Miller to have Surgery on Tuesday

Postby dazindiansfanuk » Fri Apr 24, 2009 5:06 pm

Right-hander Adam Miller likely will undergo surgery on his right middle finger Tuesday, Indians head trainer Lonnie Soloff said this afternoon.

In a best-case scenario, Miller would be sidelined 6-9 months.

I give him credit for trying to pitch around the issue, but this was probably inevitable. I really feel for this kid...the major leagues were RIGHT there at the tip of his fingers (bad pun).

Just goes to emphasize how fragile a MLB career is. You can have all the talent in the world. But you also need a little bit of luck, and the right opportunity at the right time.
Best of luck Adam.

Better to have the surgery now then in July or September. In some ways I almost wish this was done a month ago but at least now everyone can say EVERY CHANCE to avoid having the surgery was taken.

Best of luck and get well soon Adam.
