Andrew Miller optioned to Triple-A

After last night's game the Marlins sent Andrew Miller to Triple-A.

After Monday’s 3-2 win over the Padres, the Marlins optioned left-hander Andrew Miller to Triple-A New Orleans.

 Albeit with the All-Star break in between, Miller put together back-to-back starts of 2 2/3 innings, allowing 10 runs (six earned) on 11 hits, seven walks and no strikeouts over the two games.


So Big Game Andrew is Big Easy bound.

Apparently the Incredible Hurk pitched himself past the number 5 spot in the rotation to at least the number 4 spot.  Really not too surprising.  I mean, he did get instruction from one of the best during the offseason.

Miller is hard to figure out, on occasion the looks like he has this pitching thing down.  And on others, he appears to have no clue.  Consistency has always been his problem.  Maybe the time in the minors will help him to develop it.  He has the tools, he just needs the Time-Life Series of books to help him figure out how to use them.

Miller should be back on or before August 1st when the Marlins will need a fifth starter again.  And Miller will be back, because Sean West ain't exactly impressing anyone.  Well, that's not true, I was unbelievably impressed by his last outing, it is an amazing accomplishment to be that talented and pitch that crappy.  But yet, he pulled it off.

No word as yet to who the Marlins will call up.  One thing we know for sure is that the player won't be Andy Gonzalez, since the ten day period hasn't passed.
