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.

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.

Brad Miller went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts from the ninth spot in the order on Tuesday.

It was a really tough assignment for Miller against fellow lefty David Price, but he's not hitting the guys he's supposed to hit, either. In fact, he's just 5-for-42 this month, coming off an April in which he hit .173. The Mariners have showed considerable patience, but it's yet to pay off. He's a candidate to be sent down to Triple-A.
May 14 - 1:10 AM

Brad Miller went 0-for-5 with a walk and committed two errors Wednesday in the doubleheader against the A's.

This certainly won't help Miller's standing in Seattle. We're still big believers in his bat, but it wouldn't be much of a surprise to see him sent down for a bit, with Nick Franklin coming up to play shortstop.
May 7 - 10:32 PM

Brad Miller went 1-for-3 with a walk and two steals in Monday's 4-2 victory over the A's.

Miller has quietly put his best foot forward since the calendar turned after a horrific April in which he slashed .173/.212/.333. The 24-year-old shortstop is now 4-for-13 (.308) with two walks since May 1. Miller hit No. 8 today against lefty Scott Kazmir, but he should slide back up to No. 2 against right-handers.
May 6 - 12:56 AM

Even though the Mariners are facing a left-hander in Dallas Keuchel, Brad Miller is making his third straight start Saturday.

It's a nice change, given that he started one game in six days prior to rejoining the lineup on Thursday. Miller is hitting eighth today versus lefty, but he was in the two hole last night against right-hander Brad Peacock.
May 3 - 12:39 PM

Brad Miller went 2-for-5 with two singles in Friday's extra-inning loss to the Astros.

After delivering an RBI single on Thursday, Miller notched his first multi-hit game since April 17. We'll call that progress. Miller was back in the No. 2 spot on Friday and hopefully he'll pick things up enough to stick there.
