Brad Miller went 2-for-4 with an RBI triple and a stolen base on Saturday.

He was picked off second base after the steal, so it wasn't all good. Still, it was a positive development. Now that Chris Taylor is healthy again, Miller could face competition at shortstop in two or three weeks. However, if he gets hot, the job should be his for good.

Brad Miller hit a go-ahead RBI double to push the Mariners past the A's 5-4 in extra innings Saturday.

Miller's 11th-inning double off A's reliever Fernando Abad finally iced the victory for the Mariners in a very back-and-forth game. He's batting .333/.375/.600 in five games this season and will need to continue playing well to hold off Chris Taylor (wrist) for the Mariners' starting shortstop gig.

Brad Miller smacked a two-run triple on Friday, helping to lead the Mariners to a 5-4 victory over the Rockies in Cactus League action.

He then came around to score, capping off a three-run inning against Rockies starter Jordan Lyles in the second. While he won the starting shortstop job by default with Chris Taylor hurt, Miller has had a nice spring in his own right, hitting .295 (13-for-44) with two homers and seven RBI.

Brad Miller (illness) is back in the Mariners' Cactus League lineup on Monday.

Miller missed three games with a stomach virus. He'll be at shortstop for the M's on Opening Day.
Mar 30 - 10:33 AM

Brad Miller missed a third straight game Sunday with a stomach virus.

Miller said he was feeling better, so he should be back out there in a day or so. The 25-year-old will be the Opening Day shortstop for the Mariners.
Mar 29 - 3:28 PM

Brad Miller clubbed a pair of solo home runs in his two at-bats Monday versus the Indians.

Miller took Carlos Carrasco deep in the third inning and Bruce Chen in the fifth. The 25-year-old is battling Chris Taylor for the starting shortstop job heading into the regular season. Miller put up mediocre numbers last season, batting .221 with 10 home runs and 36 RBI in 411 plate appearances.
Mar 9 - 6:33 PM

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Saturday that the team has yet to settle on their shortstop for the upcoming season.

That means that Brad Miller and Chris Taylor will compete for the job this spring. McClendon did note that whichever candidate secures the job, that the shortstop is likely to bat ninth, sapping their already minimal fantasy value.

A Mariners official told Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune that the club isn't looking to trade Brad Miller.

"Understand this: We’re not looking to trade him," the official said. "I’m not saying it won’t happen, but it’s a lot less likely than some people seem to think." Miller's name has been linked to a number of shortstop-needy clubs after he struggled this past season, but the Mariners aren't exactly set at the position, either. Assuming no deal is made, Miller will likely battle Chris Taylor for the job in spring.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York was told by multiple insiders that the Mets could find their shortstop in a trade with the Mariners.

The Mariners dealt Nick Franklin to the Rays in a three-team trade in July, but they still have Brad Miller and Chris Taylor in-house and could deal one of them to upgrade in another area. The Mets have reportedly talked to the Mariners about a trade for one of their shortstops before, so they should have a good sense of what it could take to get a deal done. However, Miller's value is much lower now than it was a year ago.

Brad Miller finished 2-for-4 with a triple, run scored and three RBI Monday as the Mariners beat the Astros 4-1.

Miller is 7-for-13 with a double, triple, homer, steal, five RBI and two runs scored in his last four games. Hopefully he'll close out the month hot, because this has been a season to forget for Miller. After a promising .265/.318/.418 slash line as a 23-year-old rookie last year, he's fallen off to a .217 average and .655 OPS. Interestingly, his WAR was 2.0 last year, and not far off now with a 1.4 mark in 2014 in comparable at-bats.

Brad Miller finished 4-for-4 with a double and a steal against the Rangers on Saturday.

Miller is playing a lot more now after taking a backseat to Chris Taylor in August, and he's producing, with nine hits and two homers in 18 at-bats over his last six games. The talent is there for him to keep it up, but that hinges on the Mariners continuing to use him.

Brad Miller hit a solo home run on Monday against the Athletics.

Miller finished 1-for-3. His sixth inning home run off of Jason Hammel was the only run that Hammel allowed, and was one of just three hits that the Hammel surrendered over eight innings. The home run was Miller's ninth and gave him 31 RBI. Miller's a non-factor from a fantasy standpoint. He's slashing .207/.281/.345.

Brad Miller went 3-for-3 with two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Nationals.

Getting a rare start, Miller made the most of it, knocking a double among his three hits. The good day brought his average up to .206 -- the primary reason he's not a starter anymore -- with 39 runs scored on the year. With Chris Taylor still playing well, Miller will remain a part-time player going forward.

Making his fourth start of the month, Brad Miller went 0-for-3 with a walk Tuesday against the Phillies.

It's just the second time in August that he's had three plate appearances in a game; in two of his previous three starts, he was taken out after two at-bats. It doesn't look like he'll be earning any additional playing time at Chris Taylor's expense.
