Diamondbacks | Shelby Miller roughed up again

Tue, 24 May 2016 19:48:23 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller dropped to 1-6 on the season after losing his start Tuesday, May 24, opposite the Pittsburgh Pirates. He went five innings, yielding six runs on eight hits and four walks. He also struck out three.

Fantasy Tip: Miller's disastrous first season in Arizona continues. He was actually doing better in May, holding a 4.71 ERA for the month before tonight's assignment. Now, he owns a 7.09 ERA for the year, while also having almost as many walks (29) as strikeouts (30) in 45 2/3 total innings. Miller can't be trusted in any format right now and owners should wait until he can finally get into a rhythm.

Diamondbacks | Shelby Miller earns first win

Sat, 07 May 2016 22:45:23 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller picked up his first victory of the season Saturday, May 7, in a 4-2 win over the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Before you get too excited about Miller winning this game, consider one thing. Miller had an 8.49 ERA entering the game after giving up 22 runs in his first 23 1/3 innings. Miller had some hard luck in Atlanta with the Braves, but he has struggled as well in Arizona. One win won't dramatically raise his fantasy value.

Diamondbacks | Shelby Miller won't be skipped

Tue, 03 May 2016 14:36:56 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller will not have his next start skipped and won't be sent down to the minors, according to manager Chip Hale.

Fantasy Tip: Miller (0-3, 8.49 ERA, 7.3 BB/9) certainly isn't this bad, but we warned you that he'd regress in 2016 with the move to the desert. Bad mechanics are playing a role, and you probably don't want to sell low at this point. Ride him out and keep him benched for now, although a matchup against his former team in the weak-hitting Braves could be the beginning of a turnaround.

Diamondbacks | Shelby Miller's mechanics out of whack

Mon, 02 May 2016 10:46:15 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller's delivery seems out of whack this year compared to last. His delivery has always featured him driving down low with his back, with his arm slinging across his legs. However, his pitching hand was parallel with his knees last year, and this year it's ending up lower. The D-backs have won only two of his six starts.

Fantasy Tip: Miller's start with Arizona has been disastrous, and he's gone at least five innings just three times in his six starts with an 8.49 ERA in six starts. Miller is a candidate to drop in shallow mixed leagues if he wasn't already. Bench him everywhere else and hope he gets his mechanics sorted out in short order.

Diamondbacks | Early exit for Shelby Miller

Sun, 01 May 2016 18:35:09 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller allowed three runs on four hits while walking four and striking out three over 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Colorado Rockies Sunday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Miller isn't as bad as his 8.49 ERA suggests, but he isn't a fantasy ace either. If he has been cut loose in your league, it doesn’t hurt to stash him to see if he can figure things out and become a solid No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy starter.

Diamondbacks | Shelby Miller bombed by old mates

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 23:45:49 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller allowed five earned runs, five hits and four walks with six strikeouts over five innings in a loss Tuesday, April 26, against the St. Louis Cardinals, his former team.

Fantasy Tip: Miller's ERA slipped to 8.69 on the season. He worked four scoreless innings before getting hammered for five runs in the fifth inning. He can no longer be trusted in any fantasy format until he strings together a good start or two.

Diamondbacks | Shelby Miller on track to start

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 15:15:25 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller (finger) is on schedule to make his next start Tuesday, April 26, as he continues to work on his delivery. However, manager Chip Hale said "things can change."

Fantasy Tip: Boy has Miller been a disappointment to start off the year. He sports an 8.59 ERA and hasn't gone past the second inning in his last two starts after having control problems and scraping his knuckles on the ground during his follow-through. He's a candidate to be dropped in standard mixed leagues, and you should be very hesitant to use him in deep mixed and NL-only leagues his next time out.

Diamondbacks | Another early exit for Shelby Miller

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 14:41:50 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller (finger) left in the third inning due to a bout of wildness against the San Francisco Giants Thursday, April 21. It might've been the second start in a row that Miller scraped his pitching hand on the mound on his follow through, too.

Fantasy Tip: That's two starts in a row that Miller has put his fantasy owners in a bad spot. He gave up just one hit and two earned runs while walking five and striking out one in just two innings Thursday. We warned you that Miller was in for negative regression with his ERA and WHIP after joining the D-backs in an offseason trade. In shallow mixed leagues, dumping Miller isn't out of the question.

Diamondbacks | Shelby Miller on track for start

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 15:49:31 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller (finger) is on track to make his next start Thursday, April 21, opposite the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Miller sustained an odd cut in his last start that caused him to leave early in the ballgame, but it looks like he'll be good to go for his next assignment. Even so, it's hard to trust Miller right now, as he owns an ugly 8.53 ERA and 1.82 WHIP through his first three outings, while having not produced any quality starts within that span. At the very least, he'll be working from a pitcher's park in San Francisco, so hopefully he'll be able to get into a groove after Arizona surrendered so much of their future just to acquire his services.

Diamondbacks | Shelby Miller to make next start

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 17:10:24 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller (finger) will be able to make his start against the San Francisco Giants Thursday, April 21, after exiting his start Saturday, April 16, with cuts on his right index finger.

Fantasy Tip: Miller is off to a terrible start with his new team. You have no choice but to stick with him in season-long formats, but he needs to be avoided in DFS play until he turns things around.
