We’re hearing rumblings out of Philly that an update on Chase Utley’s knee is going to come this morning. I’m hearing non-specific rumblings that it’s not going to be great news.
No idea if that’s reliable or not — people are kind of freaking, so it may be hyperbole — but we’ll obviously update it when we hear something.
UPDATE: The Indians have placed Miller on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.
8:46 AM: Indians reliever Andrew Miller left last night’s game against the Cubs with left hamstring tightness.
Miller threw just two pitches before clutching his leg and leaving the field. He’s day-to-day for now — and manager Terry Francona noted that he had a similar injury a few years back and only missed a few days — but hamstring injuries can be anywhere from annoying to serious, so nothing definitive will be said by the club until he undergoes an MRI. Given how critical he is to the Indians, who are likely postseason bound, figure that the team will err on the side of caution with a DL sting regardless.
Miller has yet to allow a run in ten innings of work.
