Gainesville native and current left-hand pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals Andrew Miller is like many other MLB players right now.
He is trying to find ways to fill the time in quarantine and find ways to stay game ready. And staying game ready for the MLB without gyms or teammates is easier said than done.
Miller has had to get creative when working out at home to help him stay in shape.
A lot of speculation has been tossed around about the possibilities of different ways for different sports to get their seasons started. One of the new proposals is to keep teams in their spring training location.
Miller thinks that it is great that new ideas are being tossed around on how to get the season started. But however exciting as they may sound, he is still skeptical about them working out.
While the timeline for sports starting back up again, one thing is for certain that athletes will need time to practice as a team.
Miller compares the break to the 1995 MLB strike. After the 232 day strike, the players used 17 days to regroup and workout as a team.
With his 14 years of experience, Miller has played for a number of iconic teams. However, something stands out for him about the Cardinals fans.
During his 2019 season, Miller appeared in 73 games for a total of 54.2 innings pitched for St. Louis. He racked up 70 strikeouts with a 4.45 ERA.
