The Marlins are placing starting pitcher Andrew Miller on the 15-day disabled list with patellar tendinitis to his right knee, retroactive to Monday. The move will be made Friday, and the Marlins are expected to call up a reliever from Triple A Albuquerque, at least initially.
Manager Fredi Gonzalez said Josh Johnson and Chris Volstad will move up in the rotation, with Johnson starting Sunday agaisnt the Phillies and Volstad taking the mound on Monday against the Braves. Ricky Nolasco and Scott Olsen are scheduled to start Friday and Saturday, respectively, against the Phillies.
Gonzalez said a decision on a starter for Tuesday will be made later.
Miller has struggled recently, losing his past four decisions. He went 0-2 on the just-concluded road trip, and was knocked out in the second inning on Sunday in Los Angeles.
