Rangers' Shelby Miller: Moving to bullpen
Woodward suggested that Miller's transition to relief work won't necessarily be a permanent one, but the right-hander provided little evidence in his eight starts that he's still an MLB-caliber rotation option. He failed to work longer than 5.1 innings in any of those outings and posted a 9.51 ERA and 2.11 WHIP, both of which ranked last among all pitchers who have received at least five starts. Woodward envisions using Miller as a one- or two-inning reliever for the time being, with most of the 28-year-old's initial usage out of the bullpen expected to come in lower-leverage spots.
