Andrew Miller won’t help the Indians until after the All-Star break.

The excellent late-inning reliever , who pushed Cleveland through the postseason in 2016, has made progress with his right knee injury but will not be activated until later this month. Miller has been sidelined with inflammation in his knee since May 26, and his comeback recently stalled.

But he threw 31 pitches off a mound on Thursday, and the Indians were excited and encouraged by his progress. Pitching coach Carl Willis told manager Terry Francona that Miller looked better.

”Went well,” Francona said Friday before the Indians opened a three-game series with Oakland. ”By Carl’s account Daniel Winnik Jersey , you can really tell the difference that he’s getting a little more sure of himself. The good news is that he really is making strides. My goodness, if we can get him back in time to get him on a roll, that’s the biggest goal.”

Francona said Miller will continue throwing bullpen sessions over the next week. With the All-Star break starting on July 16, Francona said it’s likely the Indians will continue to take it slow with the 32-year-old.

”To try to do this right, I think we need to let him throw his bullpens Willie Young Jersey ,” Francona said, adding it’s possible Miller will be sent on a minor-league rehab assignment before he’s activated.

The left-hander has been dealing with knee issues since last year and has been limited to just 17 appearances this season. Miller was on the DL twice in 2017 with patella tendinitis.

Cleveland’s bullpen isn’t the same without Miller, who dominated in the `16 postseason – he struck out 30 in 19 1-3 innings – and helped the Indians get to their first World Series since 1997.

Miller opened this season with 10 scoreless innings before hurting his left hamstring and going on the disabled list. He struggled when he returned and is 1-3 with a 4.40 ERA over 14 1-3 innings.

Miller’s health could impact what the Indians decide to do before the July 31 trading deadline.

Hockey tends to have some of the better behaved athletes in sports. The culture of hockey lends itself to kids needing parents who are financially stable because the cost of playing hockey is higher than most sports. It's come to the point where some are concerned about hockey's future, worrying it's becoming too elitist.

Not all NHL players grew up in wealthy families who basically had everything. Not all NHL players grew up in聽underprivileged neighborhoods,聽surrounded by crime either. There's a combination of both Emmitt Smith Jersey , just like athletes in other sports, especially the NFL and NBA. But this is an NHL-centered list, so we'll turn our attention to some hockey stars since they're not talked about a lot in the media anyway.

Just a general notification, you probably won't be surprised by some of these names. The contrast between these three players and beyond will most likely shock you and cause you to see the NHL in a different way instead of the usual puppies and rainbows you might've thought about by聽simply watching hockey games on your television and/or following your favorite teams on social media. That being said, success comes to people from all walks of life.

Here are 10 NHL players who were rich before making it pro and 10 who were poor.
