Shelby Miller (shoulder) could throw a bullpen session or live batting practice as soon as Friday.
Miller didn't throw Wednesday due to soreness and tightness in his shoulder. However, he was able to throw off flat ground at 120 feet on Thursday after receiving anti-inflammatory medication and going through stretching of the joint. "I feel 100 percent," said Miller. "All good." It appears that he should be fine to challenge for the final spot in the starting rotation. Joe Kelly and Trevor Rosenthal are also in the mix.
