The Cleveland Indians announced Wednesday that they've placed star reliever Andrew Miller on the 10-day disabled list with lefts shoulder impingement, and that Tyler Olson has been recalled from Triple-A.Roster move:- Placed LHP Andrew Miller (left shoulder, external impingement) on the 10-day Disabled List, retroactive to August 27- Recalled LHP Tyler Olson from Triple-A Columbus#RallyTogether pic.twitter.com/ChsjcZ0YKQ— Cleveland Indians (@Indians) August 29, 2018It's the third time Miller has hit the DL this season, as pointed out by Bob Nightengale of USA Today. Miller is now 33 years of age and is slated to hit free agency this winter, so the series of injuries could hurt his value should he enters the open market.That being said, the Indians are able to be cautious with Miller and their other injuredplayers. They enter play on Wednesday with a 75-56 record, 14 games clear of the Minnesota Twins for the AL Central lead. They're considerably behind the Houston Astros and Boston Red Sox http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-khris-davis-jersey , so the Indians are virtually locked in as the No. 3 seed in the American League come playoff time.advertising Credit: David Richard-USA TODAY SportsMiller has an excellent postseason track record, having won the 2016 ALCS MVP for the Indians after dominating the Toronto Blue Jays. In the postseason that year, Miller pitched 19.1 innings and struck out a whopping 30 batters, picking up two winning decisions while posting an impressive 1.40 ERA.In 27 game appearances with the Indians this season, Miller has posted a 3.38 ERA with 33 strikeouts in 24 innings pitched. Given the season-long struggles of closer Cody Allen, it's very possible Miller assumes the closer role come playoff time. Trade deadline pickup Brad Hand could slot in as the setup man for Miller.advertisingMiller has posted a 1.87 ERA during his two-and-a-half seasons with the Indians, building up a reputation as one of the top relievers in all of baseball. If he can return to full health and have another strong performance in the postseason, Miller could land one of the richest reliever contracts in history come winter time.
