Indians manager Terry Francona said today that reliever Andrew Miller could be activated from the disabled list on Thursday.

Miller has been out since August 22 with patella tendinitis, but he made it through a 30-pitch simulated game yesterday without a hitch. Francona said Miller will either throw another simulated game Thursday or pitch in a real game, so he’s good to go.

Obviously the Indians have been OK without Miller — they’re 19-2 since he went down — but getting him back would be a nice thing given that, before he was hurt, he posted a 1.65 ERA and 79/17 K/BB ratio in 54.2 innings.
