Andrew Miller promoted to Erie
Andrew Miller is being promted to Erie and his first start will be this Sunday. A promotion was expected as soon as the warm weather arrived so I don't know if this move signifies anything other than that. It should be a good move for him though as he induces a lot of ground balls (a very high 4.5 ground out to air out ratio) and the Lakeland infield defense has not been very good this year. He had a 3.48 ERA and a 28/15 K/BB ratio in 41 1/3 innings for Lakeland. The k rate is not very impressive but he has reportedly been working on developing pitches rather than throwing his hardest.
