After multiple medical opinions, the worst was confirmed regarding the status of Shelby Miller's right elbow Thursday: The Arizona Diamondbacks starter has a tear in his ulnar collateral ligament as well as a flexor strain, according to 98.7 FM's Craig Grialou.

The club also announced he has been transferred to the 60-day disabled list.

Miller was recently assessed by renowned Tommy John surgeon Dr. James Andrews, though the 26-year-old hasn't decided whether he'll undergo the procedure.

"Still haven't made a decision on what I'm going to do yet," Miller told reporters. "Just kind of seeing all the options available and what scenarios are best for me and the team."

Miller struggled in his debut season with the Diamondbacks in 2015 after coming over in a high-profile trade the offseason prior, registering a 6.42 ERA in 20 starts with Arizona. His second season with the Diamondbacks was going much better, however. Miller had crafted a 4.09 ERA in four outings (22 innings) before having to leave his start against the Los Angeles Dodgers on April 23 with elbow discomfort.
