Arizona's Miller considering Tommy John surgery for UCL tear

PHOENIX (AP) Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Shelby Miller has a partially torn ligament in his throwing elbow, leaving him with a difficult decision.

He could have Tommy John surgery, a route that would keep him out at least until the middle of next season. He also could try rehabilitating it, even go with stem cell injections, though that comes with the risk of tearing the ligament completely, leading to surgery anyway.

"It's not 100 percent torn where it's automatic having to get surgery," Miller said Thursday. "It's just in that area where you don't know what the future holds for it or whether it holds up or not. I'm deciding what I'm going to do."
