The Arizona Diamondbacks are placing righthander Shelby Miller on the disabled list.
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.
