Miller Strains Hammy, Rodney Returns
Miller's injury occurred in the fourth inning of Friday's start against the Chicago White Sox, apparently on the last pitch to Paul Konerko.
The promising youngster is 5-4 with a 4.42 ERA in 11 starts this season and plans to return as soon as medically possible. The timely return of scary reliever Fernando Rodney may help the Tigers stop losing so many games in a row.
Rodney (1-5, 5.40 ERA) has been battling right shoulder tendinitis since mid-June. The righty tossed three scoreless innings over four games during a rehab assignment with the AAA Toledo Mud Hens earlier this week, so he should be ready to roll.

The Detroit Tigers placed reliever Fernando Rodney on the 15-day disabled list Friday, with tendinitis in his right shoulder, retroactive to Sunday.
Manager Jim Leyland hopes to have him back after the All-Star Break.
With a short stint on the DL in late May, the right-hander is 1-5 with one save and a 5.40 ERA in 27 games this season.
