Update on Quinton Miller

I receive a lot of questions these days on the status of Pittsburgh Pirates’ pitching prospect Quinton Miller.  Miller started the season with the West Virginia Power, but was pulled from his second start after one inning on April 16th.  On April 18th, Miller was placed on the minor league disabled list with shoulder tendonitis.

I spoke with Adam Marco, the Director of Media Relations for the West Virginia Power, and learned that Miller had recently started a throwing program.  I then got in touch with Miller, who told me that “the status of the injury was good”.  Miller threw two innings in the GCL game today (the results currently aren’t posted) and said that all is feeling good after the outing.  There isn’t a timetable on his return to West Virginia, although he hopes it will only be a few weeks.

It’s good to see a promising pitching prospect back on the mound.  Hopefully Miller can get back to the West Virginia rotation soon.
