FYI Adam Miller

Adam Miller (P) CLE - A 3/1/2005
The Indians decided to shut down Miller after the prized prospect complained of tenderness in his right elbow, the Indians' website reports. Miller, 20, had his throwing session stopped Monday, and he received medical treatment. The Indians will have a team physician examine Miller's elbow Saturday. At this point, no one is sure how serious the tenderness is for the righty. Miller is considered to be the No. 1 prospect in the organization. His high-90s fastball rivals some of the top pitchers in the game, said one coach in the Indians organization. More word on Miller's status when we get it.

News
Right-hander Adam Miller, the Indians' top prospect, will be sidelined until at least June because of a strained ligament in his elbow. Miller will not be allowed to throw for the next six weeks after an MRI exam revealed the injury. Following the six weeks, if the ligament improves, Miller may be cleared to begin a throwing program that will last another four-to-six weeks. The Tribe's first-round pick in 2003 went a combined 10-6 between two levels of Single-A ball in 2004.

Well hopefully he will be ok after some rest, but I've seen "strained" ligaments turn out to be actually torn and need surgery later on. A good example is Mike MeGrew (if you know the dodgers system you prolly have heard of him), this happened to him in 2002. He pitched in 2003 and 2004, but recently had to be shut down and need TJ surgery. They believe it was a result of the strained ligament earlier in his career, that made TJ surgery inevitable at some point. Hopefully for Miller, that won't be the case with him.
