Date:

Brad Miller is not in the Rays starting lineup for Friday's showdown against the Mariners.

He'll take a seat against his former club with southpaw James Paxton on the hill for the Mariners. The hot-hitting Tim Beckham will start in his place at shortstop and bat seventh for the Rays on Friday.
Jul 22 - 6:44 PM

Brad Miller hit his 14th home run of the season in a loss to the Red Sox on Saturday.

Miller took Red Sox starter Rick Porcello deep for a solo shot in the first inning, his only hit on the day. He's now got 14 homers overall, already a personal best, and he's hit four in nine July games. The promise has been there since Miller's debut in 2013, and it appears he's finally delivering on that promise.
Jul 9 - 10:18 PM

Brad Miller homered for the Rays' only run of the game and also singled and walked Thursday against the Angels.

And he did it starting against a left-hander, something he rarely did during the first 2 1/2 months of the season. The homer came off righty Joe Smith, but he reached twice against Hector Santiago before that. Miller is up to 13 homers on the year.
Jul 7 - 3:21 PM

Brad Miller finished 2-for-4 with a homer and two runs scored Monday in the Rays' defeat of the Angels.

Miller hit a solo shot off Angels starter Nick Tropeano in the bottom of the third and then singled off Fernando Salas in Tampa Bay's two-run sixth. The overall consistency hasn't always been there, but Miller has an impressive 12 home runs in 75 games this season. He's well on his way to a 20-homer campaign -- pretty valuable for a shortstop.
Jul 4 - 4:49 PM

Brad Miller swatted a two-run home run in the ninth inning on Friday, keeping the Rays from getting shut out at the hand of the Tigers.

Miller fell behind 0-2 against Mark Lowe before swatting an opposite-field shot just over the left field wall. He has flashed impressive power this season, slashing .248/.299/.457 with 11 bombs and 28 RBI.
Jul 1 - 10:18 PM

Brad Miller went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Miller got the start despite lefty David Price on the hill and still managed to have a nice day. Tim Beckham went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts and hasn’t really hit anybody this season, so we could see more of Miller against left-handers in the future.
Jun 29 - 3:11 PM

Brad Miller hit his 10th home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox.

Miller connected with a Junichi Tazawa pitch in the seventh inning for the solo bomb. He's now homered four times in his last 11 games after hitting six in his first 58. Miller's .319 batting average over his last 12 games has his overall line up to .248/.299/.455.
Jun 28 - 10:41 PM

Brad Miller will serve as the designated hitter in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Orioles.

Corey Dickerson was the DH on Friday, but he's starting in left field Saturday. Tim Beckham will make the start at shortstop.
Jun 25 - 11:09 AM

Brad Miller swatted his seventh home run of the season as the Rays fell to the Giants in the opening game of a three-game set on Friday.

Miller's ninth-inning blast off Jeff Samardzija was the only thing that prevented the Rays from being shut out. He finished the night 1-for-4, raising his season slash to .234/.289/.428 to go along with the aforementioned seven bombs and 22 RBI.
Jun 17 - 10:35 PM

Brad Miller went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Tuesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

The Rays managed just three singles against Zack Greinke, so Miller probably shouldn't feel too bad about his hit-less performance. For the season, the 26-year-old is slashing .237/.292/.424 with 10 doubles, four steals, five homers and 18 RBI over 177 at-bats. There isn't a ton to love here on the fantasy level, but Miller at least offers the possibility of double-digit steals and home runs for very deep AL-only formats.
Jun 8 - 12:11 AM

Brad Miller went 3-for-5 with three RBI in Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays.

He tripled in a run in the second inning and doubled in a pair in the seventh, finishing the night a home run shy of the cycle. Funnily enough, the guy who replaced Miller late in the blowout win, Taylor Motter, homered in the ninth. Miller has picked it up after a slow start, batting .308 with four homers and nine RBI over his last 15 games.
May 17 - 10:54 PM

Brad Miller hit his fifth home run of the season, a two-run shot, in Saturday's win over the Athletics.

Miller's two-run blast in the third inning ended up being enough for starter Matt Andriese, who threw a complete-game shutout. The shortstop finished 1-for-5 in the game. The Rays continue to roll with the 26-year-old, perhaps for lack of better options, despite his .204/.274/.398 line this year. He's not a fantasy asset outside of AL-only leagues.
May 14 - 9:19 PM

Brad Miller went 4-for-5 and hit his third homer Friday against the Angels.

Well, he was certainly due. The big game raised his average from .174 to .216. Miller hasn't been playing against lefties recently, but that should change if he can heat up. After all, Tim Beckham hasn't shown anything at all in his limited time.
May 7 - 1:58 AM

Brad Miller clubbed his second home run of the season as the Rays fell to the Blue Jays on Friday evening.

Miller's solo blast off Drew Storen in the eighth inning merely got the Rays on the board, barely cutting into a 6-0 deficit at the time. He also singled, finishing the night 2-for-3 plus a walk to raise his season slash to .172/.243/.344.
