Miller earns Pacific Coast League accolades
ST. LOUIS -- A tumultuous season for Cardinals top pitching prospect Shelby Miller has hit one of its calmest stretches in recent weeks. And it hasn't gone unnoticed.

On Monday, Miller was named the Pacific Coast League Pitcher of the Week, an honor that highlights his two most recent starts for Triple-A Memphis. Both outings lasted seven innings, and Miller allowed a combined four runs on 12 hits. He did not walk a batter, and he struck out 16.

Miller earned the win in both games, pushing his record to 7-9. While Miller's season ERA of 5.25 still reflects the sometimes substantial struggles he's had in his first season at the Triple-A level, it's the 2.79 ERA in five starts since the All-Star break that the organization would prefer to draw attention to. It was just before that stretch of starts that Miller made some specific changes with his mechanics.

Miller is currently ranked by MLB.com as the second-best prospect in baseball.
