Shelby Miller

  1. Shelby Miller is confused about why the Cardinals didn’t use him in the playoffs

    Oct 31, 2013, 1:18 PM EDT

    shelby miller getty

    Shelby Miller was one of the best rookies in baseball this season, throwing 173 innings with a 3.06 ERA and 169 strikeouts while winning 15 games, but the 22-year-old right-hander was a non-factor for the Cardinals during the playoffs and appeared in just one game as a mop-up reliever. After the Game 6 loss last…

  2. Cardinals will be back … and often

    It’s going to be a somber plane ride back to St. Louis for the Cardinals following Wednesday night’s World Series ouster at Fenway Park, but these birds will be playing on big stages for years and years to come. There may not be a team in baseball that is better-poised for an extended run of…

  3. The Cardinals’ pitchers throw so hard they broke Yadier Molina’s mitt

    Cardinals pitching staffs of the past, particularly under former pitching coach Dave Duncan, were famous for the prodigious rate at which they generated ground balls. The 2013 staff, however, will be known for young arm after young arm hitting the upper 90’s and even the 100’s on the radar gun. When closer Trevor Rosenthal shut…

  4. Do the Red Sox or the Cardinals have the World Series pitching edge?

    Oct 21, 2013, 2:10 PM EDT

    Adam Wainwright

    This postseason has been dominated by pitching, so who has the arms advantage in the World Series? During the regular season the Red Sox ranked sixth among AL teams in runs allowed and the Cardinals ranked fifth among NL teams in runs allowed, but overall totals can be misleading when it comes to evaluating the…

  5. Cardinals’ forgotten man Shelby Miller trying stay ready

    Oct 21, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Colorado Rockies v St. Louis Cardinals

    Despite an excellent rookie season in which he won 15 games with a 3.06 ERA and 169 strikeouts in 173 innings Shelby Miller has been a forgotten man for the Cardinals in the playoffs, as St. Louis shifted him to the bullpen in favor of Joe Kelly/Lance Lynn and has used him just once as…

  6. Allen Craig runs, takes another round of live BP

    Allen Craig — who has been sidelined since early September with a Lisfranc injury — is hoping to be available as a DH and pinch-hitter for the Cardinals in their World Series matchup with the Red Sox. Craig went through a workout on Friday morning at Busch Stadium in St. Louis and reported feeling fine.…

  7. Looking ahead to the World Series

    Oct 20, 2013, 12:40 AM EDT

    NLCS - Los Angeles Dodgers v St Louis Cardinals

    The Cardinals and Red Sox will open up the 2013 World Series in Boston on Wednesday night, a rematch of the 2004 World Series ultimately taken by the Sox in four games. The two teams are, both by their regular season records and various statistical measures, the best teams from their respective leagues. Let’s go…

  8. Cardinals name Lance Lynn as Game 4 starter

    Lance Lynn Getty

    Cardinals manager Mike Matheny announced this morning that right-hander Lance Lynn will start Game 4 of the NLCS against the Dodgers, reports Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. Lynn was the winning pitcher in Game 1 last night after he tossed two innings of scoreless relief. Shelby Miller was the other candidate to start…

  9. Cardinals announce NLCS rotation, with Joe Kelly in Game 1

    Oct 10, 2013, 2:46 PM EDT

    joe kelly cardinals getty

    During the regular season Joe Kelly went from reliever to fill-in starter for the Cardinals, pitching so well that he grabbed a full-time spot, and now he’s starting Game 1 of the NLCS. St. Louis announced its rotation with Kelly in Game 1, followed by Michael Wacha in Game 2 and Adam Wainwright in Game…

  10. Adam Wainwright will need to come up huge again in NLCS

    Oct 10, 2013, 12:18 AM EDT

    Division Series - Pittsburgh Pirates v St Louis Cardinals - Game Five

    While they do have the advantage of staying home in St. Louis, the Cardinals won’t have long to rest following their NLDS victory on Wednesday night. The Dodgers are coming to town on Friday, and they’re bringing their aces. The Cardinals’ rotation is in flux after their five-game series, but the Dodgers face no such…

  11. Cardinals leave Shelby Miller out of NLDS rotation

    Oct 4, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Colorado Rockies v St. Louis Cardinals

    Cardinals rookie Shelby Miller was one of the best starters in the National League this season, posting a 3.06 ERA in 31 starts while striking out 169 batters in 173 innings and holding opponents to a .234 batting average. And yet the Cardinals just announced that he’ll spend the entire NLDS in the bullpen, with…

    Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell surveys the field before his team takes on the Baltimore Orioles in an MLB American League baseball game in Baltimore

    We still have one game left that, technically and statistically speaking, belongs to the regular season. But practically speaking — and in our hearts — we are into the playoffs now. Game 163 between the Rays and Rangers is do-or-die and very, very few regular season games can say that. So: toss your technical orthodoxy.…

  13. Pouliot’s postseason award picks: National League

    Sep 30, 2013, 1:51 AM EDT

    Clayton Kershaw

    There’s still one more American League game on Monday, so we’ll have to wait on those selections, which will probably be a bit more controversial than these. Here are my NL award picks for 2013.

