Brad Miller (groin) hopes to be activated from the disabled list Friday.

Miller tested out his groin with some more running Monday and is slated to begin a rehab assignment with High-A Charlotte on Tuesday if he feels OK. He'll play a couple games there before returning Friday if all goes well.
Apr 16 - 5:28 PM

Brad Miller (groin) did some running Saturday and took grounders and hit in the batting cage Sunday.

As long as he feels OK on Monday, it sounds like Miller will be cleared to begin a rehab assignment. He's missed the last week with a strained groin but appears to be on track for a return perhaps by the end of the week.
Apr 15 - 12:09 PM

Rays placed INF Brad Miller on the 10-day disabled list with a groin strain.

Miller suffered the injury while running the bases during Sunday's loss to the Red Sox. The severity of the injury isn't yet known, so there's a chance it could be longer than a minimum stint on the disabled list.
Apr 8 - 7:00 PM

Brad Miller socked a homer in a 2-1 loss to the Red Sox on Sunday.

Miller's homer was the only run of the game for the Rays, and it came in the second inning off of Boston starter Hector Velazquez. The former Mariner infielder has obvious power from the left-side, but his inability to hit for average makes him a risky proposition for the 2018 season.
Apr 1 - 5:19 PM

Brad Miller hit a two-run homer Monday to give the Rays their runs in a 2-2 game against the Tigers.

There's been some talk of the Rays platooning Miller and C.J. Cron, but they should have plenty of room for both to play fairly regularly. Miller, who missed some time with a broken toe, is hitting .250/.308/.500 even though he's fanned 13 times in 24 at-bats. He's far from a sure thing, but as a middle-infield eligible player with 30-homer power, he has some upside.
Mar 26 - 4:18 PM

Brad Miller (toe) went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles and a run scored as his team fell to the Red Sox in Saturday's spring action.

This was just his second game back after missing three weeks with a broken toe. The infielder broke out with 30 home runs in 2016 but collapsed to a .201 batting average with nine homers and 40 RBI last year. He is penciled in as the Rays' starting second baseman this year.
Mar 17 - 4:20 PM

Brad Miller (toe) will return to the lineup for the Rays on Saturday against the Red Sox.

Miller played in a minor league game on Thursday, striking out twice and going 0-for-4. It'll be his first Grapefruit League action since February 23. Assuming there are no setbacks, he should be good to go for Opening Day.
Mar 16 - 11:43 AM

Brad Miller (toe) went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in a minor league game Thursday.

The important thing is that his broken right pinkie toe held up fine. Miller hasn't appeared in a Grapefruit League game since taking two at-bats on February 23, but the Rays think he will be ready for Opening Day.
Mar 15 - 2:29 PM

Brad Miller (toe) is scheduled to play in a minor league game Thursday.

Miller has been sidelined since February 23 because of a broken right pinkie toe, but he told reporters Thursday morning in Rays camp that he is "over" the injury and fully expects to be ready for Opening Day. The 28-year-old struggled to a .201/.327/.337 batting line with nine home runs in 110 games last season. He belted a career-high 30 home runs in 2016.
Mar 15 - 8:57 AM

Brad Miller (toe) will remain sidelined from Grapefruit League play for another 4-5 days.

Miller hasn't appeared in a Grapefruit League game since February 23 because of a broken right pinkie toe, but Rays manager Kevin Cash said Tuesday that he's optimistic the 28-year-old will be ready for Opening Day. Miller is coming off a dreadful 2017 season, after slugging a career-high 30 home runs in 2016. He should probably be off the radar in mixed fantasy leagues.
Mar 14 - 8:58 AM

Brad Miller (toe) will be shut down for the next couple of days.

Miller said he felt "something creeping in" while playing in a short simulated game on Tuesday. He broke his right pinkie toe in February and is worried that a change in his gait -- or manner of movement -- could cause a flareup of his previous hip issues or even cause him to aggravate the core muscle injury that needed a surgical repair in October. The second baseman may be questionable for Opening Day at this point. He's taken just two Grapefruit League at-bats.
Mar 7 - 8:45 AM

Brad Miller (toe) will play in a simulated game on Tuesday.

This will be Miller's first game action since he suffered a small fracture in his right pinkie toe late last month. Assuming all goes well, he shouldn't be far off from Grapefruit League action. The Rays recently acquired C.J. Cron, so Miller figures to see a lot of time at second base this season. The 28-year-old struggled with a .201/.327/.337 batting line in 2017.
Mar 6 - 8:48 AM

Brad Miller (toe) won't return to Grapefruit League action until Tuesday, at the earliest.

Miller suffered a small fracture in his right pinkie toe this week in Rays camp. He's still going through drills and should be fine for the start of the regular season. The 28-year-old has fallen off the fantasy radar after batting just .201/.327/.337 with nine home runs and 40 RBI over 110 games in 2017. He hit a career-high 30 home runs in 2016.
Mar 1 - 10:06 AM

Brad Miller will be sidelined for a couple of days due to a broken right pinkie toe.

Miller stubbed his toe a couple of days back and is still feeling some discomfort. He took some ground balls on Monday, but the Rays don't want him to push things. Consider him day-to-day.
