Miller just missed nearly three weeks of action with an abdominal strain. The second baseman has posted a weak .194/.343/.302 batting line with two home runs in 42 games this season for the Rays. He slugged a career-high 30 home runs in 2016. Daniel Robertson will continue to see regular playing time.

Brad Miller (abdomen) returned to the lineup Friday in Seattle, finishing hitless in four at-bats with two strikeouts and a costly error.

Miller's average dipped to .199 and he committed his eighth error on a ground ball. Perhaps he was a bit rusty or had some nerves after not having played since May 15, but he wasn't doing all that well before his injury either.

Brad Miller (abdomen) is hoping to be ready for activation from the disabled list when first eligible on May 26.
