Wade Miller working toward May return

Berks County native Wade Miller went 4 2/3 innings and allowed two earned runs on four hits, a walk, and four strikeouts for Class A Greenville yesterday in his first rehab start. He threw 73 pitches and according to Boston manager Terry Francona, got his velocity above 90 mph.

"His outing was far more good than bad," Francona told the Boston Globe. "He had a real good breaking ball. He was living around 88-89, which isn't where he will be but it was pretty good."

Miller, recovering from a frayed rotator cuff, is expected to make his next rehab start on Monday, though for which minor league team has yet to be determined. He's expected to make another two or three rehab starts then return to the Red Sox sometime in May.
