Brad Miller will be the Mariners' starting center fielder following the trade of Austin Jackson.
Miller was squeezed out of a job when Ketel Marte came up, but he's now got another starting gig at another position. He's making just his fourth career start in center on Monday, but the M's evidently think he's taken well enough to the position to handle it down the stretch. Aug 31 - 6:22 PM

Brad Miller collected his eighth homer and his 12th double Friday against the A's.

It's Miller's second homer in four games. His struggles in limited action against left-handers have taken a toll on his numbers, but he's hitting .267/.357/.487 versus righties.
Jul 4 - 1:11 AM

Despite the return of Chris Taylor, Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon clarified Thursday that Brad Miller will remain the team's starting shortstop.

The 25-year-old has struggled at the dish this season, slashing .238/.319/.403 with seven homers and 22 RBI in his 74 games. It sounds like it's a vote of confidence from the skipper, but if Taylor continues to mash the baseball he'll find his way into more playing time soon enough.

Brad Miller launched a two-run home run in a 2-for-4 effort as the Mariners shut the Padres out 5-0 on Tuesday.

Miller took Ian Kennedy out to right-center in the fourth inning for a two-run homer, making it a 4-0 Mariners lead at the time. It's his seventh homer of the season. He looks certain to surpass his career high of 10 set last season. He's also knocked in 22 runs while batting a passable .237/.316/.404.
Jul 1 - 12:43 AM

Brad Miller knocked in the Mariners' only two runs Tuesday with an RBI single and a solo homer in a loss to the Giants.

The M's drew four walks against Tim Lincecum, but the righty was able to hold them relatively in check on the scoreboard. The longball was Miller's first in 26 games, but he now has six on the season to go along with five stolen bases. The average (.237) isn't anything to write home about, but Miller has given fantasy owners some numbers production, especially for a guy who lost his starting job for a few weeks.

Brad Miller went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Rays.

Miller's RBI single in the seventh inning off of Chris Archer put the Mariners on the board, but it would be the only run they scored in the 3-1 loss. Miller is hitting .228/.311/.407 with five homers and 15 RBI in what's been a disappointing offensive season to this point.
Jun 7 - 7:20 PM

Brad Miller is not in the Mariners starting lineup on Saturday against the Blue Jays.

He'll take a seat against opposing southpaw Mark Buehrle, with Chris Taylor starting at shortstop and hitting ninth for the M's. Look for Miller to be back in there for Sunday's series finale.
May 23 - 10:43 AM

Brad Miller slugged two solo home runs Saturday in the Mariners' loss to the Red Sox.

Miller hit both of his big flies off Red Sox starter Rick Porcello, but that represented that entirety of Seattle's offensive output for the night. Miller was at DH and batting second. He seems to have found new life since being moved into a roving utility role.
May 17 - 12:07 AM

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said that he's going to start playing Brad Miller in the outfield and at first base, as well as at shortstop.

McClendon envisions Miller as a sort of "super-utility" player. It's a little difficult to see the "super" part of that equation, as Miller is hitting .250/.301/.382 and has never played the outfield. Miller's made it clear that he still views himself as a shortstop, but he also indicated that he'll do whatever the team asks of him.
May 5 - 7:12 PM

Brad Miller is not in the Mariners' lineup Sunday.

It's simply a day of rest. Willie Bloomquist is taking Miller's spot at shortstop Sunday, while Mike Zunino is getting a breather behind the plate in favor of Jesus Sucre.

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.
Apr 19 - 1:15 AM

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.
Apr 11 - 8:01 PM

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.
Apr 4 - 1:29 AM

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.
