Miller undergoes special treatment

Andrew Miller can now relate to what Cody Ross went through after the 2007 season.

As treatment for his right oblique strain, Miller has received a Platelet-Rich Plasma injection. The procedure basically took Miller’s own blood, and then purified it and re-injected it into the impaired area, below his right rib cage.

Ross had a similar injection after the 2007 season, where the blood was used to help heal a left hamstring problem.

Miller went on the disabled list on April 20, and he is confident he will be ready to return to the rotation when his 15-days are up. His rotation spot would fall on May 6 at home against Atlanta.

Miller said he may begin throwing off flat ground on Saturday.
