Andrew Miller Talks About Rehab with PawSox
After two successful rehab outings with Single-A Greenville, Red Sox pitcher Andrew Miller is now in Rochester with the PawSox and will pitch in tonight’s 7:05 game versus the Red Wings. At this time, it’s not known if Miller will start tonight’s game or pitch out of the bullpen, but we do know that he should pitch two innings (35-40 pitches).
Miller, who becomes the first lefty of the year for Pawtucket, feels good about how is rehabilitation is coming along. “A lot of it is letting it heal and fix itself. Then you have to rebuild the strength and stamina. I think we’re pretty much there, I’m just here to test it out and make sure it’s right.”
How close is he to being fully recovered and ready to join the Red Sox? “I’m very close. I’m about as close as you can get. I feel like I’m going 100% on the mound, I think they just want to keep making sure – we’ll know here shortly.”
