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.

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.

Shelby Miller allowed two runs over 5 2/3 innings Tuesday in a no-decision as the Cardinals beat the Dodgers 3-2 in Game 4 of the NLDS.

Miller was superb for the first five innings, yielding just three singles, two walks and no runs. Things got hairy in the sixth, though, as back-to-back singles to start off the inning led to a run on a double-play ball. Miller then hit a batter and walked a batter before being pulled and then watched Seth Maness allow an RBI single. Still, the Cards will certainly take the effort and Miller surely earned a start in the NLCS.

Shelby Miller got a quick hook Tuesday, allowing three runs over 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Cubs.

It was an up-and-down start for the right-hander, who struck out eight but also gave up three runs before being pulled. Situation also played a part in his early exit -- with two runners on and Anthony Rizzo, who was already 2-for-2 on the night, up, Cards manager Mike Matheny opted for a left-hander in an important spot. The start was likely Miller's last of the season, leaving his probable final record at 10-9 with a 3.74 ERA. It remains to be seen if Miller will once again disappear when October rolls around.

Shelby Miller yielded two runs (one earned) in six innings of work on Thursday but took a no-decision as the Cardinals needed 13 innings to dispose of the Brewers.

Miller has been on a roll, having allowed just two earned runs over his last four starts spanning 26 innings. He limited the Brewers to five hits without a walk while striking out four. The right-hander is picking up momentum at the right time for the Cardinals. Miller's ERA stands at 3.68 with a 1.26 WHIP and a 119/71 K/BB ratio. He'll face the Cubs at Wrigley Field on Tuesday next.

Shelby Miller held the Rockies to one run in six innings Saturday in the Cardinals' 5-4 win.

He struck out five and walked none, and probably could have gone seven or eight innings but Cardinals manager Mike Matheny pinch-hit Oscar Taveras for him in the bottom of the sixth inning and Taveras came through with an RBI single. Miller has added a sinker to his repertoire -- taught to him by Justin Masterson -- and it's paying major dividends. He has a 1.64 ERA over his last five starts. A home meeting with the Reds is next.

Shelby Miller allowed three hits over seven innings and combined with two relievers on a shutout of the Reds on Monday.

Miller walked none and threw just 81 pitches before coming out. Considering that he was coming off a pair of starts in which he allowed two runs in 14 innings, it's a bit surprising Mike Matheny didn't give him a little more rope tonight, but it probably was for the best. While the Cardinals ended up winning 5-0, it was just 2-0 when Miller departed. Miller looks like he'll be a mixed-league asset the rest of the way.

Shelby Miller spun seven frames of shutout ball but took a no-decision in Wednesday's 1-0 win over the Pirates.

Miller was superb, yielding just three hits, walking three (one intentional) and striking out five. He pitched out of a two-on, one-out jam in his final inning, getting a couple lineouts to keep the game scoreless. The Cardinals eventually won on a walk-off single in the ninth. It's been a bumpy ride for Miller this season, but he's now notched three straight quality starts. He'll try to keep it going next week in Cincinnati.
