Miller's fresh start begins tonight against the Tribe

PHOENIX (Tucson News Now) -

The Shelby Miller redemption season begins on Friday at Chase Field in Phoenix when the Arizona Diamondbacks open a three-game weekend series with the American League Champion Cleveland Indians.

Miller had the worst year of his career last season, his first in the desert.

He posted a record of 3-12 with a career-high 6.15 ERA in 20 starts. 

He struggled with his command, spent almost a month on the disabled list with a sprained index finger as well as a 10-start demotion stint in the minor leagues.

Things seem to improve when he was recalled in September. Miller made six starts in the final month of the season with a 3.98 ERA.

He was a 2015 NL All-Star despite losing a career-high 17 games with a bad team in Atlanta.

The Diamondbacks acquired the righty that off-season in a December 2015 five-player trade.

Arizona (3-1) enters the weekend after winning a season-opening series over the San Francisco Giants.

The Indians (3-0) swept their season-opening series at the Texas Rangers.
