Miller learning from veteran teammates


MILWAUKEE -- Shelby Miller has had a great start to his season, and the right-hander gives a lot of credit to the veterans in the clubhouse.

The rotation had a Major League-leading 2.07 ERA heading into Saturday's game against the Brewers. Jake Westbrook has a 1.07 ERA and Adam Wainwright has a 2.03 ERA, while the 22-year-old Miller is at 1.96 after six starts.

"I'm in one of the best rotations in the league," he said. "I get to be around guys who have been around for awhile. Waino, Westbrook, guys who've had more time. It's fun to be around guys like that.

"You just learn things every single day. We watch each others' 'pens, we watch each other work, and it's just hands on every single day. It's a blessing for me. Not every organization has that."
