|Chris Taylor in, Brad Miller out of Monday lineup |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(2:40 pm ET) Chris Taylor could be wresting at-bats away from disappointing Brad Miller at shortstop for the Mariners. The former is in the lineup Tuesday against the host Indians. Taylor is starting for the second time in the last three games.
Taylor is 3 for 8 since his promotion. Miller has four hits in his last 25 at-bats and his batting average has sunk to .203. He is also tied for the American League lead in errors at that position with 14.

|Brad Miller caps June with fourth HR in last 13 games |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/1/14) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller continued his recent surge with a solo home run during a 10-4 win Monday at Houston. It was Miller's fourth home run in his last 13 games.
Miller hit .349 (15 for 43) with a .417 on-base percentage, .628 slugging percentage and 1.045 OPS over his last 13 starts in June. For the month, he hit .298 with a .355 on-base percentage, .512 slugging percentage, .867 OPS, five home runs, 12 RBI and 15 runs in 26 games.
|Though Brad Miller lacks the pedigree of a top prospect, he showed in his first half-season in the majors that he can be a plus contributor at a weak position, performing at about a 15-homer, 10-steal pace. Some Fantasy owners were already hot on his trail because of his performance in the minors, where he hit .334 with a .925 OPS in parts of three seasons. Of course, that included stops in the heavy-hitting California and Pacific Coast leagues, which no doubt hurt him in the prospect rankings, but to be fair, he was awesome at every stop. Will he be at this final one? Well, from the time he arrived June 28 to the end of the season, he was the 10th-best shortstop in Head-to-Head leagues and the eighth-best in Rotisserie, so he doesn't necessarily need to be awesome to pull his weight in Fantasy. Miller still has something to prove -- keep in mind Dustin Ackley, with his superior pedigree, had an impressive first season as well -- so you wouldn't want to completely sell out for his potential. But provided he holds off Nick Franklin this spring, maybe he edges out players like Jed Lowrie and J.J. Hardy because of the possibility for improvement.
