Report: Miller joining BoSox rotation: The Boston Globe reports Tuesday that the Red Sox are working on a plan in which Triple-A Pawtucket starter Andrew Miller would join the rotation. Miller has a clause in his contract that says he can opt out if not on the major league roster by Wednesday. One of the best pitchers in the International League recently, the Red Sox don't want to lose out on Miller. According to a major league source, Boston would start Miller against the Padres next week, possibly creating a six-man rotation.
Miller pitched 5 1/3 innings on Tuesday night against Triple-A Charlotte and allowed one run on five hits with one walk and 10 strikeouts. He has a 2.47 ERA on the year and has allowed just seven earned runs with 30 strikeouts over his last 30 1/3 innings. There is no word yet when Miller will join Boston, or when his projected debut start will be, but it is expected to come during the June 20-22 series against the Padres in Week 12 (June 20-26). Fantasy owners need to pay close attention to this situation, as Miller would be worth picking up in AL-only formats, at least, if he joins Boston's rotation. Miller could still opt out and look for a rotation spot elsewhere.
Anything here? I would think if he sticks there's some value.
