Cardinals Rumors: St. Louis in talks with Shelby Miller

The St. Louis Cardinals need pitching. Badly. They are reportedly in talks with veteran right-hander Shelby Miller. With the St. Louis Cardinals in desperate need of pitching, and a lot of it, they have understandably been mentioned on the trade market. Among the names they have been connected to include Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer, but like most of the trade options, does not figure to be available until July.

Cardinals have been in contact with Shelby Miller

The Cardinals have reached out to free agent Shelby Miller about a potential reunion, reports Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. St. Louis is looking to add depth at Triple-A Memphis, per Goold. It’s not a foregone conclusion a deal will get done, though, as Goold adds the Cardinals believe at least one other team is interested in the right-hander.

Chicago Cubs Release Shelby Miller

Last week, when the Cubs had to put, well, one of the dozen guys on the Injured List, the IL and 40-man crunch meant that one of the pitchers was gonna have to get bounced from the 40-man. That was Shelby Miller, who was designated for assignment a week ago, and has now been released, according to the team transactions page. (Tyson Miller was subsequently DFA’d, too, and we await the resolution on that one.)

Cubs place Nico Hoerner in IL, designate Shelby Miller

The Cubs have placed infielder/outfielder Nico Hoerner on the 10-day injured list, designated right-hander Shelby Miller for assignment and selected the contract of outfielder Rafael Ortega, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago was among those to report. Hoerner suffered a left hamstring strain earlier this week, forcing the team to...

Cubs Roster Moves: Nico Hoerner to the IL, Rafael Ortega Called Up, Shelby Miller DFA’d

The Cubs now have seven days to trade, waive, or release Miller. But considering how he’s reportedly looked (and felt) during his rehab stint at Triple-A Iowa, I wouldn’t expect him to make it through waivers. That could mean, then, that the Cubs are actively trying to pursue a trade right now. So we’ll have to follow that closely as it plays out.

Cubs' Shelby Miller: Lands on injured list

Miller was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a strain in his lower back, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports. The 30-year-old surrendered seven runs over two innings since having his contract selected by the Cubs last week, and he's now sidelined by a back strain. Miller will be sidelined for at least 10 days, though it's unclear if he'll face a longer absence. Kyle Ryan was recalled from the alternate site in a corresponding move.

Cubs Roster Moves: Shelby Miller to the Injured List, Kyle Ryan to Chicago

Cubs select contract of former All-Star pitcher Shelby Miller

The Cubs selected right-hander Shelby Miller from their alternate training site in South Bend, Ind., per a team announcement. The Cubs also reinstated righty Jason Adam from the injured list and optioned righty Adbert Alzolay and lefty Brad Wieck to the alternate site. These moves come in addition to the reinstatement of Austin Romine and the DFA of Tony Wolters, which were announced earlier in the day.

Cubs Option Adbert Alzolay, Activate Jason Adam, Select Shelby Miller from Alternate Site

In addition to activating backup catcher Austin Romine, the Cubs made some transactions with their pitching staff on Wednesday. They have activated righty Jason Adam from the COVID-19 related injured list and have selected righty Shelby Miller from the alternate site at South Bend. In order to make room on the roster for those pitchers, both Adbert Alzolay and Brad Wieck have been optioned to the alternate site.

Cubs' Shelby Miller: Knocked around in 2021 debut

Miller allowed four earned runs on two hits and three walks without recording an out in Wednesday's loss to the Brewers. After having his contract selected by the Cubs earlier in the day, this certainly wasn't the season debut Miller was hoping for. Adbert Alzolay was optioned to the team's alternate site to make room, but he should return over the weekend, which could bump Miller from the roster once again.

Cubs' Shelby Miller: Should still contribute this season

Chicago manager David Ross said Miller will "contribute to our team" this season, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports. Miller was reassigned to minor-league camp Saturday, and he could opt out of the assignment at some point early in the season, but Ross said the righty will "pitch big innings for us." With the jump from 60 games in 2020 back to 162 games this season, teams will likely dip into their pitching depth to cover the innings without overworking starters. Miller's not on the fantasy radar right now, and his performance the past few seasons hasn't been great, but he could work his way into a regular role with the Cubs at some point.
