Shelby Miller Newsbeat

Tipsheet: Suffering continues for Miller, D-Backs | Jeff Gordon | stltoday.com

I can’t wait until Miller gets traded for 10 cents on the dollar, has a great year, and people kill the Diamondbacks front office for making another horrible trade.

If there is anybody feeling worse than the shell-shocked Pittsburgh Pirates this morning, it’s poor Shelby Miller.

The former Cardinals pitcher absorbed still another loss Tuesday, falling 5-2 to the Dodgers in Los Angeles. Miller (2-11, 6.89 earned-run average) allowed those five runs on 11 hits in 4 1/3 innings.

The reeling Arizona Diamondbacks are now 4-12 in games he started this season.

“I’m struggling with the loss a little bit,” Miller told reporters after the game. “I’m just kind of tired of losing. It’s just not going good right now. I’m not worried about stuff-wise, just more worried about the outcome. Just trying to go out there and give our team an opportunity to win every time and it hasn’t been going the way I’ve wanted it to.”

Shelby Miller’s demotion likely to delay free agency

Miller can’t complain. Well, he can, but I wouldn’t be sympathetic.

With Shelby Miller scheduled to make at least one more start with Triple-A Reno, it appears the Diamondbacks, whether they intended to or not, will gain an extra year of club control over the right-hander.

Miller, according to sources, has three years, 133 days of major-league service time. Assuming he isn’t promoted to the big leagues Thursday, the most days he could accrue the rest of the season is 38. That would bring him to three years, 171 days, which would be just one short of the number needed to be credited with a full year of service.

In that event, it would mean the soonest Miller could become eligible for free agency is after 2019; he would be eligible for arbitration in each of the next three seasons, assuming he spends the requisite time on the major-league roster in those years.

Report: D-backs making teams aware Shelby Miller ‘is available’

This is a terrible indictment on their decision-making process.
