  • Giants' Erik Miller: Picks up third win

    Miller (3-2) walked one and struck out one in a scoreless and hitless inning to earn the win Tuesday over the Blue Jays.

    Miller worked the ninth inning with the Giants down by a run, and they were able to score twice in their half of the frame for the walk-off win. The southpaw's ability to pick up wins has been limited lately, as he saw steady usage as an opening pitcher when San Francisco's rotation was hammered by injuries in June. To his credit, he hasn't taken a loss since May 21, and he's yet to be on the hook for a loss in any of his nine starting assignments. Miller is on an eight-inning scoreless streak that has trimmed his ERA to 3.43 with a 1.19 WHIP and 46:22 K:BB through 42 innings this season. He's added 11 holds and three blown saves.

  • Giants' Erik Miller: Will open Friday's game

    Miller will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher in Friday's game in Cleveland, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    It's a role Miller is familiar with and has succeeded at, having opened eight times already this season and allowed two runs (one earned) over 8.2 innings. Spencer Bivens is a candidate for bulk relief Friday.

  • Giants' Erik Miller: Opening pitcher in bullpen day

    Miller will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher in Saturday's game against the Dodgers, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Miller will serve as an opener for the eighth time this season, and he's fared well in the role thus far, giving up just one earned run in 7.2 innings across his first seven starts. He'll likely work no more than inning or two before giving way to the bullpen, with right-hander Spencer Howard being the most likely candidate to handle the bulk of the innings.

  • Giants' Erik Miller: Draws opener duties again Monday

    Miller will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher for Monday's game against the Cubs, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Miller has taken to the opener role quite well, allowing two runs (one earned) with an 8:4 K:BB over 6.2 innings covering his first six opener assignments. Spencer Howard is in line to follow Miller as the Giants' primary pitcher.

  • Giants' Erik Miller: Opening Wednesday's game

    Miller will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher for Wednesday's game against the Cubs.

    Miller is operating as an opener for the sixth time this season. On the previous five occasions, Miller has never been asked to record more than five outs, so he's unlikely to remain in the game for more than two innings. Spencer Howard is expected to work in bulk relief behind Miller.

  • Giants' Erik Miller: Snags win Monday

    Miller (2-2) allowed three runs on two hits and a walk over 1.1 innings, earning the win Monday over the Cubs. He did not record a strikeout.

    Miller allowed an inherited runner to score in the seventh inning on a Seiya Suzuki double, and Ian Happ followed that up with a three-run blast. That would have left Miller in line for the loss, but he pitched a scoreless eighth, and the Giants' offense rallied for the lead in the ninth. The southpaw has allowed six runs (four earned) over his last four appearances, one of which was an opener assignment Sunday versus the Angels. He's at a 4.24 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 38:16 K:BB with 10 holds and three blown saves over 34 innings. Miller is a versatile reliever, though his grip on a part-time setup role was tenuous even before his recent struggles.

  • Giants' Erik Miller: Opening Sunday's contest

    Miller will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher for Sunday's game against the Angels, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Miller will draw the opener assignment for the fifth time this season after the Giants had previously listed Kyle Harrison as the starter for Sunday's contest before placing him on the 15-day injured list with an ankle sprain just a few hours before the 4:05 p.m. ET opening pitch. Miller hasn't been tasked with recording more than five outs in any of his previous turns as an opener, so he shouldn't be expected to handle more than two innings before he turns the game over to the bullpen. Spencer Bivens was called up from Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday and could be an option to cover multiple innings behind Miller.

  • Giants' Erik Miller: Picks up first big-league win

    Miller (1-2) allowed a hit and struck out two over one scoreless inning to earn the win over the Rangers on Saturday.

    Starter Spencer Howard came up one out shy of qualifying for the win. That left the decision to Miller, who got the last out of the fifth inning and two more in the sixth to contribute his part of 4.1 scoreless innings by the Giants' bullpen. Miller is on a 6.1-inning scoreless streak and has pitched to a 3.60 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 38:15 K:BB with 10 holds and two blown saves through 30 innings this season. He's also opened four games and continues to operate in whatever role is needed of him from game to game.

  • Giants' Erik Miller: Tapped to open again

    Miller will be the Giants' opening pitcher in Monday's game in Arizona, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    It's the fourth such assignment for Miller, who has yielded one run with a 6:3 K:BB over 3.2 innings covering his first three appearances as an opener this season. Spencer Howard is expected to follow Miller in bulk relief.

  • Giants' Erik Miller: Tosses scoreless frame

    Miller threw a scoreless first inning as Tuesday's opener against the Phillies. He did not allow a hit but did walk a batter and struck out two.

    Miller worked around a walk to fire a scoreless opening inning before handing the ball over to Taylor Rogers in the second frame. He's now worked as an opener on three occasions this season but has appeared 27 times. The 26-year-old owns a 4.21 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 33:15 K:BB in 25.2 innings.

