Making his first start for Triple-A Reno since getting demoted on July 14, Miller went 6.2 innings on Tuesday, allowing four hits and three earned runs while striking out 10. He walked two.

EDGE Analysis

While Miller will need to string together a few solid outings before the Diamondbacks and fantasy owners can trust him again, Tuesday's outing was certainly a step in the right direction. At the MLB level this season, Miller is 2-9 with a 7.14 ERA and 1.75 WHIP.

Miller was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

This move comes as a surprise, not only given Miller's contract situation, but also due to the injuries to other starters such as Zack Greinke and Rubby De La Rosa. That said, Miller has been one of the more disappointing offseason acquisitions in baseball this season, struggling his way to a 7.14 ERA with 50 strikeouts and 34 walks over 69.1 innings of work. He'll head back down to Triple-A to iron out his issues for the time being. The Diamondbacks will make a corresponding roster move Friday.

Miller (2-9) allowed seven hits and six earned runs over five innings in Wednesday's loss to the Padres. He struck out five and walked one.

EDGE Analysis

The struggles continue for Miller, who now owns a 7.14 ERA on the season. Although the Diamondbacks gave up a lot to acquire Miller in the offseason, they may have no choice but to bump him from the rotation at some point. For now, Miller's next start will come sometime after the All-Star break.

Miller (2-8) struggled again on Friday, allowing eight hits and five earned runs over six innings to pick up the loss against the Giants. He struck out five and walked two.

EDGE Analysis

The nightmare season continues for Miller, who now has a 6.85 ERA. He looked good in his return from the DL on June 20, allowing just one run, but he's been shelled for 12 runs over 12 innings in his last two starts. He'll get the ball again on Wednesday against the Padres,

Miller (2-7) gave up 11 hits, seven earned runs and a walk over six innings in Saturday's 11-6 loss to the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

The 25-year-old couldn't duplicate the success he'd seen in his first appearance back from injury against the Phillies last Monday, instead surrendering the most earned runs in a start all season. The setting certainly didn't do him any favors, but Miler also failed to help his own cause by sandwiching homers to Charlie Blackmon and Tony Wolters around RBI hits from Daniel Descalso, Wolters and Nolan Arenado. Miller's ERA is back up to 6.79, and he's yielded at least one homer in five of his last six trips to the mound. He'll look to rebound versus the Giants next Friday.

Miller (2-6) was solid in his return from the disabled list on Monday, going 6.2 innings and giving up just one run on five hits.

EDGE Analysis

Miller struck out five and picked up his first win since May 7. It's mostly been a struggle for Miller in his first season with the Diamondbacks, but maybe this start will get the 25-year-old righty going. His next scheduled start could be tough, however, as he's set to face the Rockies in Coors Field on Saturday.

The Diamondbacks activated Miller (finger) from the disabled list Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Miller will rejoin the Diamondbacks after missing nearly a month due to his finger injury. He will jump right back into the big league rotation and take the ball Monday afternoon against the Phillies.

Miller (finger) will return from the DL against the Phillies on Monday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Miller was placed on the 15-day DL on May 27 after spraining a finger on his right hand. He made two rehab starts with High-A Visalia, going 2-0 with a 0.75 ERA in 12 innings of work. Miller had been in the midst of a rough beginning to the 2016 season, but will look to get back on track Monday against Philadelphia.

Miller is the projected starter for Sunday's game against the Phillies, Jack Magruder of Fan Rag Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Miller had a 7.09 ERA in 10 starts prior to the stint on the DL, so don't look to his first start back to be a gem. That said, he struck out 19 in his two rehab starts, allowing only one earned run, looking sharp against the minor league competition.

Miller (finger) will make another minor league rehab start, Jody Jackson of FOX Sports Arizona reports.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander made a case to return after just one rehab outing, fanning 11 batters over six scoreless innings Thursday against High-A competition (78 pitches), but it seems the Diamondbacks want Miller to build his pitch count up more. Another strong showing could be big for Miller's confidence as he looks to bounce back from a miserable first two months of the 2016 campaign.
