Greg Miller Reinjures Arm

A reinjury has caused the shutdown of lefthander Greg Miller in the Arizona Fall League, putting his comeback on hold, at least for the time being.

Miller returned to action this summer after almost two years of being sidelined by the problems in his left shoulder. He worked his way up from the Gulf Coast League to the Florida State, then to the Southern League, throwing the ball very well on each occasion.

That prompted the Dodgers to send him to Arizona with the idea of keeping him in short relief to make him a situational lefty in Los Angeles next season if his progress continued.

Instead, he's been bothered by further aches so he's being sent to the Jobe-Kerlan Clinic in Los Angeles for more evaluation.

This is the latest change in Dodger pitching plans for the Fall League. Originally, righthanders Chad Billingsley and Edwin Jackson were to join Miller as the three pitchers the Dodgers were to send to the league.

However, it was decided in both their cases that they had worked enough innings so that they needed rest more than the extra workload.

Instead, righthanders Eric Hull and Beau Dannemiller have been substituted.
