ANDREW MILLER'S ON THE RIGHT TRACK
Quick note about Andrew Miller... he's close.
According to Alden Woods of MLB.com, Miller was able to throw and felt no pain. Woods writes: "Andrew Miller threw Wednesday for the first time since being placed on the disabled list, starting a rehab process he hopes will have him throwing off a mound next week. Miller, who was placed on the DL with a strained left flexor muscle on June 10, made 25 flat-ground throws from 60 feet Wednesday morning. He said he was pain-free and plans to throw again on Thursday. 'I'll throw a little bit more tomorrow, then an off-day, then just kind of build up, make a progression,' Miller said.
The Yankees haven't publicly discussed any timetable for Miller's return, but he figures to throw off a mound in the next seven or eight days. The goal is to not rush back, he said."
Good news for Miller, and it looks like we'll need him just in time, as we and others have discussed in Yankeeland, the bullpen is shaky, the starting rotation, other than Ivan Nova today, hasn't exactly been lights out, and we need alittle stability.
Hopefully Miller's on the way back.
