Greg Miller Optioned to Minors

From the L.A. Times:

Miller sent down

The Dodgers made one roster move Friday morning, optioning pitcher Greg Miller to minor league camp. Miller was 2-0 in Grapefruit League play despite giving up five runs and nine hits in eight innings. He also hit four batters and walked three.

"We like the way he pitched," Little said. "He needs to start some games in the minor leagues and to be ready to do that he needs to get more innings right now than we're able to give him. A young man with a gifted arm like he has and the condition he's in right now, he can learn more about pitching by starting games and working more innings."
