Info. on Adam Miller, Yovani Gallardo, & Edward Salcedo!

Hello everyone, I hope you are all doing very well!  :-)

I learned of this piece in the Cleveland Plain Dealer regarding Adam Miller and the finger injuries he dealt with last year.  The renowned Dr. James Andrews says that injuries of these type "aren't rare, but aren't common" (he reportedly gets about 6 cases a year.)

He says that Miller's "big hands, long fingers, and the fact he throws hard" is a good combination for this type of injury to occur.  Hopefully, it doesn't continue to be a recurring problem, though I suspect his hands, fingers, and velocity will probably remain the same for a while (and especially the first two.  :-)

Right now, Miller is in camp and is just a few bullpen sessions behind the other Indians' pitchers - they threw 50 pitches in their bullpen sessions; he threw 45 pitches.  For now, Miller seems healthy, though he does say the finger "feels different, though there's no pain."

You can read more of Miller's comments here.

Regarding Gallardo, it's expected he'll miss the next 4 weeks due to torn cartilage in his left knee.  He's expected to have arthroscopic knee surgery on Tuesday.  You can read more about that here.

Regarding Salcedo, supposedly, the Yankees have offered him a $5 million contract. A scout who has seen him says that "he's a big, strong kid with a good arm, good hands, and some power." He also mentioned though that he'd "like to see him play against some tougher competition." I'm guessing that's probably why the Yankees, Indians, and others have not signed him yet - they're probably not THAT willing to spend that much on a guy who can dominate his own age-group, but may have questions on whether he can perform at a comparably high level against more seasoned competition.

Take care and have a great day!
