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.
Jul 25 - 9:31 PM

Shelby Miller logged another quality start in Sunday's loss to the Cubs, surrendering three runs (one earned) on four hits over his six frames.

The right-hander racked up eight strikeouts on the afternoon while issuing four free passes. A victim of poor run support, Miller has compiled a 3.17 ERA over 65 2/3 innings in his last 11 starts and has a grand total of zero wins to show for his effort. Now 5-6 on the season, he'll carry a terrific 2.33 ERA and 1.16 WHIP into Saturday's matchup against the Cardinals in St. Louis.

Shelby Miller was knocked around for a season-high five runs over five innings in a loss to the Rockies on Friday.

Miller gave up a season-high 11 hits, including a home run from Carlos Gonzalez. The big blow was a three-run fourth inning, which noticeably frustrated him. Miller struck out seven and walked one in the loss. While he still owns a fine 2.38 ERA on the year, he's winless over his last 10 starts. Most of that has been about a lack of run support. He'll hope to break that streak coming out of the All-Star break.
Jul 11 - 12:44 AM

Shelby Miller's 6 1/3 scoreless innings went to waste as the Braves lost in 10 innings to the Phillies on Sunday.

Miller scattered seven hits and two walks while striking out eight, nearly matching opposing starter Cole Hamels in zeroes. He left with a runner on second base and one out in the seventh as Luis Avilan relieved him, and the Phillies were again kept off the board. Miller, despite pitching tremendously, hasn't gotten a win since May 17. He's 5-4 with a 2.07 ERA, a 1.10 WHIP, and an 88/34 K/BB ratio in 108 2/3 innings. Miller will start at Coors Field against the Rockies next.
Jul 5 - 4:54 PM

Shelby Miller was ineffective in a loss to the Nationals on Tuesday, serving up five runs (four earned) over five innings.

Miller did strike out a season-high 10 batters, but allowed eight hits and three walks. The Nats scored four of their five runs in the first inning, and tacked on that fifth run in the third inning thanks to an A.J. Pierzynski throwing error. Miller has only twice in 16 starts allowed four-plus runs, but both have occurred in June. He still owns an outstanding 2.20 ERA with a 1.07 WHIP and an 80/32 K/BB ratio over 102 1/3 innings. Miller will face a low-scoring Phillies lineup at home his next turn through the rotation.
Jun 30 - 10:34 PM

Shelby Miller got a no-decision, limiting the Nationals to one run over seven innings as the Braves dropped Wednesday's contest 2-1 in 11 innings.

Miller and opposing starter Jordan Zimmermann were trading zeroes until the seventh inning, when Miller relented a run on a Bryce Harper single. It was one of only three hits allowed on the night along with a walk and five strikeouts. Despite a 5-3 record, Miller ranks as an early Cy Young candidate with a 1.94 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and a 70/29 K/BB ratio over 97 1/3 innings. He'll get the Nationals again next week, this time at home.
Jun 24 - 10:28 PM

Shelby Miller surrendered four runs -- one earned -- and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the Red Sox.

Miller is up to six straight starts without a win, though he's had just one poor outing in that span. Unless maybe you'd like to count this one as poor. He allowed just one run through five before giving up five hits in a three-run sixth. All of the runs were unearned because Juan Uribe dropped a foul popup before Mookie Betts' single.
Jun 18 - 11:34 PM

Shelby Miller threw a quality start in a no-decision against the Mets on Saturday, allowing three runs (two earned) on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Miller pitched well, but he was facing off with an on-fire Jacob deGrom and received almost no offensive support. A late rally by the Braves would take him off the hook for a potential loss, though, and in fact, the Braves would ultimately win the game 5-3 in 11 innings. All three runs against Miller scored in the seventh inning when Travis d'Arnaud hit an RBI single (two runs came in, though the second scored on an error) and Lucas Duda rapped an RBI double. Miller struck out four and walked two over the course of the game. He'll bring a strong 2.02 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 61/28 K/BB ratio over 84 2/3 innings into his next start, a home tilt against the Red Sox.
Jun 13 - 8:00 PM

Shelby Miller stymied the Padres, giving up just one run in seven innings, but the Braves' bullpen left him with a no-decision and contributed to an 11-inning loss on Monday.

Miller allowed a second-inning RBI double to Corey Spangenberg, but that was it for offense for the Padres until the right-hander exited the game. He scattered five hits and a walk while striking out six. Miller continues to rank, quietly, among the game's best starters, owning a 1.84 ERA with a 0.98 WHIP and a 57/25 K/BB ratio over 78 1/3 innings. Despite pitching well, he hasn't won since May 17. He will try to change that versus the Mets at Citi Field in his next outing.
Jun 8 - 11:09 PM

Shelby Miller got a no-decision in his worst outing of the season, surrendering four runs in 4 1/3 innings to the Diamondbacks as the Braves lost on Tuesday.

Miller entered the game with the best ERA among starters at 1.48, but the D'Backs didn't much care. The right-hander struggled mightily with control, walking six while giving up six hits and striking out only two. The control problems aren't enough to warrant concern, but fantasy owners should have known Miller wouldn't keep it up all season long. He still has a 1.89 ERA with a 1.00 WHIP and a 51/24 K/BB ratio over 71 1/3 innings. Miller will try to bounce back in a home start versus the Padres.
Jun 3 - 1:10 AM

Shelby Miller was slapped with the tough-luck loss on Thursday, yielding just one run over seven innings in a 7-0 loss to the Giants.

Miller was scarcely in danger. Oh, except for that seventh inning Brandon Belt homer. Chris Heston was dealing across the bump, ensuring that Miller's record would drop to 5-2. The youngster, who struck out one and walked none tonight, has proven to be everything the Braves could have asked for and more, posting a 1.48 ERA and 0.88 WHIP across 10 starts.
May 29 - 1:27 AM

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

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.
