Miller looks forward to 'fun year' with Diamondbacks

PHOENIX (AP) Shelby Miller doesn't seem to mind being traded for the second time in two years. Speaking on a conference call Tuesday, the 25-year-old right-hander sounded elated about the trade that sent him from the Atlanta Braves to the Arizona Diamondbacks. Miller said that, by giving up outfielder Ender Inciarte and two top prospects, the Diamondbacks showed how much ''they...

FG on Fox: The Braves Win the Trade Lottery

For the last few weeks, the Braves have been fielding calls from teams who wanted to trade for Shelby Miller. And for good reason: Miller is just 25 years old, is coming off a strong season in which he reminded everyone he was one of the game’s best pitching prospects coming up through the Cardinals organization, and he won’t be a free agent until after the 2018 season. With...

Atlanta Braves Deal Away Shelby Miller, Score Big With Prospects –

The Atlanta Braves have been floating starting pitcher Shelby Miller on the open market for some time now this offseason, seeing what they could possibly garner back in a deal with the hopes of capitalizing on his value at his highest possible peak. While, there is capitalizing, and then there is outright thievery, which is what the Braves just did to the Arizona Diamondbacks in...

Projecting the Prospects in the Shelby Miller Trade

As you’ve certainly heard by now, the Diamondbacks swung a deal for Shelby Miller (and Gabe Speier) on Wednesday night. The trade gives the D-Backs another bona-fide starter to slot behind the recently signed Zack Greinke. The more controversial story, though, is the size of the package given up by Arizona in the deal: Aaron Blair, Ender Inciarte, and oh yeah, Dansby Swanson....

Attempting to Rationalize the Shelby Miller Trade

With the title of this post, I have given myself an admittedly difficult task, given most comments about this trade since it went down. Arizona traded two top-100 prospects, including one player in the top 25 (at least), as well as a proven major league outfielder in exchange for a somewhat inconsistent pitcher, albeit one coming off a three-win season and with three more years of...

Braves Get Haul from Diamondbacks for Shelby Miller

The Braves have reportedly sent Shelby Miller to the Diamondbacks for 25-year-old outfielder Ender Inciarte, 23-year-old right-hander Aaron Blair, and last year’s number one overall pick, 21-year-old shortstop Dansby Swanson. The Diamondbacks get a good pitcher under control for three years, and the Braves continue their rebuilding process. The return seems very strong for the...

Atlanta Braves nab Nick Markakis in free agency

The Atlanta Braves have been tinkering with their roster ever since the 2014 season came to a close, but the team may have outdone itself on Wednesday with the signing of Baltimore Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis. Markakis, who is from Woodstock, Georgia, stands alone as the Braves’ biggest signing so far this year. A former first round draft pick out of Young Harris College,...