  14. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 26, 2013, 7:04 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Minnesota Twins

    Tigers 1, Twins 0: The Tigers finally clinch the AL Central. It was a nail-biter, though, as they scored their lone run in the first inning and then held off the Twins all night long. Best part of their celebration? For the second year in a row Max Scherzer rocked the goggles with two different…

  15. Will 22-year-old right-hander Michael Wacha crack the Cardinals’ postseason rotation?

    Sep 25, 2013, 12:31 AM EDT

    wacha getty

    Beyond ace Adam Wainwright, there isn’t much certainty about which starters the Cardinals will choose to use this postseason. Michael Wacha might have provided some on Tuesday night. Wacha, a 22-year-old first-round pick in 2012, came one out from no-hitting a good Nationals lineup in front of a packed house at Busch Stadium, using a…

  16. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 11, 2013, 7:01 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox  v Tampa Bay Rays

    Red Sox 2, Rays 0: Welcome back Clay Buchholz. It’s like you never left. Or at least the early-season version of you never left. Five shutout innings with six strikeouts before making way for a bullpen that was just as stingy. The Red Sox lead in the East is 8.5 games. Padres 8, Phillies 2:…

  17. Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

    Aug 25, 2013, 8:54 AM EDT

    shelby miller getty

    It only seems right to use this space to update the situation in the National League Central — baseball’s tightest divisional race by far here in late 2013. Shelby Miller allowed just three hits and one earned run over seven innings and Carlos Beltran slugged his 23rd home run of the season Saturday as the…

  18. Jose Fernandez does it again: seven scoreless versus Rockies

    Aug 24, 2013, 9:53 PM EDT

    Jose Fernandez

    Jose Fernandez furthered his Rookie of the Year case Saturday, hurling seven scoreless innings versus the Rockies to improve to 10-5 on the season. A.J. Ramos and Steve Cishek finished the 3-0 shutout. Fernandez has overtaken Shelby Miller, Julio Teheran and Hyun-Jin Ryu over the last couple of months to head the rookie class of…

    Yankees' Soriano points as he crosses home plate in the fifth inning of their MLB American League baseball game the Angels in New York

    Yankees 11, Angels 3: Holy cow, Alfonso Soriano. Two homers and seven RBI. The old guy has four homers, six runs scored and 13 RBI in his last two games. The Yankees have won four straight. Reds 5, Cubs 0: Seven shutout innings from Bronson Arroyo helps the Redlegs snag the three-game sweep. My friend Mark,…

  20. Shelby Miller doesn’t expect to miss a start

    Shelby Miller Getty

    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…

    Alejandro De Aza,

    All kinds of comebacks on Wednesday. Let’s call it “Comeback Wednesday!” — wait, what? Really? OK, sorry folks. The people in the marketing department said that’s impossibly lame. They’re working on something centering around the idea of “Extreme Comebacks” but they want to focus group it first. We’ll let you know. White Sox 6, Yankees…

  22. Shelby Miller leaves game after taking liner off elbow

    Aug 7, 2013, 8:37 PM EDT

    shelby miller getty

    Cardinals star rookie Shelby Miller was removed in the first inning of his start Wednesday night against the Dodgers after taking a line drive off his throwing elbow from Dodgers leadoff man Carl Crawford. It was just the second pitch of the evening. Miller grabbed his right elbow and hunched over on the front of…

    Jul 24, 2013, 7:07 AM EDT

    Cleveland Indians v Seattle Mariners

    Mariners 4, Indians 3: The M’s just keep on winning. That’s eight in a row, with this one ending interestingly. The Indians had runners on the corners with no one out in the ninth. Then Drew Stubbs got caught in a rundown he probably shouldn’t have gotten caught in between third and home, ending the…

    With a 10-game winning streak, the Blue Jays are the hottest team in baseball. But here comes Texas. The Rangers tallied four runs on eight hits Saturday against Cardinals youngster Shelby Miller and got a promising outing from Martin Perez, winning 4-2 in the second game of a three-game set at Busch Stadium in downtown…
