Dodgers’ Dave Roberts Provides Exciting Update on Bobby Miller

After missing two months because of shoulder inflammation, starting pitcher Bobby Miller will return to the Los Angeles Dodgers next week.

Manager Dave Roberts told reporters on Friday that the team would activate him off the 15-day injured list to start against the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday. Coincidentally, that is the same day Clayton Kershaw will make his first rehab appearance with High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

Miller only started three games before the injury bug bit him. He began a rehab stint on May 26 and started four games in the minors.

Miller wasn’t perfect on his assignment, allowing 14 runs over 15 innings. He topped out at 4.2 innings and 93 pitches for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday.

The second-year starter emerged as one of the Dodgers’ strongest arms last season and carried it over into the first start this season, when he struck out 11 St. Louis Cardinals in six innings, allowing only two hits and one walk. His next start against the Chicago Cubs wasn’t as sharp. He was tagged for five earned runs on four hits in less than two innings of work.

When he returns to the mound, he brings with him a record of 1-1 and an ERA of 5.40.
