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. Nov 12 - 11:14 AM

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.
Sep 7 - 2:20 AM

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.
Sep 1 - 7:06 PM

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.
Aug 31 - 8:14 PM

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.
Aug 19 - 10:48 PM

Brad Miller fielded grounders at second base prior to Thursday's game and could also shag some flyballs.

It's a clear indication that Chris Taylor has officially taken over as the Mariners' starter at shortstop. Taylor is off to a .367/.394/.500 start at the dish in his first eight games, while Miller sports a sickly .199/.272/.318 batting line for the season. Miller is droppable in all but the deepest of fantasy leagues.
Aug 7 - 8:19 PM

Brad Miller, who is playing for his job, walked three times and struck out once as the Mariners' No. 9 hitter on Saturday.

Miller will certainly be sitting against lefties with Chris Taylor up. How the two split time against right-handers could be a day-to-day decision from Lloyd McClendon. Miller has faded again of late after his strong June, but it's not like his early season swoon when he was striking out every third at-bat; he has an 11/7 K/BB ratio in 53 at-bats this month. He's still the Mariners' best option as a shortstop against righties.
Jul 26 - 1:38 AM

Brad Miller was ejected from Saturday's game versus the A's.

Miller was arguing balls and strikes. He finished the game 0-for-1 with a walk and a strikeout.
Jul 12 - 11:20 PM

Brad Miller finished 2-for-4 in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

Miller batted .298/.355/.512 in a resurgent June, and he's got four hits in 14 at-bats this month. It all adds up to an unimpressive .209/.276/.339 line, but his talent and the life he showed in June makes him a worthwhile flyer in deeper leagues in the second half.
Jul 6 - 6:58 PM

Brad Miller smashed an RBI double off Ronald Belisario in the 14th inning on Saturday, leading the Mariners to a come-from-behind 3-2 victory over the White Sox.

Miller’s double plated Michael Saunders who had singled and swiped second base to put himself in scoring position. The rookie shortstop is now hitting .204/.273/.336 with 24 RBI on the season.
Jul 5 - 6:58 PM

Brad Miller hit a go-ahead solo homer in a 7-5 win over the Royals on Friday.

Miller took Royals' closer Greg Holland deep in the ninth inning to put the Mariners ahead. While Miller does have a little pop in the bat, the shortstop is still hitting just .195/.267/.319 and needs to do more to regain relevancy in mixed leagues.
Jun 21 - 12:28 AM

Brad Miller was 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Friday night against the Rays.

He had plenty of company, as every hitter for the Mariners on Friday struck out at least once. Miller has shown some modest signs of progress in recent days, but he's 0-for-6 with five strikeouts and one walk over his past two games. The 24-year-old still owns an ugly .167/.243/.268 batting line on the year. Still, with Nick Franklin in the minors again, his playing time appears safe for the short-term.
Jun 6 - 11:36 PM

Brad Miller went 2-for-3 with an RBI and two runs scored against the Braves on Tuesday.

Miller has struggled to get anything going offensively this season, as Tuesday's two-hit game raised his line to a meager .173/.247/.278. He does have six hits in his last 16 at-bats, a small ray of hope for his owners, and the demotion of Nick Franklin reassures that his spot in the starting lineup is safe for the near future.
Jun 3 - 10:32 PM

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Wednesday that he's sticking with Brad Miller as his starting shortstop for the time being.

Miller is 1-for-21 so far on the team's current homestand to drop his batting average for the year down to .156. "I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t concerned," McClendon said. "He’s struggling right now and I’m trying to get him out of it. I’ve said a few times, you either play ‘em or you bench ‘em. We’re trying to play him and see if he can come out of it." The M's could eventually give Nick Franklin a look at short if Miller's struggles continue.
