News: Miller has been traded to the Braves as part of a four-player swap that will send Jason Heyward to the Cardinals. Impact: The shift to Atlanta firms up Miller's job security, while the Braves will have four years of club control on the former first-round pick. Miller has not tossed 200 innings in a big league season thus far in his career, but at age 24, he offers a much-needed stabilizing presence in the middle of the Atlanta rotation. In order for the deal to be considered a success, the Braves will need Miller to push his strikeout rate back up closer to his 2013 level (23.4 K%, 8.8 K/9) after a significant slide last season (16.6% K%, 6.3 K/9) drove a spike in his ERA (3.74) and FIP (4.54).(RotoWire, )
