Shelby Miller allowed only two runs over 5 2/3 innings Saturday in the Cardinals' win over the Cubs.
Miller looked much sharper after spending a week-plus in the St. Louis bullpen, surrendering only three hits in front of a very pro-Cardinals crowd at Wrigley Field. He did not walk a batter and struck out three. The young right-hander will try to build off this positive outing in his next start at home versus Milwaukee. Jul 26 - 7:31 PM

Shelby Miller will start fort the Cardinals on Saturday at Wrigley Field.

Carlos Martinez is being moved back to the bullpen. Miller has not been good this season, but Martinez had gone just four innings in back-to-back starts. The Cardinals are expected to acquire a starter at the deadline, so both pitchers could be relievers by August.
Jul 23 - 4:20 PM

The Cardinals are considering starting Shelby Miller on Saturday against the Cubs.

Miller was moved to the bullpen immediately following the All-Star break and made a relief appearance Sunday, but the Cards still view him as a starter over the long haul. However, they could still opt to keep him in the 'pen and start Carlos Martinez Saturday.
Jul 23 - 12:12 AM

Shelby Miller will begin the second half in the Cardinals' bullpen.

The club will go with four starters for now with a couple off days coming up. It's possible, but not a given, that Miller will re-enter the rotation later this month. The right-hander has a 7.30 ERA over his last five starts. He'll be available out of the bullpen starting on Friday.
Jul 18 - 5:33 PM

Shelby Miller took his eighth loss, allowing four runs in five innings to the Pirates on Thursday.

The Cardinals have lost the game in each of Miller's last five starts, as the right-hander has posted a 7.30 ERA in that span of time. Against the Pirates, Miller yielded five hits and four walks while striking out only one. The 23-year-old right-hander will go into the All-Star break looking to turn things around, as he sports a 4.29 ERA, a 1.47 WHIP, and a 73/54 K/BB ratio.
Jul 10 - 10:29 PM

Shelby Miller allowed three runs in 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Marlins on Saturday.

The final two runs scored after Miller was pulled in favor of Seth Maness, who gave up a three-run homer to Christian Yelich. Still, he was in line for the win until Trevor Rosenthal blew the save in the ninth. Miller struck two and walked a pair in the no-decision and now owns a 4.15 ERA and 72/50 K/BB ratio in 104 innings over 18 starts. It's tough to count on him as an every-start option in standard mixed leagues right now.
Jul 5 - 5:38 PM

Shelby Miller was tagged for six runs on seven hits over five innings in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

Miller also walked three while striking out four on the disappointing afternoon. He cruised through the first three innings virtually unscathed, but surrendered a pair in the fourth and four more in the fifth, capped off by a three-run homer off the bat of Andre Ethier. Now 7-7 on the season, he'll carry a 4.10 ERA and 1.43 WHIP into Saturday's matchup against the Marlins.

Shelby Miller (back) will start against the Dodgers on Sunday.

Miller had to leave Tuesday's game in the third inning due to back spasms. He is feeling better, as the tightness and soreness in his back have continued to fade. But, the Cardinals are in the process of bringing up a backup pitcher just in case.
Jun 28 - 10:55 PM

FOX Sports Midwest's Jim Hayes reports that the tightness and soreness in Shelby Miller's back is "close to gone."

Miller exited Tuesday's outing with back spasms, but it doesn't sound like it's going to keep him from making his scheduled start Sunday versus the Dodgers. He'll be squaring off against Clayton Kershaw.
Jun 26 - 7:22 PM

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said after Tuesday's game that Shelby Miller (back) is expected to be ready for his next scheduled start.

Miller exiting Tuesday's contests in the third inning with back spasms, but it was a precautionary move. The young right-hander will take a 3.75 ERA into Sunday's start against Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers.
Jun 25 - 1:06 AM

Shelby Miller left Tuesday's start against the Rockies due to back tightness.

The righty was pulled with two outs in the third inning after throwing a couple test pitches. For what it's worth, Miller was lobbying to remain in the game, suggesting the injury probably isn't a major concern. The Cards should provide an update later Tuesday night, but it's probably safe to consider Miller day-to-day.
Jun 24 - 10:08 PM

Shelby Miller fell to 7-6, allowing four runs over 6 2/3 innings in Thursday's loss to the Phillies.

Ryan Howard did most of the damage, singling in a run in the fourth inning and hitting an opposite-field two-run homer in the sixth. Overall, Miller allowed seven hits, walked three, and struck out four. The right-hander will take a 3.56 ERA, a 1.32 WHIP, and a 64/41 K/BB ratio into his next start on the road against the Rockies.
Jun 19 - 11:18 PM

Shelby Miller tossed 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball to help the Cardinals beat the Nationals on Saturday.

Miller allowed an RBI double to Jayson Werth in the top of the first inning but quickly settled in after that, yielding just four hits in all while striking out seven. He ran out of gas in the seventh inning and left with the bases loaded, but Randy Choate was able to take care of that threat. Miller has a 3.42 ERA and 60 strikeouts in 84 1/3 innings this season. A date with the Phillies is next.
Jun 14 - 10:09 PM

Shelby Miller dominated the Blue Jays on Saturday, recording his second career shutout after allowing just three hits and a walk over nine brilliant innings.

Miller struck out five on the afternoon and needed just 105 pitches to complete the gem. While he has been inconsistent at times this season, flashes like this show the true promise and potential that he has in his right arm. He'll bring a 7-5 record, 3.59 ERA and 1.31 WHIP into Saturday's matchup against the Nationals.
Jun 7 - 3:55 PM

Shelby Miller was charged with four runs over seven innings in Monday's loss to the Royals.

Miller pitched better than his final line shows. He held the Royals scoreless for the first six frames before they broke out with three runs in the seventh. Miller then allowed a leadoff single in the eighth before being pulled and watched his runner eventually come around to score. It's the third straight start that he's allowed at least four runs, and his ERA has jumped from 2.79 to 4.06 over that time. Miller has a tough matchup in Toronto this weekend.
