It’s Rock Bottom for Shelby Miller

Shelby Miller just started his tenth game of the season. He has, to his name, all of one single quality start. It came a few weeks ago, in Atlanta, where Miller went to work against one of the worst team offenses in recent baseball history. Miller was removed after the six-inning minimum. He racked up one strikeout, to go with a pair of walks. He also hit a guy. That guy was Erick...

The shocking, swift decline of Shelby Miller

The Arizona Diamondbacks have not had the type of year they envisioned back during the course of the winter. Those words have been written and stated verbally in some order and some fashion countless times as we approach the two-month mark of the season.

Robbie Ray Breaking Balls

Has Robbie Ray been unlucky this season? He sports a weirdly high .343 BABIP this season, and a staggering 27.0% line drive percentage — both numbers that few pitchers maintain over the course of a season. Last year, the highest BABIP for a qualified starter was Gio Gonzalez‘s .341 — and even after getting shelled last night, Gonzalez has …

Arizona Diamondbacks: What’s wrong with Shelby Miller?

The only thing worse than the Arizona Diamondbacks’ new uniforms this year has been newcomer Shelby Miller’s numbers. Nine starts into his Diamondbacks career, Miller ranks in the bottom five in ERA (6.64), WHIP (1.80) and walk rate (13.2%) among all starting pitchers. That’s not exactly what general manager Dave Stewart had in mind when he traded a proven major league outfielder...
