Cardinals | Concerned with Shelby Miller's durability
The St. Louis Cardinals were worried about SP Shelby Miller's durability after he reported to camp noticeably trimmer after working hard in the offseason to trim weight and body fat. "Shelby reported to spring training in very good physical condition, having lost weight and with a low body fat, but that was not necessarily a goal that he was given heading into the offseason," farm director John Vuch said. "Now that he's back with our strength and conditioning staff, they're making sure the plan he's following is geared toward ensuring he's getting in peak shape for baseball purposes. Once he's back in his normal baseball condition, durability shouldn't be a concern, and our medical staff feels that he should be where he needs to be by the time the season opens." Miller weighed 195 pounds last year.
