Added weight helping keep Braves' Shelby Miller strong
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Braves pitcher Shelby Miller said that he added about 15 pounds over the offseason. 

Miller was at 215 pounds last season, when he went 10-9 with the Cardinals. Dealt to the Braves in the offseason for Jason Heyward, Miller has bulked up. 

"I feel stronger ... more poise," he told MLB.com's Kevin McAlpin.

Miller has a 6.14 ERA in three games this spring.

Braves' Shelby Miller: 'My arm feels good'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Braves pitcher Shelby Miller tossed four scoreless innings Tuesday, giving up four hits and two walks while striking out three in his team's 11-3 win against the Red Sox.

"I feel good," Miller said after the start, per MLB.com. "My stuff still needs to get there -- it's not as sharp as it can be, but at the same time, my arm feels good. I've got a good idea of what we need to do going forward."

Miller allowed five earned runs in 3 1/3 innings over his first two spring starts before bouncing back Tuesday. He's set to open his first season in Atlanta after posting a 3.33 ERA and 312:134 K:BB ratio in 370 innings with the Cardinals in his first three seasons.

Braves' Shelby Miller improves in second spring start
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

After surrendering four runs in a third of an inning in his spring debut, Braves pitcher Shelby Miller stepped his performance up Thursday, allowing one earned run on two hits and one walk in three innings aginst the Yankees while striking out two.

"You always want to do better than the last time out. It wouldn't have been too much harder to beat. It was a pretty rough outing," Miller said after the outing, per MLB.com. "Today was just more trying to learn from last time and just getting more feel for the [strike] zone, which I felt like we did a good job of."

Miller added that he wasn't working on anything in particular in Thursday's outing. He needed 47 pitches to complete his three innings of work.

Braves' Shelby Miller rocked in spring training debut Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Braves pitcher Shelby Miller didn't have the ideal start to spring training Saturday. The right-hander surrendered four runs and recorded just one out in his start against the Tigers. But Miller wasn't worried about how things finished, reports MLB.com.

"Am I frustrated by it? Yeah. But at the same time, it's still the first game of spring training," Miller said.

He also noted he has a lot of time to fine-tune his pitches before the regular season begins.

"It's still early," Miller said. "I've still got a lot of time to work on things. But other than the fact that I made some bad pitches and left the ball in the middle [of the plate], my arm felt good and physically I felt good. That's about all that matters, right now."

Braves' Shelby Miller: Sinker is 'going to take me to the next level'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller had an up-and-down season with the Cardinals in 2014. He began the season by going 6-2 with a 2.79 ERA before going 2-7 with a 5.11 ERA over his next 16 appearances (15 starts).

Miller, however, was able to finish the season on a high note, going 2-0 with a 2.08 ERA and .190 opponents' batting average over his final seven starts. Miller attributes his success down the stretch to incorporating a sinker into his repertoire, per FOX Sports South.

"I said I'm going to throw some of these, and we'll see where it's at," Miller said of a conversation he had with catcher A.J. Pierzynski before an Aug. 23 start against the Phillies. "It felt good so we just went with it. I started throwing it literally within three days. It's a good pitch that I picked up quick.

"I still need a lot of work with it. I need a lot of work with all my pitches. There's all sorts of ways to get better. But I think that's definitely a pitch that will help me be more efficient and take me deeper into games. That's [the sinker] going to be a huge pitch for me this year that's ultimately going to take me to the next level. Not only that but kind of mixing it all together, becoming more of a complete pitcher more than a thrower."

Miller added he will also begin to work more on his changeup, which he threw just 2.2 percent of the time in 2014, per FanGraphs.com.

"I know [Braves pitching coach] Roger [McDowell] has been known for changeups," Miller said. "A lot of great pitchers have come through this organization, [and] that's a pitch I would love to pick up. I want to be able to throw it more consistently, [and] have a little bit more confidence in it."
