the afternoon while walking four. He looked poised to finally snap his winless streak, which extends to 17 starts, as he carried a 3-1 lead into the sixth inning on Friday before the Cubs offense woke up. Now 5-10 on the year, Miller will carry a stellar 2.50 ERA and 1.17 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Rockies.
Aug 21 - 7:09 PM

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.
