Indians activate Andrew Miller

1 Comment

The Cleveland Indians have activated reliever Andrew Miller from the 10-day disabled list.

Miller has missed four weeks with patellar tendinitis in his right knee. When he went down he was posting a 1.65 ERA and 79/17 K/BB ratio in 54.2 innings. His absence has not exactly been a big problem, of course — have you heard that the Indians have won 21 consecutive straight games? — but having him back will no doubt be a good thing.

The Indians will lose again eventually. It’d be kinda funny if they did so because the most dominant reliever in baseball over the past couple of seasons had a meltdown or something. Not saying Miller would find it funny, but I bet his teammates would roast him pretty good for it.
