Shelby Miller said, “Physically I’m in great shape. Mentally right where I need to be so I think that all just kind of builds off each other. And the characteristics, a good recipe for hopefully a successful 2019 season is staying healthy. I never thought I’d have to be that guy that would have to have Tommy John surgery. I thought I was always taking care of my body and eating the right way and all the things you’d think would prevent that kind of injury. And then that happens to you. I actually had a 50% tear so mine wasn’t really torn off the bone. But I just went ahead and repaired it. It’s a tough surgery to go through for anybody.”
Your first big purchase you made after signing your first pro contract?
Miller said, “First purchase after I signed was a 2009 Ford F-250 King Ranch. Lifted it up and did all the stuff to it. It was a dream truck for me.”
Miller had his truck for 6 years.
Miller also said he is a Texas A&M fan.
Miller said, “I committed to play baseball there. And I just like the fans the way they are into the games. The Johnny Manziel era was pretty cool so right now they don’t look quite as good as they did. That’s who I root for.”
