PHOENIX (AP) Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Shelby Miller has a partially torn ligament in his elbow and is considering Tommy John surgery.

Miller said Thursday that he has a tear in his right ulnar collateral ligament, but it was not a 100 percent tear. He also has a flexor strain in his elbow.

Miller has been on the disabled list since Monday with right forearm soreness and consulted with three different doctors who came up with similar diagnoses.
