Andrew Miller was dismal once again, knocked out in the second inning on Sunday here at Dodger Stadium after coughing up seven runs on five hits and five walks. He lost in San Diego earlier in the week after he gave up four runs in the first.
Clearly, things are not going well for Miller, and the more he struggles, the more he begins to look like the odd man out when Anibal Sanchez returns. While Miller was coming unraveled against the Dodgers, Sanchez was throwing 5 2/3 innings of shutout baseball in a rehab start in Fort Myers for Single A Jupiter. Sanchez gave up three hits and struck out six. The Marlins think he could be ready in about three weeks.
