Miller will be the fifth starter in the Rangers' rotation to start the season, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

Miller ran his pitch count to 77 on the back fields in a minor-league game Thursday when he allowed a run on five hits and did not walk a batter. That was an encouraging sign from the 28-year-old right-hander, who has allowed 18 baserunners in 8.2 Cactus League innings. The Rangers would still like to see one good start against major-league competition before Miller makes his first regular-season start, expected to be April 3 against Houston.
