Cardinals' Andrew Miller: Struggles continue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (5-6) allowed four runs on two hits and a walk while striking out one in one-third of an inning to take the loss against the Cubs on Friday.

Miller also hit a batter. It was a horrendous start to what became a seven-run inning after Ryan Helsley had no better luck containing the Cubs' offense. Miller has now allowed five runs in his last two appearances, raising his ERA for the year to 4.50 with a 1.31 WHIP.

Cardinals' Andrew Miller: Blows save Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller struck out two batters in one inning against Arizona on Tuesday but he was charged with a blown save due to allowing a game-tying solo home run.

Miler was summoned in the ninth inning to protect a one-run lead but couldn't come through, serving up a solo shot to Ildemaro Vargas to push the game into extra innings. It was Miller's fifth blown save in 11 opportunities this season, though he does rank second in the National League with 28 holds.

Cardinals' Andrew Miller: Secures sixth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller allowed a hit in a scoreless ninth inning Sunday, striking out one batter and earning the save over the Cubs.

Miller allowed a two-out single to Jason Heyward but still managed to close things out with relative ease for his first save since Aug. 19. He blew his first two save opportunities this month but has snagged six holds, giving him 28 on the year.

Cardinals' Andrew Miller: Fifth win of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (5-5) was credited with the win in an extra-inning victory over the Cubs on Thursday, firing a scoreless two-thirds of an inning during which he didn't allow any hits or walks and did not record a strikeout.

Miller was called on to snuff out a Carlos Martinez-authored threat in the bottom of the ninth, and he was mostly effective in doing so. The veteran southpaw did surrender an RBI groundout to Jason Heyward that knotted the game at 4-4 , a run charged to Martinez. By subsequently inducing an inning-ending flyout from Nico Hoerner, Miller indirectly positioned himself as the pitcher of record and subsequently notched his first victory since July 26, a string of 19 appearances prior to Friday. It's been an eventful month for Miller, who's recorded five holds and Thursday's win but also allowed five runs (four earned) across 5.2 innings over eight September appearances.

Cardinals' Andrew Miller: Grabs hold despite wildness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller was credited with his 25th hold in a win over the Rockies on Thursday, firing a scoreless two-thirds of an inning during which he issued a walk, uncorked a wild pitch, hit a batter and recorded two strikeouts.

Miller's rather eventful scoreless relief outing nevertheless garnered him yet another hold, although he needed Carlos Martinez to bail him out of a mess after the closer came on with two on and one out in the seventh. Miller put Nolan Arenado and Charlie Blackmon on base via a walk and hit by pitch, then advanced both runners courtesy of a wild pitch. The veteran southpaw may already have three holds in September, but he's been far from sharp, allowing four earned runs across the two innings he's logged over four appearances.

Cardinals' Andrew Miller: Closer candidate to open '20?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller could be a candidate for the closer's role to open the 2020 season if Carlos Martinez is able to secure a spot in the starting rotation during spring training, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

The left-handed veteran has plenty of ninth-inning experience, having recorded 58 saves over 71 opportunities across the last six seasons. However, Miller only served as a closer in an extended capacity during one of those years, a memorable 2015 campaign in which he converted 36 of 38 save chances for the Yankees. Miller could end up in a ninth-inning platoon with John Gant or Giovanny Gallegos over the first few months of the 2020 season if Martinez returns to starting and Jordan Hicks (elbow) isn't available until midseason, as expected.

Cardinals' Andrew Miller: Records four-out save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller issued a walk over 1.1 scoreless innings Monday, striking out a batter and earning his fifth save against the Brewers.

Miller had his stuff working Monday as the only batter to reach base against him was Christian Yelich who earned an intentional walk. The 34-year-old lefty is now 5-of-7 in save chances to go along with his 19 holds. He should continue getting a few save opportunities here and there based on matchups.

Cardinals' Andrew Miller: Yields homer in save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller allowed one run on one hit with a strikeout during the ninth inning in an 11-9 victory to earn a save against the Pirates on Sunday.

