Report: Diamondbacks placing Shelby Miller (finger) on DL
The Arizona Diamondbacks are placing righthander Shelby Miller on the disabled list, reports Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal.
The move is a response to discomfort Miller has been feeling in a finger on his right hand.
The 25-year-old has had a disappointing season thus far, posting a 1–6 record with a 7.09 ERA in 10 appearances. Rumors had previously circulated that Miller was headed for the minor leagues.
In his five-year MLB tenure, Miller has posted a 33–41 record with a 3.51 ERA and 513 strikeouts. He has also played for the Atlanta Braves and St. Louis Cardinals during his career.
Miller was an All-Star last season for the Braves.
Arizona is expected to officially make the changes to its roster on Friday.
