Miller recovering after foot surgery

Andrew Miller was making his way slowly up a sidewalk on Boylston Street this afternoon. His left foot was wrapped in a large cast, the result of surgery to repair a torn ligament. Miller will miss the rest of the season.

Miller had his left knee resting on a scooter-like contraption that he was pushing along.

“I can’t do much, but I’ll be at the game,” he said. “It’ll be good to see everybody.”

Miller, a lefthanded reliever, was injured on July 6 when he came off the mound to cover home plate and planted his foot awkwardly.

Miller’s injury prompted the Red Sox to acquire lefty Matt Thornton from the White Sox.
