Cardinals top prospect Shelby Miller was left behind on Double-A Springfield's current road trip as he serves a team-imposed suspension.
While Cardinals officials said they would not discuss the specifics of the reasons for the suspension, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that it is tied to an altercation at an apartment complex that involved alcohol. Miller does not turn 21 until October.
The team had previously announced publicly that Miller was being skipped for one start to limit his number of innings.
Miller is 9-6, 2.93 between stops at high Class A Palm Beach and Springfield this season. The hard-throwing righthander was the Cardinals' first-round pick in 2009 out of Brownwood, Texas.