The 34-year-old allowed his ninth homer, bumping his HR/9 to 2.1, but fortunately for the Cardinals, this home run didn't change the outcome of the game. Miller isn't the same dominating pitcher he once was, and he's been struggling lately, allowing three runs in his last 2.1 innings. He is 4-4 with four saves, 3.92 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 54 strikeouts in 39 innings this season.

Cardinals' Andrew Miller: Nabs fourth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (4-4) was credited with the win in a victory over the Astros on Friday, walking one and striking out one over a third of an inning.

Miller was handed the unenviable task of negotiating a two-out, bases-loaded jam with the score knotted at 2-2 when he entered in the top of the eighth inning. While the free pass he issued to the first batter he faced, Michael Brantley, brought home a run that was charged to John Gant, Miller then recorded a clutch swinging strikeout of Carlos Correa with an 85 mph slider to escape the frame without further damage. Paul Goldschmidt's subsequent three-run homer in the home half of the inning eventually made Miller the pitcher of record, extending his successful July. Factoring in Friday's appearance, Miller boasts a 1-1 mark, two saves, six holds and a 2.00 ERA across the nine innings he's logged this month.

Cardinals' Andrew Miller: Enjoying stellar month
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller, who pitched a perfect ninth inning for his third save in a win over the Pirates on Tuesday, now has a 2.45 ERA, five holds and two saves overall across 7.1 innings over 10 appearances in July.

The veteran southpaw has notably logged two of his five save chances for the season within his last four appearances, and he would seemingly be in line for more high-leverage work if he continues performing in similarly strong fashion. Miller has turned in scoreless efforts in 11 of his last 13 trips to the mound overall, a stretch during which he's coaxed his ERA down from 4.38 to 3.74. While the latter figure remains much more reminiscent of those he generated during the early portion of his career as opposed to more recent seasons, it's still an improvement over his 4.24 showing during an inconsistent final Indians campaign in 2018.

Cardinals' Andrew Miller: Picks up second save of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller picked up the save against the Reds on Thursday, working around one hit to toss a scoreless ninth inning and close out a 7-4 victory for the Cardinals. He struck out one and walked none.

It was the second save in four opportunities for the left-hander, who is now sporting a 3.86 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP and a 45:13 K:BB over 30.1 innings. Carlos Martinez has been acting as the primary role for the Cardinals, so Miller doesn't figure to be seeing opportunities like this very frequently, aside from days where Martinez is getting a rest.

Cardinals' Andrew Miller: Settling in during May
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller has generated five scoreless efforts in his last six appearances and owns a 2.25 ERA across eight May outings overall.

Miller endured a rocky first month-plus in his new Cardinals digs, as his ERA stood at 5.56 entering the current month. However, the veteran seems to finally be hitting his stride, even though he does have both a loss and a blown save in May. Those two hiccups aside, Miller has been effective more often than not, and he's also picked up his second win and seventh hold over that span. Jordan Hicks, who's endured some inconsistency recently in his own right, remains the primary closer, but Miller is also a ninth-inning option for manager Mike Shildt.

Cardinals' Andrew Miller: Falters in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (1-2) struck out one and allowed one run on three hits over one inning in a loss to the Pirates on Friday.

Miller ultimately took the fall for the narrow defeat, as he failed to preserve a 1-1 tie when called on in the eighth inning. The veteran southpaw surrendered a trio of singles to Cole Tucker, Keith Newman and Starling Marte, the latter plating what would eventually prove to be the winning run. Miller's ERA (5.40) and WHIP (1.73) both have plenty of room for improvement, and he's now allowed at least one earned run in seven of his 18 appearances thus far in 2019.

Cardinals' Andrew Miller: Secures first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller earned the save against the Nationals by recording one strikeout and not allowing a baserunner over two-thirds of an inning.

With regular closer Jordan Hicks unavailable after working the last three games, Miller was called upon in the ninth inning with one out and the tying run on first base. Miller promptly struck out Adam Eaton and got Victor Robles to pop out. The 33-year-old has endured an up-and-down first month of the season and has a 5.56 ERA, 1.76 WHIP and 16:9 K:BB through 11.1 innings.

