Shelby Miller left his start last night against the Dodgers after he was struck in the right elbow by a comebacker off the bat of Carl Crawford in the first inning, but it looks like the Cardinals dodged a bullet.

While Miller suffered an elbow contusion as the result of being hit, he told Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch today that he doesn’t expect to miss a start. In fact, he said he feels better today than if he had made it through his start like normal.

Assuming no setbacks, Miller will be ready to start in a big series against the first-place Pirates next week in St. Louis. As Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com notes, the Cardinals are arranging their rotation against the Cubs this weekend so that ace Adam Wainwright will open the series against the Bucs. That should be a lot of fun.

Miller, 22, is 11-7 with a 2.89 ERA and 132/35 K/BB ratio over 121 innings in his rookie season.

    Wacha is being recalled for the Saturday start against Chicago as well.

    Between that and Martinez’s start tonight the HPGF crowd will be reaching for the Kleenex and lighting up the Camel Light’s a lot over the next 48 hours.
