The 21-year-old is less than a year removed from his one and one-half year sojourn on the disabled list after two shoulder surgeries but was completely dominant during his stay in the Southern League.
He was 1-0 with an 0.82 ERA and one save. He held opposing batters to a .139 average, striking out 24 in 22 innings while walking 11.
His fast ball regularly was clocked in the 94-95 mph range while his curve appeared crisp as well. He faltered in just one game and , while there were occasional control lapses, he made improvement in that area as well.
At Las Vegas he'll join Hong-Chi Kuo to give the 51's two power lefties out of the bullpen. Of course, it puts him just a step away from Los Angeles.
Miller's place on the Suns active roster was taken by righthander Joel Hanrahan, who had been on the disabled list with a hamstring pull.
Also, another lefthander, Matt Merricks, returned to action for Vero Beach after a short stint on the D.L. for what was termed "arm fatigue". With Alberto Bastardo having made a strong start after being called up from Columbus to replace Merricks, Matt was sent to the bullpen where he pitched three scoreless
innings Monday night.
