Miller shut down

Top prospect Adam Miller’s Minor League season is conceivably over. According to head athletic trainer Lonnie Soloff, Miller will be shut down from throwing for eight weeks after having surgery performed on the middle finger of his right throwing hand Tuesday. After eight weeks, Miller will begin a return-to-throw program in either Winter Haven or Goodyear, so the odds of him coming back in time to rejoin the Bisons are slim.

Last year, Miller suffered a strain on the pulley system in that finger. The hope was that he could come back without surgery. But the strain caused his tendon to sag, and his skin, as a result of rubbing against the baseball so often, developed two hardened calluses and an open hole. Team hand surgeon Dr. Tom Graham decided to perform the surgery to reinforce the pulley system.

Tough blow for the Indians, who hoped Miller could help them this season — either in the rotation or bullpen.

It seems like resting and avoiding surgery usually means “rest, play like crap until you finally realize surgery is needed”

On an unrelated note, it is no coincidence that Betancourt’s ERA continues to stay elevated, along with his fastball.

With the injury history Miller had coming into the season, he was really untouchable when we tried to get a bat or another starter?

Hey Anthony, simple but possibly stupid question. With Choo coming back soon and Francisco playing well and Delucci being Delucci, there might not be much need. But do you think the Indians might come to a place of having interest in grabbing up Lofton again, or do you think that idea is part of the past.

I don’t know if this will help, but I know another guy named Adam Miller, who was supposedly the second-best Jewish baseball player ever from Brush High (after Steve Stone). He lives in Chicago and is in pretty good shape. Also, great clubhouse guy.

Absolutely composed content , appreciate it for entropy.
