Shelby Miller surrendered five runs in five innings Monday in a loss to the Marlins.

Miller had Giancarlo Stanton problems tonight, giving up two homers to the NL's premier slugger. If that were all of it, he still could have turned in an adequate outing. However, he gave up six more hits, three of them for extra bases. It was a bad time for his worst outing in six weeks, but he should be better next time out against the Padres.

Shelby Miller pitched seven innings and yielded one run Wednesday in a no-decision against the Red Sox.

Miller appeared to have another inning left in him -- he was at just 88 pitches -- but the Cardinals needed to pinch-hit for him in the bottom of the seventh. Miller has allowed five runs over 18 2/3 innings since rejoining the rotation on July 26. The competition hasn't been the greatest, but he's throwing better now than he was earlier this year.
Aug 7 - 12:54 AM

Shelby Miller pitched six strong innings, allowing two runs and three hits, Thursday in a victory over the Padres.

The runs came on homers from Jedd Gyorko and Will Venable in the second inning. Apart from that, Miller faced just one batter over the minimum, striking out five and walking none. That's two pretty encouraging outings for him since he was restored to the rotation, albeit coming against weak offenses. If he's available in your mixed league and you have an open bench spot, it wouldn't be a bad idea to give him another try.
Jul 31 - 7:14 PM

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.
Jun 29 - 8:05 PM

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.
