Tribe shutting down Andrew Miller for five to seven days

CLEVELAND– The Indians are shutting down reliever Andrew Miller for five to seven days, following a diagnosis of patellofemoral syndrome.

The diagnosis came as a result of Miller’s patellar tendonitis. Miller exited Monday’s game against the Boston Red Sox after throwing just seven pitches during the seventh inning.  Miller initially came off the disabled list last Friday.

“All doctors are encouraged he will respond well to a conservative therapy program,” the team said via a release. “Andrew will be shut down from throwing for a period of 5-7 days and a more definitive time frame for return will be established once he resumes his throwing program.”

Miller is 4-3 in 2017, and has posted a 1.65 ERA in 48 appearances on the mound.

In other news, the Tribe also recalled LHP Ryan Merritt from Class Triple-A Columbus. In return, they sent RHP Shawn Armstrong back down to Columbus.
