Are you paying attention to Andrew Miller’s sensational statistics | Cleveland.com

0.29 ERA. Unreal. From Zack Meisel:

Andrew Miller only throws a fastball and a slider, but really, it's so much more than that.

He placed a backdoor slider on the outside corner to Yolmer Sanchez for a called third strike in the sixth inning on Sunday. Sanchez shook his head in the batter's box before he retreated to the dugout.

In the next at-bat, Miller bounced a slider in the dirt, but Tim Anderson still gave chase for strike three. On Friday night, he dropped Avisail Garcia to one knee on a swinging strikeout.

Carlos Carrasco left the tying run on second base for Miller when the southpaw entered on Sunday.

"As soon as I saw Miller, I said, ‘This inning is over,'" Carrasco said.