  • Giants' Erik Miller: Opening Tuesday's game

    Miller will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher in Tuesday's game against the Phillies, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    Miller was unavailable to pitch over the weekend due to a calf injury, but he appears to be fine now. He'll likely work an inning or two Tuesday before turning the game over the bullpen. Baggarly notes that the Giants have discussed recalling Spencer Howard from Triple-A Sacramento to serve as a bulk reliever Tuesday, though the team has yet to make any roster moves as of yet.

  • Giants' Erik Miller: Serving as opener Thursday

    Miller will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher for Thursday's game in Pittsburgh, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Mason Black had been lined up to start Thursday, but he could be deployed as a bulk reliever in the series finale once Miller exits the contest. Miller has been used as an opener once previously this season, throwing a scoreless inning in Boston back on May 1.

  • Giants' Erik Miller: Handed loss Tuesday

    Miller (0-2) allowed an unearned run on one hit without retiring a batter to take the extra-inning loss Tuesday versus the Pirates.

    Miller gave up a walk-off single to Nick Gonzales in the 10th inning after the duo of Luke Jackson and Camilo Doval gave away a four-run lead in the ninth. This was the first time in May that Miller gave up a run without surrendering a homer. The southpaw has allowed four runs (three earned) with an 11:8 K:BB over nine innings this month, and he's at a mediocre 4.50 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 28:14 K:BB through 22 innings overall. Miller has also added eight holds and taken two blown saves.

  • Giants' Erik Miller: Serving as opener Wednesday

    Miller will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    The 26-year-old rookie will be making his first big-league start. Miller hasn't recorded more than four outs in any of his 13 relief appearances this season, so he's unlikely to cover more than an inning or two before turning the game over to the bullpen. Right-hander Daulton Jefferies was called up from Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday and is expected to serve as the Giants' primary pitcher out of the bullpen once Miller exits the contest.

  • Giants' Erik Miller: Handed first loss

    Miller (0-1) took the loss Sunday versus the Diamondbacks, allowing two runs (one earned) on two hits while striking out one and walking none over one inning.

    Miller's five-inning scoreless streak came to an end Sunday, though it wasn't all his fault. He struggled initially this season, but has since gotten back on track and earned two holds over his last three appearances. Miller has a 5.73 ERA, but his 0.91 WHIP and 15:5 K:BB over 11 innings suggest the southpaw's luck should even out over time as he gets more comfortable in the majors.

  • Giants' Erik Miller: Recalled from Triple-A

    The Giants recalled Miller from Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Miller was optioned a couple weeks ago but ended up winning a spot in the Opening Day bullpen. The left-hander will be making his major-league debut whenever he gets into a game.

  • Giants' Erik Miller: Optioned to Triple-A

    Miller was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento by the Giants on Monday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Miller had a shot at a bullpen job with the Giants but is being sent out after permitting one run over just three innings this spring. The 26-year-old has a good chance to debut at some point with the big club in 2024.

  • Giants' Erik Miller: In contention for bullpen spot

    Manager Bob Melvin said Miller is in contention to be one of the Giants' left-handed relievers to begin 2024, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    The Giants added Miller to the 40-man roster in November to shield him from the Rule 5 Draft. He has yet to make his major-league debut, but he showed plenty of promise with a 2.45 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 88:45 K:BB over 62.1 innings between Triple-A Sacramento and Double-A Richmond last season. The walk rate is the biggest point of concern for Miller, though it's something that is a long-standing issue for the southpaw. Even if Miller makes the Giants' major-league roster, he'll likely begin 2024 as a low-leverage option.

  • Giants' Erik Miller: Selected to 40-man roster

    The Giants added Miller to their 40-man roster Tuesday.

    Miller put together a solid season in 2023, logging a 2.45 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in 62.1 frames between Double-A and Triple-A. He's now protected from being selected in next month's Rule 5 Draft, and a strong spring from Miller could lead to a spot in the Giants' Opening Day bullpen.

  • Giants' Erik Miller: Dealt to San Fran

    The Giants acquired Miller from the Phillies on Monday in exchange for right-hander Yunior Marte.

    Marte was deemed an expendable bullpen arm after the Giants added another reliever (Luke Jackson) in free agency Monday, so the front office opted to swap him out in favor of more of a developmental option in Miller, a 24-year-old lefty. Though he struggled in his initial exposure to the Triple-A level in 2022 (7.50 ERA, 2.33 WHIP in 12 innings with Lehigh Valley), Miller impressed at Double-A Reading prior to earning the call-up to the International League. Over his 22 outings (seven starts) at Reading spanning 36.1 innings, Miller posted a 2.23 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 44:17 K:BB.
