St. Louis ace Adam Wainwright says Miller was overlooked.

“I think sometimes we forget what he was able to do for us last year,” Wainwright said. “Winning 15 games as a rookie is pretty awesome.”

This year, Miller wants to hit the 200-inning mark. He also wants to pitch into the seventh and eighth innings more often.

“The deeper you go,” he said, “the better chance you have to win, and the better it is for the bullpen.”
