      Rangers' Shelby Miller: Moving to bullpen

      Manager Chris Woodward confirmed Thursday that Shelby Miller has been moved to the bullpen, Robert Falkoff of MLB.com reports.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.

      Rangers' Shelby Miller: Rotation spot in limbo

      Shelby Miller is not expected to make his next scheduled start, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.It sounds like Miller will be removed from the rotation for the time being, with Ariel Jurado expected to make a start over the weekend in his place. The 28-year-old Miller was rocked for eight runs in just 1.2 innings his last time out, and he now owns a brutal 9.51 ERA and 20:23 K:BB through 29.1 innings on the season. It remains to be seen whether Miller will rejoin the rotation at a later point in the season after working through some kinks.

      Rangers' Shelby Miller: Blasted by Royals

      Shelby Miller (1-3) took the loss Tuesday as the Texas Rangers fell 11-5 to the Royals, surrendering eight runs on seven hits and two walks over only 1.2 innings while striking out one.The right-hander's spot in the rotation seemed to be hanging by a thread coming into this game, and Kansas City took a blowtorch to it, scoring three two-out runs in the first inning before chasing Miller in the second. He now carries a 9.51 ERA and 20:23 K:BB through 29.1 innings, and Texas will have to seriously consider alternatives the next time his turn comes around Sunday.

      Rangers' Shelby Miller: Will start next Tuesday

      Shelby Miller will make his next scheduled start Tuesday on the road against Kansas City, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.Manager Chris Woodward flirted with the idea of moving Miller to the bullpen or skipping his slot Tuesday. The manager opted to keep Miller in the rotation and on schedule instead of moving up Mike Minor to pitch on normal rest. Minor has averaged 106 pitches over his last five starts, a significant leap from the 91-pitch average per outing he had in 2018. Miller will enter the contest with a 7.48 ERA and 21 walks over 27.2 innings.

      Rangers' Shelby Miller: Yields two runs in four innings

      Shelby Miller allowed two runs on four hits with six strikeouts and one walk across four innings during a no-decision against the Pirates on Wednesday.The only real blemish Miller had on the day was a homer yielded to Josh Bell, but that was a big blemish, as Bell deposited Miller's mistake into the river. Miller has struggled so mightily this season, Texas Rangers manager Chris Woodward said last week he was considering moving him to the bullpen. Miller might have earned another start with this performance, but he still has ugly numbers -- 1-2 record, 7.48 ERA, 1.92 WHIP and 19 strikeouts in 27.2 innings.

      Rangers' Shelby Miller: Could shift to bullpen

      Manager Chris Woodward said the Texas Rangers are considering moving Shelby Miller to the bullpen, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.Miller is still scheduled to start Wednesday against the Pirates, but if he continues to struggle -- the right-hander owns a 7.99 ERA, 2.03 WHIP and 13:20 K:BB through six starts (23.2 innings) this season -- it sounds like the Rangers won't hesitate to move him to a relief role. "We are going to obviously talk about everything and see what makes the most sense," Woodward said. "I can't say that right now. It's definitely an option. It's not a slight on him [or] thinking he can't start. He's got really good stuff and it plays at 94-95 [mph], out of the bullpen it might be 95-96 [mph]."

      Rangers' Shelby Miller: Takes second loss

      Shelby Miller (1-2) allowed four runs on four hits with three strikeouts and two walks across 3.1 innings during a loss to the Pirates on Wednesday.Pirates rookie outfielder Bryan Reynolds knocked Miller out of the game with a bases-clearing double in the fourth. The hit gave the Pirates a three-run lead. It's been a difficult five weeks to begin his Texas Rangers tenure this year, as Miller has pitched into the sixth inning just once and has yielded at least four runs in five straight outings. He is 1-2 with a 7.99 ERA, 2.03 WHIP, .295 batting average against and 13 strikeouts in 23.2 innings over six starts. Miller will get another crack at the Pirates in his next start Wednesday.

      Rangers' Shelby Miller: Reaches five innings

      Shelby Miller allowed four runs on three hits and five walks while striking out four over five innings in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Mariners. He did not factor in the decision.This marked the second straight start that Miller was competitive and pitched at least five innings, which is progress for him and a relief to Texas' overworked bullpen. Improvement is still needed, though, as the right-hander has walked 18 batters over 20.1 innings in his five starts. Miller will lug a 7.52 ERA into his next start Friday at home against Toronto.

      Rangers' Shelby Miller: Allows four runs in win

      Shelby Miller (1-1) yielded four runs (three earned) on five hits and two walks, earning the win over Houston on Sunday. He struck out three batters and gave up two homers.It certainly wasn't pretty, but Miller will happily take his first win of what's been a hideous start to 2019. He's thrown just 15.1 innings in four starts with a 7.63 ERA and a horrid 6:13 K:BB. Things won't get easier for Miller as he'll face Seattle on Friday.

      Rangers' Shelby Miller: Receives vote of confidence

      Manager Chris Woodward believes Shelby Miller will turn around his slow start, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.Miller, who is coming back from elbow surgery, has pitched just 10 innings across three starts, and those starts have not gone well. However, Woodward saw the positive in Monday's outing during which the right-hander retired five of the last six batters faced. "He showed me a lot, because I told him after the third inning I was going to take him out," Woodward said. "He insisted that I leave him in there. I was really hoping he would say that. I was hoping he wouldn't just accept ... OK, I'm done." The manager didn't confirm Miller will remain in the starting rotation, but Woodward's comments suggest Miller will be on the hill Sunday at home against the streaking Astros.
