Zach Miner called up

While all the reports yesterday were that Andrew Miller would be called up with Jeremy Bonderman going on the disabled list, today’s game notes indicate that Zach Miner was called up. My guess is that this is the result of the rainout and today’s doubleheader. Miner will give the team another arm in the bullpen if need be today. He, or perhaps one of the other relievers (maybe Byrdak?) will probably be sent down following today’s game to make room for Miller.

Miner had a rough start to the year, but has made 3 quality starts in a row and hasn’t allowed a run in his last 13 innings.

UPDATE: Thanks to those who sent this, but Miner is starting in place of a sick Maroth.

    Do you have a link on this? The Toledo Blade has Miner starting for the Mud Hens today in a doubleheader vs Louisville.

    Just read that Miner is STARTING today, Maroth is ill, no details.

    For one day at least, that leaves ONE starter from last year healthy.

    I don’t know about starting Miller. From what I hear, he’s having trouble adjusting to his new mechanics. His stats at either level aren’t terribly impressive.
