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

There is no timetable for when Miller can resume baseball activities, however, so it's possible next Friday might be a tad aggressive for a timetable. The infielder was placed on the DL this week with a lower abdominal strain.
May 19 - 3:38 PM

Rays placed 2B Brad Miller on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 16, with a lower abdominal strain.

Miller suffered the injury on Monday night and hasn't played since. He was off to a disappointing start at the plate this season, with a weak .205/.350/.318 batting line and only two home runs in 39 games. Miller slugged a career-high 30 home runs in 2016. Daniel Robertson has been filling in at second base for Tampa Bay.

Brad Miller (abdomen) remains out of the Rays' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Indians.

Miller tweaked his lower abdomen on Monday night and was scratched from Tuesday's starting lineup after experiencing lingering discomfort during pregame drills. He's considered day-to-day for now. Daniel Robertson will start at second base and bat eighth Wednesday versus Cleveland right-hander Josh Tomlin.

Brad Miller is out Tuesday after tweaking his lower abdomen during Monday's game.

Brad Miller was scratched from Tuesday's lineup against the Indians.

No word on the reason for the change. Daniel Robertson will cover second base duties while Kevin Kiermaier will slide into the No. 2 spot.
May 16 - 2:54 PM

Brad Miller is not in the Rays' starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Red Sox.

With Chris Sale on the hill for the Red Sox, manager Kevin Cash is giving a few of his regular lefties a day off, for good reason. Daniel Robertson is starting at second base and batting second for the Rays on Saturday.
May 13 - 10:25 AM

Brad Miller finished 0-for-4 with a strikeout Sunday in the Rays' loss to the Blue Jays.

Miller is now batting just .190 with a .656 OPS and one home run in 32 games this season. He launched 30 home runs in 152 games last year.
May 7 - 4:19 PM

Brad Miller is not in the Rays' lineup Friday.

He's getting a day off with the Blue Jays throwing lefty Francisco Liriano. Daniel Robertson will cover second base.

Brad Miller is not in the Rays' starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Blue Jays.

He'll take a seat against tough southpaw Francisco Liriano in this one. Daniel Robertson will start in his place at second base and is batting seventh for the Rays on Saturday.

Brad Miller broke out Friday against Rick Porcello and the Red Sox by going 3-for-4 with a solo homer, a triple, a walk, and three runs scored.

Miller and Steven Souza homered back-to-back against Rick Porcello in the fifth inning. It was Miller’s first home run of the year. It was some long-awaited signs of life from the 27-year-old, who entered Friday’s contest with a miserable .143/.268/.171 batting line through his first 10 games. We’re not expecting 30 homers again, but he should be a useful fantasy option again in 2017.
Apr 14 - 11:33 PM

Brad Miller is out of the Rays' starting lineup on Wednesday versus the Yankees.

Daniel Robertson will get the nod at second base and hit seventh against Yankees left-hander Jordan Montgomery. Miller is batting just .172 with a .521 OPS through eight regular-season games.
Apr 12 - 10:17 AM

Brad Miller finished 2-for-3 with a double and two runs scored Friday against the Tigers.

Miller had been 0-for-11 this spring. Still, he's getting good reviews for his work at second base. He's expected to play there pretty regularly, though he could start at first base versus some lefties.
Mar 3 - 5:25 PM

According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, the Rays "primary plan" is to use Brad Miller at second base.

Miller came to Tampa Bay as a shortstop but moved to first base last year after the Rays acquired Matt Duffy from San Francisco. The Rays traded Logan Forsythe to the Dodgers earlier this week, creating a need at second base. Miller has made 13 career starts at second, so he does have some experience there. With Miller moving to second base, the Rays could look to sign a first baseman. Chris Carter, Mike Napoli and Mark Reynolds are all available.
