Miller opening some eyes
This from the Sunday blog of ESPN's Buster Olney:
The Boston Red Sox are very excited by what they've seen this spring from Andrew Miller, who threw what one evaluator called "the best inning I've ever seen" -- seven pitches, two strikeouts and a fastball that hit 99 mph. Boston hasn't committed to a role for Miller, but the signs point to him being used out of the bullpen, if he continues to throw as well as he has in the first week of action.
Miller wasn't so successful Sunday against the Mets, however, giving up four hits and three runs, including a solo homer to Lucas Duda, in two innings.
