Atom Miller in the Buffalo News

Unread postby paulcousineau » Sat Jun 23, 2007 9:06 am

Picked up the Buffalo News today in Chautauqua, which contained this great news about Miller:
http://www.buffalonews.com/sports/bisons/story/104859.html

Best part of the piece:
“His stuff was outstanding. His stuff was electric,” Lovullo said. “I had a bird’s-eye view as to why he’s so effective. He’s got a quick arm. You can’t pick up the baseball that well. It gets on you with velocity. His secondary stuff was sharp and down. He’s very close. Now it’s just a matter of building up arm strength and confidence in all of his pitches.”

“He looked great. There’s no concerns,” said Ross Atkins, the Indians’ director of player development. “The plan our doctors and the front office have put in place with [Buffalo trainer] Jeff Desjardins, Torey and ‘Rad’ [pitching coach Scott Radinsky] has worked well because he is ready to go.”


Thought everyone could use some good news after dropping one to the Nats last night.

Will be interesting how the temp bullpen stint goes. While he will pitch out of the bullpen for 3-4 appearances to build arm strength, it also will in a way give the org an opportunity to possibly evaluate him some in the bully and see how he handles it for a potential callup in the pen late in the year (mid-late August).

Anyway, need to get this kid on track. Barring injury, he should be in the Indians rotation next year to start the season. Heck, had he not gone down with an injury, he'd have been called up two weeks ago when Stanford got the call.

I hope that he works out there in the short term. Some players like Carmona just can't pitch with that type of rhythm, they need more of the full scope of the game to work their pitching. Hopefully, Miller will be one of those guys capable of being effective in relief in the short term, and then revert back to starting next year.
