Tucker pitched two scoreless in GCL today.

 

Good to see a nice outing by Andrew Miller...

 

7 IP 2 H 0 ER 6 SO 2 bb.

 

Lefty relief spect Wade Korpi a nothing great outing, striking out the side in his only inning. (ERA down to 1.93 in AA)

 

Mossison continues his rape with another two hits. (.329/.423/.529)

Now the question is, can Miller string a few good starts together?

 

 

He better, because while this single good game is a step in the right direction, to be a major league starter good outings have to be the norm. As encouraging as it is to see that Miller is even capable of still having this type of game, it's time for him to earn his way to the majors by doing this over and over. Otherwise, we'd bring him back up to the majors only to have him be mediocre and shatter his confidence again.

Well, West is still coming back from an injury. An outing like that will help him more than you may think. Learn some things, correct them, come back and be a better pitcher.

 

 

As for Andrew Miller, I have minimal hopes for him from here on out. I never liked his mechanics, and constantly changing a pitchers delivery is never a good thing. I still believe Miller (more than Maybin) is a product of the Tigers rushing him and ruining a project. I remember Miller had some sort of clause in his contract that he had to be a September call up his first season. Miller was so good at UNC, it's amazing to see how far he has fallen. But the problem is, he really seems unfixable. Maybe a bullpen guy or a #5 in the rotation, but his years when he was thought to be a top of the rotation guy are long gone.

Is think a promotion from AA to AAA might be in order for Miller. Hopefully that isn't rushing him.

 

 

but that was his first really good outing in forever. Miller's got to be handled carefully IMO. This is like a "tear him all the way down and build him back up step by step" kinda guy.

Both Miller and Tucker pitched today....

 

 

Miller in AA went 5 IP, 2 H, 1 R (1 ER), 5 BB, 1 K: 87 pitches - 44 strikes

 

Tucker pitched in relief for High A Jupiter: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 1 R (1 ER), 3 BB, 0 K

 

 

We should combine Miller and Tucker into one super-awesome walk machine. Miller can walk the lefties while Tucker can walk the righties.

Miller had another good start today, three in a row. Last three starts

 

19 IP, 0.94 era (2 ER), .94 whip (10 H, 8 BB), 6.15 K/9 (13 K), 0 HR

 

Can't get any better than that. Hopefully he can keep it up and find his mechanic.

It looks like Andrew MIller is starting to find his groove. We need to keep him in that until it becomes second nature, cause if we call him up to the majors too soon and he suffers a reverse, then its starting the process all over again and there just won't be time left to fix him.
