I'm hoping it's the same thing that was up with Clayton Kershaw.

If Miller falters, maybe the guy(Carlos Martinez--although both Wainwright and Wacha did well) who pitched the best in spring training could be given a shot to start... but realistically Miller wasn't that bad, his problem was allowing strings of hits to result in a probably more runs than he should have reasonably expected for his performance, along with 3 homeruns instead of the expected 1.5 he should have allowed. I didn't see anything in his two performances that I saw, that indicated he was having problems, he wasn't getting hit hard nor was he struggling any more per batter than he did last year. I guess the concern could be he hasn't really improved his ability to reduce pitches per batter in any noticeable way.

note: I'm not saying to go by spring training stats to give Martinez a job, but coming into the camp, Martinez/Kelly were pretty much even as pitchers and Martinez outpitched Kelly. (I understand the decision made to not make Martinez a starter and even somewhat agree with it, but Martinez should still get around 110 innings pitched this year)
