Shelby Miller yielded two runs over six innings Saturday in a no-decision against the Brewers.
Miller wasn't at his sharpest coming off last weekend's near-no-hitter, but it was still a quality start and the Braves were able to steal a victory in extras. Miller struck out five, walked two, and yielded seven hits. The 24-year-old right-hander will carry an outstanding 5-1 record, 1.50 ERA, and 0.90 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Giants. May 23 - 8:09 PM

Date:

Shelby Miller lost his bid for a no-hitter with two outs in the ninth inning, instead finishing with a two-hit shutout of the Marlins for the win on Sunday.

The Marlins were swinging early and often, resulting in almost nothing but weak contact, which allowed Miller to head into the ninth inning on a minimum of pitches. Justin Bour broke up the no-no with a single up the middle, which was followed by an infield single by Dee Gordon. Miller got Martin Prado to pop out to end the contest. Along with the two hits, Miller walked only one batter while striking out four. It's his second shutout in his last three starts and he's been baseball's best starter thus far over eight starts. Miller owns a 1.33 ERA, a 0.83 WHIP, and a 43/16 K/BB ratio in 54 innings. He'll get a great match-up in his next outing, a home start against the light-hitting Brewers.
May 17 - 3:30 PM

Shelby Miller picked up a no-decision in Monday's win against the Reds, tossing seven innings of one-run ball.

Miller scattered three hits and two walks while striking out eight on 100 pitches. The Reds plated their only run in the second inning when Tucker Barnhart hit a sacrifice fly. The Miller trade with the Cardinals, which cost the Braves Jason Heyward, has certainly worked out as the right-hander has posted a 1.60 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, and a 39/15 K/BB ratio in 45 innings. Miller will try again for his fifth win when he faces the Marlins on the road next.
May 11 - 11:46 PM

Shelby Miller needed only 99 pitches to wrap up a shutout against the Phillies on Tuesday, improving his record to 4-1.

Sure, it was against the Phillies, but a 99-pitch shutout is always impressive. Miller held the Phillies to three hits and a walk while fanning eight. Miller, acquired from the Cardinals in the Jason Heyward trade last November, has done a terrific job in six starts for the Braves, sporting a 1.66 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and a 31/13 K/BB ratio in 38 innings. He'll toe the rubber in Cincinnati against the Reds next.
May 5 - 9:51 PM

Shelby Miller yielded three runs -- two earned -- and struck out nine Thursday against the Reds.

The Braves lost a Miller start for the first time in five outings this year. The nine strikeouts were nice -- he fanned a total of 14 in his first four starts -- but they came with two homers allowed. He's given up three bombs his last two outings after allowing none his first three.
Apr 30 - 10:08 PM

Shelby Miller held the Phillies to two runs over six innings on Saturday, picking up his third win of the season.

Miller struck out three, walked two and allowed three hits. The only blip on the radar came when Ryan Howard hit a two-run home run in the fourth inning. Otherwise, Miller showed a quiet effectiveness over his six innings of work in improving to 3-0, with a 2.05 ERA and 1.09 WHIP across 22 innings. The 25-year-old was pulled with just 71 pitches thrown. If he's able to stay relatively efficient, he'll start to see the later innings soon enough. A home start against the Reds is next on the docket.
Apr 25 - 9:35 PM

Shelby Miller limited the Blue Jays to two runs over six innings on Sunday as he earned his second win of the season.

Miller allowed base runners, giving up five hits, walking three, and hitting a batter, but he was able to limit the Jays to just a pair of runs which came in the sixth inning. The right-hander struck out six on the afternoon as he saw his ERA jump up to 1.69. Miller has racked up only 16 innings in his first three starts, but they've been productive innings. He'll try to go deeper when he takes on the Phillies in a road start next.
Apr 19 - 3:54 PM

Shelby Miller pitched five solid innings, allowing only one run, earning the win as the Braves eked out a 3-2 victory against the Marlins.

The Marlins scraped out their only run against Miller in the third inning on a Christian Yelich ground out. Miller conceded only three hits and a pair of walks while striking out one. He had tossed five scoreless innings against the Fish on Wednesday as well. Miller will try to keep it rolling the next time he toes the rubber against the Blue Jays on the road.
Apr 14 - 12:09 AM

Shelby Miller was lifted after throwing five scoreless innings Wednesday against the Marlins.

Miller had good velocity tonight, but since it took him 97 pitches to get through five, he wasn't in position to get the win in a game in which the Braves didn't score until the seventh. He'll probably need to get used to it.
Apr 8 - 10:12 PM

Shelby Miller allowed just one run and one hit through six innings Sunday against the Pirates.

Miller opened the spring with a 108.00 ERA, so getting all of the way down to his current 3.44 is quite an accomplishment. He's allowed three runs over 18 innings in his last four starts.
Mar 29 - 5:29 PM

Shelby Miller held a Tigers split-squad to one run in five innings Sunday as the Braves won 5-3.

Since giving up four runs in one-third of an inning his first time out, Miller has allowed two runs over 12 innings, lowering his spring ERA from 108.00 to a somewhat more reasonable 4.38.
Mar 22 - 4:17 PM

Shelby Miller, who gave up four runs in one-third of an inning last time out, blanked the Red Sox for four innings on Tuesday.

It wasn't as much of a rebound as the line suggests; it took three double plays and two Red Sox running into outs on the basepaths to get Miller his four scoreless frames. He allowed four hits, walked two and struck out three.
Mar 17 - 4:53 PM

Shelby Miller was pulled after giving up four runs in one-third of an inning Saturday against the Tigers.

A 108.00 ERA wasn't the way Miller wanted to start his spring, but it's just one day. We don't feel very good about him as a fantasy option this year, partly because he figures to get terrible run support. He still has the arm to take a step forward.
Mar 7 - 5:38 PM

Braves acquired RHP Shelby Miller and RHP Tyrell Jenkins from the Cardinals for OF Jason Heyward and RHP Jordan Walden.

The rebuild in Atlanta is apparently underway. Miller took a step back in 2014 after a strong rookie season in 2013, but he is under contractual control through 2018 and owns a promising 3.33 ERA in 370 career major league innings. Jenkins, meanwhile, carries six years of club control. Heyward is currently scheduled to become a free agent following the 2015 campaign.

Shelby Miller couldn't get out of the fourth inning of Wednesday's NLCS Game 4 start against the Giants, allowing three runs on six hits over 3 2/3 innings in a no-decision.

The first batter of the game, Gregor Blanco, sent a ball out to center field that bounced off Jon Jay's glove for a double, an ominous start for the young right-hander. Runners were on base all night -- along with his six hits allowed he also walked two -- and manager Mike Matheny ended his night with two outs in the fourth. With the Cardinals trailing 3-1 in the series, the start may have been Miller's last this postseason. At least he was more visible this year than he was last.