April 24, 2019 03:56 PM
Cardinals' Andrew Miller: Nabs first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (1-1) fired a scoreless eighth inning in which he allowed no hits or walks and recorded two strikeouts during a win over the Brewers on Tuesday.

Miller bounced back after consecutive rocky outings during which he'd allowed an earned run in each. The 33-year-old has endured some inconsistency to open his first Cardinals campaign, surrendering at least one run in five of 12 appearances. Although Miller has generated scoreless efforts in five of his last seven trips to the mound, he's blown the only save opportunity he's seen this season and is clearly the setup option in front of closer Jordan Hicks for the foreseeable future.

Cardinals' Andrew Miller: Three straight scoreless efforts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller, who allowed a hit over a scoreless ninth inning during which he struck out the side in a win over the Dodgers on Thursday, has now generated three consecutive scoreless appearances.

The veteran reliever raised some eyebrows after allowing four runs (two earned) on two hits over two-thirds of an inning against the Padres last Saturday, surrendering his second and third home runs of the season in the process. That outing also marked the third time in five appearances that Miller had yielded at least one earned run, but he appears to be hitting his stride again. He has a pair of scoreless frames on his resume over his last three trips to the mound, and his ability to miss bats Thursday was a welcome sight. However, with Jordan Hicks handling the closer's role for the moment, Miller's sole save opportunity thus far was the aforementioned meltdown against San Diego.

Cardinals' Andrew Miller: Struggles again in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (0-1) allowed four runs (two earned) on two hits and two walks across two-thirds of an inning in a loss to the Padres on Saturday. He was also charged with his first blown save.

It was another nightmare outing for Miller, who allowed a pair of two-run home runs to Austin Hedges and Manny Machado in the eighth that would prove to be the difference in the game. Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports it was the first time Miller had allowed multiple home runs in an appearance since 2015. The veteran southpaw has now given up at least one run in three of five appearances, and he's seen a spike in hard contact allowed overall in the early going. Factoring in Saturday's outing. Miller has allowed an exit velocity of 95 mph or more on six of the 12 balls that have been put in play against him.

Cardinals' Andrew Miller: Used in setup role during loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller was credited with a hold in a loss to the Brewers on Sunday, allowing an earned run on two hits and a walk over an inning. He also recorded a strikeout.

Miller notably was called on with two outs in the seventh and a man on, and he immediately ran into trouble by walking Christian Yelich and yielding a pair of RBI singles to Ryan Braun and Travis Shaw. The veteran left-hander was smooth the rest of the way and handed closer Jordan Hicks a one-run lead the young right-hander eventually squandered. Miller has now given up an earned run in each of his first two outings of the season, but he figures to log the occasional save opportunity in addition to the setup work he saw Sunday.

March 22, 2019 06:44 PM
Cardinals' Andrew Miller: Another rocky outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller hit two batters and also issued a walk before being pulled after recording just two outs Thursday.

This marks the third time this spring that Miller has failed to complete an inning of work. As a result, he has a bloated 11.81 ERA and 1.88 WHIP across 5.1 innings. Given his track record and previous slow spring starts, there is no need for full-blown panic.

March 19, 2019 12:12 AM
Cardinals' Andrew Miller: Scuffling in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller sports a 13.50 ERA across 4.2 spring innings as a result of allowing seven earned runs on five hits and four walks.

The veteran has also recorded seven strikeouts, so he's missed some bats along the way as well. Despite his unsightly spring line, Miller naturally brings a well-established track record built up over the last seven seasons in particular. Consequently, the 33-year-old projects as the left-handed side of a closer tandem with phenom Jordan Hicks, with his the exact workload between the two likely to fluctuate as the season unfolds. Miller's one dominant season as a ninth-inning option came in 2015 with the Yankees, when he converted 36 of 38 save opportunities while posting a 2.04 ERA and 0.86 WHIP over 60 appearances.
