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.
