Bosox target May 8 for Wade Miller's return

For all you Topton-ites anxiously awaiting the return of Wade Miller, the Topton native could be back in action in a matter of days.

The Associated Press reported that Miller, scheduled to make his next rehabilitation start Thursday night at Pawtucket against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, is targeted for a May 8 return to the Boston Red Sox. A roster spot should be waiting for him as pitcher David Wells sprained his right foot Monday night and is expected to miss at least a month. Miller has been recovering from a frayed rotator cuff in his pitching arm and hasn't pitched in the majors since last season.

Meanwhile, former Phillies manager Terry Francona said left-hander John Halama will take Wells' spot in the rotation and start next Tuesday at Detroit.

After Thursday, Miller's next rehabilitation start is scheduled for Tuesday and he could be ready to pitch against Seattle on May 8.
